Racked the last off the gross lees

Erwin and I went out and racked the last of the wine off the gross lees. We had about 20 gallons of gross lees leftover from last Friday. We let it settle over the weekend, and we got about three gallons more wine. Good for topping.

We had inoculated everything with Enoferm Alpha last week. The cellar is cooling down, so we put a 100W light bulb under the barrels and 3 gallon carboy. We also put blankets over the top. We want to warm up the wine a little until the MLF is finished. Here are some pictures:
