An informative, fun guide to making your own wine. Since 2007, it's estimated that one million North Americans make their own wine. Relatively inexpensive to make (a homemade bottle costs from $2 to $4), a bottle with your own label (and own grapes) is a fantasy even someone with modest aspirations can fulfill. Author Tim Patterson, an award-winning amateur winemaker, shows how it's possible for anyone to create a great wine. In Home Winemaking For Dummies, he discusses, from grape to bottle, the art of winemaking, including whether to make wine from a kit, concentrate, juice, or grapes; and how to determine what equipment is required; select the right yeast and figure out if any other additives are required; store, age, and test wine; and evaluate the wine.
