mustapha supas You can use a balloon with a pinhole. Anything that lets gas out and keeps the bugs from coming in.

Racking off is a lot easier with a syphon tube

Couldn't you strain out the sediment with a coffee filter or cloth strainer?

I agree completely! You cannot call something ‘wine’ if it is not brewed using the base ingredient only; just look at grape wine (normal wine), rice wine (sake) and barley wine (Belgian beer). None of which use sugar as an additive medium for producing alcohol. I don’t know what one would call this, but it is certainly not wine!
