I have now decided to try my hand at some wine making as SHMBO decided she would also like to enjoy the fruits (haha) of my hobby.
In the instructions for the kit I received (White Riesling) I was told to leave the must on the gross lees for one week and secondary for two weeks before degassing/fining. The instructions also mentioned that the gravity should be around .996 after secondary. Well I'm about a little over a week into secondary and my gravity had already reached it's target, so my question now is - should I follow the same rules for beer, let the yeast "clean up" byproducts etc. Or is it okay to degass and begin the fining process?
