Make Great Wine Without Spending a Fortune on Equipment

Whether you have a cellar stocked with homemade vintages or are a recent convert to the rewards of home winemaking, you are likely to need some new equipment. The Homebuilt Winery provides complete building plans for 43 winemaking projects, pieces that facilitate the entire process of turning grapes into wine — from crushing and destemming to bottling and labeling. Each project includes thorough step-by-step instructions, building diagrams, an illustration of the completed piece, and instructions for use.

A home winemaker and experienced builder himself, Steve Hughes understands every step in the winemaking process and has designed projects that are useful and durable, yet easy to build with only basic carpentry skills and materials. Using his building plans, you can do anything from replacing a few worn pieces to building an entire home winery.

Review:

"This isn't so much about technique, formula, or protocol, but about building — literally — a winery in your home, right down to installing drywall and finishing a floor for the chosen area, which can be the garage, basement, or an empty-nest bedroom. Hughes, a building designer, contractor, and winemaker, starts with equipment lists so beginners can make up to 30 gallons per year, including everything from the eight-gallon fermenter to felt-tip marker. A one-to-five — bottle scale signals the degree of difficulty for each project. The reader is hand-held from backyard grape growing to glass tipping, so this might be suitable for beginning winemakers but not beginning woodworkers. Some knowledge of the latter craft and its tools are pretty much a prerequisite for those considering home vinting the Hughes way, which is also the frugal way. Additional steps, with plenty of diagrams, show how to make white wines into sparkling ones, how to build your own wine rack, and even how to construct the 'winedirondack'' chair for sipping the fermented fruits of one's labors.

Synopsis:

Here is all the information you need to set up a home winery and build all of the basic equipment -- for just a fraction of the cost of store-bought. Steve Hughes includes building plans and step-by-step instructions for more than 30 winemaking essentials, including a crusher, a de-stemmer, presses, pumps, and a bottle filler. He even offers a range of options for cellar racking. Along the way, Hughes leads readers through the entire process of winemaking--how to use the equipment, how to set up a winery, the best ways to store and analyze wine, and the best ways to filter, bottle, cork, and label. With this guide, you'll have everything you need to affordably enjoy delicious, high-quality, homemade wine.
