yet another question. I am about 7 days into clarification to look at the wine it looks clear but if I shine a flashlight into it I can see the beam how long can I let this wine sit in a carboy to clear up, also should I add more clearing agents or just let it sit

Did you degas your wine before adding the clearing agents? if not then this might be keeping your wine from clearing. If not then get spoon and swish it around for a minute or two. Its ok to let the wine sit in the carboy for a while. I left mine in the carboy for a year.

Looks like they've got a better, i.e., more expensive, solution now:

That's like 20 times more expensive than California's!

I degassed with the spoon> I mixed it like crazy for 5 mins let it bubble for 2min Mixed again for 5 rested for 2 and did 1 last mix for 5 min, The wine is clear to the eye but in a book I was reading it said to check with a flash light and see if you can see the beam. would it have a negitive effect if i was to add more clearing agents?

Whake4,

If youre wanting total clarity of your wines then may I suggest you try filtering it.
If you do, rack the wine once more before you run it through the filter.
