The Quiet Stage

Now that you have added the MLF bacteria, there's not much to do.  Make sure your airlock has the right amount of water, monitor the room temperature, and that's about it.   I stir my wine every few weeks in this stage.  You will test in about a month for malic acid depletion.  When your malic is down somewhat, and your wine is stable, you can then sulfite it and add oak chips or add it to your barrel.
