Posted in thread: Home Winemaking Book? on 11-21-2016 at 10:01 PM
I'd consider "The Way to Make Wine" by Warrick or "Techniques in Home Winemaking" by Pambianchi
to be the wine equivalents to "How to Brew" by Palmer. But these are really focused on making
wine from ...

I'm sure any type of noble hop like crystal or liberty would be great. At 15 IBUs you're really
not picking up much hop character, but still, I'd probably avoid any of the 'C' American
hops.And yeah, ...

That is a nice looking beverage!! Nice work.Thanks! It took me more attempts than it probably

I've been brewing for a little over 5 years now. Started with extract, moved to partial mash
