    Default What is the time frame to rack must off of yeast sediment?

    I have a Chablis Mead that has been fermenting since 7/21/06. I racked it on the 7/28 due to the high concentration of sediment. It has now settled down nicely (1-2 bubbles per minute) and is very clear. I would like to let it set another month, however there is about 1 inch of yeast sediment. Should I rack again now or can I leave it on the sediment for the month with out effecting the taste much?
    I also have a sparking Gingermead fermenting. I added six pounds of fresh Raspberries (mashed) The recipe called for an open fermentation for 7 days max & then rack to a close fermentation. I strain the fruit as best as possible, but can see at least a inch of raspberry parts. It still has a very active fermentaion going. Is it safe to let it complete this cycle of fermentation with the fruit parts in the carboy or do I need to rack it again now?
