Ok, I'm a few days late with Day 14's post but I won't have a problem remembering what we did. For starters, it was an easy process. Then there was the interesting fermentation gasses. :-) The yeasty-winey smell was expected and doesn't perfume the air until you take the top off.

Anyway, Day 14–halfway there!–means it's time to add the stabilizer and clarifier. The mixture in the tank was golden and pretty cloudy, like apple cider.

After sanitizing the tools, I took off the top and added a plastic cone to the center. Stir in a couple of packages, then replace cover.

For the next 3 days, I unlocked the container from the base and rotated it a couple of times. This releases any sediment that accumulates on the walls. So far, so good. Can't wait until it looks like wine.
