finning agents in wine

Posted by BwRoper, Dec 21, 2010.

I have a question I am doing my first batch of wine red grapes.  I am just wondering if I add my bentonite in the begining of my first racking, can I add it again in my second racking three weeks later or no?

Why would you want to? I would rack and see how clear your wine is before fining. You can always fine before your second racking if you want to. What grapes are you using?

Well I saw a guy on you tube from canada put his bentonite in from the start.  I think it was just called (how to make wine).  But I am using welches grape juice.  I got two weaks left before I rack it again.  I am now starting on a new mix from concentrate and it is a mix of raspberry, white grape, cherry, and apple.
