Most wines will clear naturally given time, I had a damson wine that didn't and finings had no effect, I used pectolase in the end, even though there was plenty at start, but the plums were well boiled so I put it down to that.

This has cleared nicely - way ahead of the raisin tea wine I made. I've moved it into bottling position for tomorrow night. Had a little taste - very nice !

6 bottles of loveliness - really impressed with the taste and body of this one.

Will most definitely do this one again.

Really impressed with those bottle tops too. Look a bit ugly when recycled for 2nd time but do the job

Great with collar when first used and good for gifting.

Opened a bottle of this tonight. Very nice - medium fruity wine.
I'm definitely finding that with raisin based wines they are best left a good few months before supping as unlike a straight wow they do definitely improve with age.

To be honest as i am not giving my stuff away i decided to cut the collar off and just use the caps which i have done many times and they still seal 100%.

They are indeed a good buy - much easier than corks for sure

I have started leaving the collars on when using again. The lid slides up nicely and they look fine. Just make sure I dunk the whole collar and top etc in Starsan as part of the process.
