Racked our apple wine about Christmas time. Will bottle if the weather ever breaks here. The 3 gallon carboy and gallon jugs with normal airlocks have very fine settlings on the bottom. Wine is clear as a bell.
Had not quite a gallon left so we filled 4 wine bottles and stuck
balloons over the mouths. Nice clear settlings just like above, but
have noticed in the last couple weeks little bumps on the bottom. Looks
kind of like sand grains is about as close an analogy as I can come up with.
Bottles were washed and rinsed with sterilizer just like the carboy and
gallon jugs. Only difference is the balloon instead of airlock.
