Default Wine making book?

Hello,

My search-fu sucks. Looking for a good book about making wine at home.

Thanks,
iheartbeer

I have a few books but they can't touch a couple of selections offered online. You don't say what kind of wine you want to make but if country wines are your style, you can't beat Jack Keller's website. If you want to make grape wine, try The Home Winemakers Manual by Lum Eisenman

I always thought it was the same for all. I guess i want to learn the difference. I would like to make some strawberry wine and understand what is needed.

Thanks

"From Vines to Wines" is a good book. I forget the author.

There are lots of grape winemaking books, but fewer country winemaking books.

"The complete handbook of winemaking" has some good info for country winemaking, and I see it at every winemaking and homebrewing shop i've ever been to.

Thanks for the reply.

I guess I should ask this question. The process it takes to make grape wine, is it the same as making strawberry wine? Like step to step?

Also cheese is this the book. Amazon book link

That's the book. I have made grape wine, but not country wine, yet. So, no comment on the differences.

"The Joy of Home Winemaking" by Terry Garey. She starts you off with Welch's and yeast and walks you all the way through what you need to know for some really good wines. An easy read and I like her oddball sense of humor. Plus she's got almost as many unusual country wine recipes as Jack Keller. Anybody who can make potato-mint wine is either crazy or a homebrewing genius.
