However, I would not recommend this book to a beginner. While the pages are laid our clear and simple, the instructions were not detailed enough for my partner and I. With the help of another book we were able to use recipes in this book to have success in wine making, but I found this book was not instructional enough for all our needs and questions.
Another strange aspect of the book was that all the recipes are for 3.8 L "jugs" rather than the typical 19 to 57 L carboy. We ended up doing a lot of math with this book, because we had to convert all the measurements to the standard wine making equipment we had purchased.
While I think this book will be a great tool for the future as we learn more about wine making, I would not suggest it for beginners. BUT, if you're experienced and eager to experiment, this book is for you!
The only thing I wish they had more info on was alternatives to chemicals used in their recipes in the wine/mead making process.
