I am making wine for the first time with grapes from my backyard. It is currently in carboys (two 5-gallon, one 3-gallon), has been there for about 9 days, and I haven't done any racking yet. Two of the carboys have cleared and settled, and one of them is still completely cloudy, so much so that it's hard to even see any sediment at the bottom.
The only reason for this that I can think of is that during pressing, while adjusting the press, it came apart a little and some of the skins and whatnot came out, and poured into the container. So this might be the one that has most of that in there. Otherwise, as far as I know, all conditions were the same.
Can I go ahead and rack it anyway? Is there a way to clear it without having to determine what the cause is? Could it be some of the must going in that caused this?
Thanks for any help at all! I am pretty much learning on the fly in this whole process.
