Initial laboratory space, equipment, and reagents lists are included for anyone just setting up a wine lab. The guide concludes with key terms, conversions and formulas.
I’ve made wine since 2005 in different counties around the globe, working in labs big and tiny, and each one has a binder of wine lab procedures similar to this guide. However, when I was helping some friends establish a new wine lab and searched to find a collection of procedures like those the binders I have used time and time again, only textbooks, chemical formulas, and wine making guides could be found on the internet. So, I created this. I hope it helps others in similar need.
