I made 4 batches of apple wine this fall, made them all the same about a
week apart. The first two and the last one are coming along grate. The third
has not has not begun to clear. Did I leave something out???

Mine did the same thing this year for some reason, been 2 months &
still have hazy wine (45 gal) with no signs of even trying to settle.
Started with one 5 gallon carbouy, filtered it, set the acid content &
it is now starting to clear. At this point I'm figuring to do the same
to the other 8. Had a similar problem in one last year in which I added
icingglass to try to clear it & it got worse so I filtered it & then it
cleared eventually. For the first time in about 10 years I added pectic
enzyme this year as a preventitive for this situation & got the worst
haze I've ever seen. I think I was better off before I started using
all these "additives" (yeast nutrient, enzyme). Good luck.
