Making Wine is Fun Part II
|Racking into the secondary|
After 6 days in the primary bucket, fermentation has come to an end since there is little activity in the airlock. A SG reading should show 1.010 or less and that is what we have at this point. We are now ready to rack the wine into the glass carboy.
Not a lot of fermentation takes place at this next stage but enough to prepare for the last phase in 10 days when the final chemicals are added to the wine. I will describe the chemicals and what needs to be done in Part III so stay tuned.

Naturally the first little bit will be water that you simply siphon that into a container and once the wine comes, transfer the tube to the carboy.
