    Mistakes!!!
    Hi guys, newbie here, again! I don't know why I did it but I did. I meant to rack off my wine before adding the stabiliser and then stirring with my de-gassing wand but for some reason I didn't rack it even though I had the clean demijohn ready. By the time I realised I had stirred up the yeast cake but luckily not the oak chips. I then racked it off into the clean demijohn.
    I'm going to keep de-gassing over the next day or so. Will it be ok? I'm guessing it might just take a bit longer to clear? I could always rack it off again?
    What would you guys recommend?
    Cheers
    Glen

    I wouldn't bother de-gassing. I'd just slap myself on the wrist and leave it alone for a couple of weeks in a cool dark place.

    By that time, the sediment should have settled so you can rack it into a second vessel and then go through the procedure that you should have done in the first place.

    Yeah I think that's what I'm going to do Dutto, it's started to settle again so hopefully no harm done.
    I still can't believe I did it though.

    The hardest bit will be when you have to confess to doing it again!
