DEFALCO'S NEWS

SUPER SALE ON WINE YEAST!

We have a couple dozen packages of recently expired Vintner's Harvest CY-17 Wine Yeast.  These are 8 gram packages that consist of active dried wine yeast & some nutrients.  We just discovered that they had surpassed their "best before" date, and decided to make a batch of mead with them.  We re-hydrated the yeast by tossing four packages in a cup of lukewarm water. Within 10 - 15 minutes it was practically exploding out of the cup!  This yeast is still very active!  But, since we need to move these, we are drastically discounting them while we await the replacements.  While supplies last: 49¢ per package! That's a 75% discount!  Here's the description for this strain:
"The definitive dessert wine strain:  CY17 is a delicate strain and a slow fermenter but if treated with respect it will produce luxuriously rich aromatic wines full of fruit character.  It also produces elevated levels of glycerol enhancing wine sweetness and body.  It will add depth and complexity to the sweetness of White Zinfandel,  Sauvignon Blanc, with its massive acidity to balance is a natural fit.  So are dessert wines such as late harvest Muscat, Riesling or a Port.."

NEW FOR 2015: UPGRADED WINE & BEER MAKING KITS!

We've been mulling upgrading our basic wine & beer making kits for a while now.  At the end of December, we decided to pull the trigger.  Here's the skinny: on our 5 Gallon Concentrate & Fresh Fruit and 6 Gallon Boxed Wine Winemaking Kits, we have replaced the standard racking cane with an Auto-Siphon and added both a Bottle Filler & a Bottle Brush.  On our Basic Single Stage & Double Stage Beer Kits, we have merely replaced the standard racking cane with an Auto-Siphon.  Over the past number of years,  we have found the Auto-Siphon to be enormously popular, so we thought the time was right to make these upgrades.  Of course, we've adjusted the price of the kits to reflect these upgrades, but we have given you the option to downgrade from the Auto-Siphon to the standard racking cane and save the difference in the price.  We honestly do not expect to have a lot of takers on this offer, but you never know. . . Anyway, we think you will appreciate the upgrade.

SWEET DEAL ON RECYCLED KARBACH BOMBERS!

We have just come into 100 cases of rinsed, unlabeled Karbach 22 oz. bombers.  These were short-fill, tap room, etc. bottles that they rinsed and saved.  Now you can get these for $7.99 per case, half the price of new 22 oz. bottles.  While supplies last!  Click here!

P.S. By the way, the sign on the photo has been "photoshop-ed".  Any signage must comply with local civic association deed restrictions, so we're flying under the radar now with an indoor banner by one of our windows and a re-purposed banner outside.  One more hurdle to clear!
