DEFALCO'S NEWS

LEMONDROP HOPS - LIMITED SUPPLY!

We managed to get our hands on a limited supply of the highly sought-after Lemondrop hops!  Notes of Lemon, Orange, grapefruit, citrus, blackberry, super cascade, menthol, pine, licorice, & peppermint. While supplies last (which, barring a miracle, won't be long!).  Get'em!  Lemondrop hops

ANOTHER NEW HOP VARIETY: AZACCA

We just received our first shipment of Azacca hops.  Here's the description: "Intense tropical fruit profile, with sustained impressions of apricot and very ripe mango and notes of pears, apples and pine throughout. Excellent aromatic qualities make Azacca™ a go-to hop for late and dry hop additions in a variety of styles, although its high myrcene fraction has already made it a favorite of IPA brewers."

PRE-ORDER YOUR WINEXPERT LIMITED RELEASES NOW!

We are accepting pre-orders for Winexpert's seasonal limited releases through June 6th.  If like smooth dessert wines, you will definitely want in on some or all of these releases!  This is what's in store for the fall:
CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY DESSERT WINE (PORT) - Back by popular demand this wine is bursting with rich, intense flavors and aromas. The traditional Port character of warm, rounded cherries and plums is supported by a racy zing of bright raspberry.
CHOCOLATE ORANGE DESSERT WINE (PORT)
- This intensely flavored Port-style dessert wine is full-bodied and rich, with complex aromas of bittersweet dark chocolate, thick with ripe orange and marmalade flavors.
CHOCOLATE SALTED CARAMEL DESSERT WINE (PORT) - New this year, this perfectly indulgent dessert wine is both sweet and luxurious. The velvety decadence of chocolate blends beautifully with rich, salted caramel and is sure to become a new favorite.

Please note these kits are full-strength kits, meaning you do not add any water to them.  They produces 3 gallons, not six gallons as most of the wine kits do.  So, if your home winemaking equipment is set up for 6 gallons, you will need to order two kits to fill the 6 gallon secondary fermenter, or purchase a 3 gallon carboy.

In addition, they are offering a special World Vineyard (Six Gallon) Kit:

WORLD VINEYARD PINK MUSCAT - Light and refreshing on the palate with flavors of fresh strawberry, raspberry and cherry.

 

FEATURED RECIPES FOR MAY

With the heat of summer nigh upon us, we have opted to go with some lager recipes for our featured Basic Brew Kits this month.  You can still ferment these with a good clean ale yeast strain & yield good results, if you don't have the facilities or patience to cool ferment & cold store these beers.  Choose from:
MayBock
Similar To The Lager
Czech Pilsner

JUST ARRIVED!. . . WORLD VINEYARD 1.65 LITER WINE KITS (FOR ONE GALLON OF WINE)

Interested in learning to make great wine, but tight on space &/or budget?  One gallon, 5 bottle wine kit is the perfect started size for consumers wanting to try their hand at winemaking with a minimal investment of money & space.  The good folks at Winexpert are releasing the following kits later this month:

World Vineyard Moscato 1.65L Wine Kit (California)
World Vineyard Chardonnay 1.65L Wine Kit (Australia)
World Vineyard Pinot Grigio 1.65L Wine Kit (Italy)
World Vineyard Pinot Noir 1.65L Wine Kit (California)
World Vineyard Merlot 1.65L Wine Kit (Chile)
World Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1.65L Wine Kit (California)

Retail Price for the kits will be $27.99.  These will work very well with our standard One Gallon Winemaking Kit, but we anticipate releasing our own kit specifically designed to go with these WV kits.

 

HOP RHIZOMES ARE HERE!

We've ordered hop rhizomes from the Pacific Northwest and they have arrived!  This year we've selected thirteen different varieties from which to choose: Cascades, Centennial, Chinook, Crystal, Kent Goldings, Mt. Hood, Northern Brewer, Perle, Sorachi Ace, Sterling, Tettnanger, Willamette, Zeus.  You might consider trying your hand at hop farming!

SUPER DEAL ON BOTTLE CAPS!

We have purchased nearly a third of a million Ft. Bend Brewing Company bottle caps and are offering these at half the going price for our regular oxygen-scavenging caps: $2.99 per canful (180 - 200 caps)!  Because we have so many, we are offering them in bulk for even cheaper pricing: $19.99 for 10 canfuls (about 2,000 caps).  If the color of the bottle cap is no big deal to you, save 50% or more off your cap costs!

DON'T FORGET OUR CLEAR LAKE STORE IS OPEN!

The address is: 16532 Sea Lark, Houston TX 77062.  Phone (281) 486-1141. Our hours are:

Monday: Closed
Tuesday - Friday: 11 - 7
Saturday: 10 - 5
Sunday: 12 - 4

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!
