I bottled a 1 gallon batch of cinnamon and clove metheglin about two weeks ago. The batch had been bulk ageing for about 4 months and I thought I would bottle age this batch since I had another gallon of the same bulk ageing. I had previously hit this batch with sulfites and sorbate before adding some like oak chips which were soaked in a campden solution for twenty four hours. I let it sit on the oak chips for two weeks racked and then added some isinglass to clarify. After 10 days I racked off the isinglass. I then soaked the corks for a day in a campden solution and sanitized the bottles as well. So after checking on the bottles today 1 out of the five looks like it dropped a lot of dust like sediment out of the solution. The rest are crystal clear. The storage room for the wines is fifty five degrees and had a slight up swing today to fifty nine. Is this an infection or maybe because of the tannins from the oak.

the dusty bottle was likely the last bottle which had the most yeasty sediments remaining.

That is what I was leaning towards. Its just the amount that suddenly appeared gave cause for concern. I think I will uncork and run through a filter. Hopefully that will do the trick.
