I have a demijohn of wine which I added finings to. The next day, a large pink leathery wine mosnter had grown on the surface and has been there for a few days now. The monster, as I said looks moist, leathery, has tendrils which descend down into the wine, and almost looks alive. The wine appears to still be cloudy and hasn't even begun to show signs of clearing
This is how the surface of the monster appears
And this shows the tendrils descending into the wine
Is this wine ruined, or is this a normal part of how some finings work? If it's not normal, is there anything I can do to recover it?
