I've been surprised and disappointed in the how-to books I've found on winemaking so far. I'm wondering whether there is one out there that really lays out the basics in an organized fashion and acknowledges that kits are where many of us start.
I've read portions of "The Joy of Home Wine Making" (nearly worthless if you want to make grape wine), Iverson's "Home Winemaking Step by Step" (not as organized as its title sounds and virtually mum on kits) and "The Way to Make Wine" by Warrick (easily the best but still not written with kits in mind). I just started brewing beer in January and could name at least three homebrewing books (Palmer, Papazian and Dummies) that are way more useful for beginners than anything I've seen on wine.
Anyone know of a good basic book that includes kit info?
