comment Wine Kit (extract) Secondary
I don't have an answer to your question, but that's a very short time for wine fermentation. My wines have a 2 or 3 week primary fermentation, and a secondary fermentation lasting some months. I never add clarifying or stabilizing agents, as time and patience takes care of that for me.

comment I forgot to put water in the airlock! What do I do now?
After seven days of fermentation, there's nothing left for the yeast to consume. Adding sulphite to knock back wild yeast activity will have no effect, because the yeast are finished.

comment How can I filter out excess cream (trub) before bottling?
Is the "cream" floating on the top of beer? On the bottom? Throughout? I suspect it's just krausen, but it's hard to know for sure without a more complete description. If it krausen, just wait a week or two more and it'll drop the bottom.

comment Cleaning stainless steel
You can get a mirror finish on stainless steel with sand paper. Use wet/dry paper, and lubricate with water. You'd have to start with a coarse grit (60? 100? Depends on what size holes the sand-blasting made), and move to progressively finer grits, 200, 400, 800, etc. ending around 2000 grit. If you stop at 400 or 800, you'll get a satin finish instead. It's a lot of work. You could probably use a power tool of some sort for the outside of the pot, but I can't imagine how to do this for the inside.

comment Mash & Sparge Calculation
10% per hour is just a rough guideline. The actual rate is dependent on many things, such as the shape of your kettle and the vigour of the boil. You'll want to characterize your setup by measuring the volume pre- and post-boil. Once you know the boil-off rate for your equipment, use that number next time. (I'm suspicious that % per hour is the wrong way to measure evaporation. It suggests that a smaller volume evaporates less than a larger one, which can't be right. Gallons per hour makes more sense, but all the calculators use % per hour...)
