Techniques in Home Winemaking
An easy-to-use, clearly-illustrated, and comprehensive guide for beginners and advanced winemakers looking for the latest techniques in premium wine production. From choosing raw material - concentrate, juice, or grapes - to bottling, this book provides detailed instructions on selecting and using equipment, determining the best material for specific wine styles, and analyzing wine to monitor and control quality. The troubleshooting guide is a new feature that provides solutions to potential winemaking problems and tips on prevention. Also included are step-by-step instructions for making Pinot Noir, traditional-method sparkling wine, Port, and Icewine-style wines; microbial stabilization and membrane filtration; barrel reconditioning; and building a cellar. All aspects in this new edition of "Techniques in Home Winemaking" have been completely updated and expanded by an additional 200 pages.
Being fairly new to wine & beer home brewing, I was looking for help answering questions, giving tips, etc. While it seems to be geared for larger brewers than I, It is not difficult to mentally convert the information to fit my needs.
