Hey everyone just wanted to let you know there is a new e-book for Kindle that is all about wine making. Lots of great tips for newbies as well as the experienced.
See it here:

Well I didn't buy the book, but the first chapter is "Wine Kit Selection", so the book seems to be about making wine kits, thus not useful to some wine makers. It's only 99cents US so you won't go broke buying it.

FYI, you do NOT need a Kindle to read this. There are Kindle apps for most (all?) devices.

Creating an ID just to make one post pimping a book isn't good advertising, IMHO. I wouldn't buy it for that reason alone.

If you buy the right kit, it will have dried elderberries in it.

Sorry wasn't trying to retire on this book obviously at the cost of $0.99/book (most of which goes to Amazon) doesn't quite fuel my luxury yacht! I hope you don't treat all your new members like this.
I am trying to help people that may be interested in getting into making wine at home and are not sure of the commitment. I put a lot of time and effort creating this guide so that newbies could learn easy what is required of them. Additionally, experienced crafters may get some new tricks and tips. Surely anyone that can afford to take up making wine can afford $1.
Regardless, I will offer the book as a FREE download starting Jan 25 for those that wish to grab it.
I hope this gesture appeases the masses of this forum.

You can find it here:

Remember FREE as of Jan 25, 2015, but only for a limited time.

Got it, read it and thanks for the info. Couple of clarification questions: What do you mean by CRU on the preferred wine kits? and when you say you use the hydrometer to determine final SG of the primary must, do you mean that you will always go for 1.095 regardless of the amount of water needed?? You indicated that there were just a few actual wine kits producers and given the recent purchases, fewer. Do you have any info on how many separate producers there are?? The ones I know are RJS, Wine Kitz, Wine Expert, Mosti Mondiale, PakLab and ADvintage

First of all, I realize it takes effort to write these things down, format it and get it published on Amazon. I think the fact that you have this free today is commendable. And I certainly appreciate the time and effort you and everyone who shares their knowledge puts in to educating people.

I am curious about you're use of yeast.

In the introduction and in Chapter 3 you talk about controlling the fermentation by limiting the amount of yeast you add. Can you explain what exactly you are controlling? Are you just prolonging the lag phase before the yeast gets established? Would that have any benefit over, say, cold soaking for a couple of more days prior to adding yeast?
