Step 3: Racking

5 days later, siphon from the primary fermenter into the sanitized carboy (this is called racking). When racking, try to leave all the sludge at the bottom and then discard it.

Rack again 1 month later (2nd racking) and add 1/2 tsp of yeast nutrient.

Rack again 1 month later (3rd racking) and add 2 tsp of yeast nutrient.

5 days after the 3rd racking, add 15g of sparkolloid powder dissolved in 2 1/4 cups of water. Stir vigorously.
The sparkolloid powder is a clearing agent that will turn the contents of your carboy from cloudy to crystal clear.
