I conjoured up a batch (5 gal) of JOAM using K-V1116 and now after a month its slowing on the fermentation. Now the question is...from the looks of it Im showing a good inch of lees on the bottom. Since Ive used this higher abv yeast, would it be prudent now to rack it off the oranges and the lees and let it clear out and age or leave it on the lees and wait for the oranges to drop? Would racking it be a useless gesture on my part or is leaving it on the lees not going to be a problem with off tastes? Just looking for some advice at this point weather to leave it be or work it some.....

I would let it go till it clears up and then rack to a secondary for bulk aging or bottle it and then age it. Either way I would let it clear first, but im kinda new at this.
