Day 4 and 5 of Winemaking

There isn’t much to watch during these first five days. On days 3 and 4 you could set a clock to the bubbles in the econolock. Every three seconds there were bubbles. Fermentation was taking place. On day 5 however the three second pattern stopped. There were still bubbles ranging at different times from every five to eight seconds. On day 6 there were no more bubbles present. I took a reading of the specific gravity at 0.992. It was time to rack the wine from the primary fermenter to a carboy. We tasted the wine and thought that it needed some time to rest. There were some hints of a typical Cabernet Sauvignon nose and taste. The wine will rest in the carboy for two more weeks.
