Tom, thanks for the post. That is the text I used to learn with when I started. I need to drag out my old laptop and see if I still have all of the pages like that saved on it. I had quite a few different recipe and instruction pages like that saved.

Yup, you are correct. I have been looking through the admin panel where it used to be. Couldn't find it there. Figured they did away with it. There they go making this thing easier to use and it confuses me even more.

I send an e-mail to Michiel Pesgens (Mipeman) a few days ago as the site you are referring to (geocities) is closing down later this year.

I hope he is notified and moves his book and wine-calculator to another site as soon as possible. In the meantime download the info the site offers before it is gone.

There is another book at Geocities, the one from Lum Eisenmann:
http://www.geocities.com/lumeisenman/contents.html

I also send and e-mail to Lum, but the mail bounced.
So I do hope that anyone can contact these guys and notify them that their sites will be gone in a few months.

It would be a shame if the invaluable information, these guys have provided us with, would be lost.

At a first glance this appears to be quite an informative book.i will go in detail and give a more knowledgeable feedback.

The links didn't work for me. I'm reading everything I can about wine making without trying to break my bank, which right now has no reserves.

Thanks all. That ought to keep me busy reading for awhile. I'm throwing myself full fledged into this. I have 5 to 7 acres of land that I want to eventually slowly over time plant with grape vines that will grow in West Central Indiana (can't afford to plant quickly).
