What is the best way to cold settle my white juices? How do I sample for Brettanomyces? What’s the best procedure to clean or store a used barrel? How do I care for the winery pump? My wine is too astringent - what do I do? When can I skip filtering my wine? When will it re-ferment and push the corks? How do I best store and ship my bottled wine?

Expert answers to these and further questions that arise during winemaking can be found in this convenient reference book. Arranged in practical question and answer format, Winemaking problems solved provides brief, quickly accessible solutions to more than one hundred issues of frequent concern to winemaking professionals.
