Just got my copy in the mail today :cheers:

I've been nosing trough it this evening,and it is a little gem.
All I ever wanted to know or never came up with is there.
And a lot more... :study:

Clear and well-written recipe's,the basics and the advanced.
This should get anyone started with their own wines,beers and cordeals.

Well, I have to agree - it's an interesting little bible in it's own right.

Don't tell Andy, though, otherwise he'll be in for millions of sessions with various TV pundits (Oh - I see it's begun anyway :lol: ).

Well done, Andy, and tip your editor a wink for me :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've got it and like it too, also as far as I remember you had excellent reviews on Amazon so no need for trepidation ;-). (Besides, you should have good reviews, it's great value).

I just received my copy this morning. Thanks Andy :iconbiggrin: . I just had a quick flick-through and it looks great. It's going to take all my resolve to leave it until this evening to have a good read through.
