Red wine finings 2

I'm sure an extra two hours won't make a great deal of difference to the wine. I nearly forgot to put the Chitosan (the second half of the fining mixture) in, but remembered a few minutes ago and did it just before 2.30pm.

According to the instructions it should now take between 3 and 7 days for the wine to clear, at which point it should be bottled. Judging by my experiences with it so far, I'm expecting it to be nearer 7 days than 3, which suits me as I'm busy at the start of the week.

I've also just checked my cider, which seems to be steeping quite nicely. I'll probably move onto stage 2 of that process next Tuesday or Wednesday.
