Hi, I'm Mike Martini, 3rd generation winemaker for the Louis M. Martini Winery in the Napa Valley. Louis M. was my grandfather, I'm the M out of the Louis M., Michael. I want to talk to you today about removing cloudiness from homemade wines and this is initially leftover yeast from the fermentation and would be some grape pulp, grape skins, things like that are floating around in the wine and we're doing this on a small scale where you have a jug or a couple of jugs. The first thing I would recommend is you put it in your refrigerator and that, that will help to settle it down and you'll get a pretty hard pack of what we call leaves at the bottom of your bottle and, and then if you still have a little haziness or you want to clarify it a little bit further highly recommended coffee filters, how many different things you can do with coffee filters, this is amazing from cleaning the glasses to, but the growing point is that they're lint free and they're acid washed and so you won't get any flavor in the wine itself just make sure you clean your coffee pot first, try paper towels and it comes tasting like a paper towel so you don't want to do that. For the coffee filters use it like you were making coffee, don't boil it over, let it go through and then you know fill them back in to some other container, wash your bottle out and you put the clean line back into it. So that's Mike Martin, I'm how we remove haze from homemade wines, thank you for watching.
