I would have strained it though fine muslin before putting into the demi-john.
I don't know about plastic demi-johns - I used glass ones with plastic fermentation locks/bubble trap with a little of the camden tablet solution in it..
The best book I know for home made wines is Drink Your Own Garden by Judith Glover - very clear explanation of simple techniques which can be adapted to make any wine, together with good illustrations of equipment. Available via Amazon
