DEFALCO'S NEWS

FRESH GREEN HOPS!

We're sending out the Bat Signal that we are hoping to receive our annual shipment of fresh, green undried hop flowers next week! Should be receiving 30 lbs. each of Centennial & Cascades, which at 6 oz. per bag will not be around for long! We'll let you know when we have more specific details.

WHAT'S ON TAP AT STELLA LINK LOCATION THIS SATURDAY!

Don't forget, our free beginner beer making session starts this Saturday at 11:00. This will be a partial mash beer making demo that should take around 2-3 hours to complete. It is a great way for you and your new brewing friends to learn what is involved in the hobby and see the equipment involved...and maybe even sample a beer or two. No sign up required and the price is right!

THE GRAINFATHER BREWING SYSTEM HAS ARRIVED!


The Grainfather takes the best brewing practices from craft breweries and fits them into a simple to use, all in one system to ensure everyone can brew a professional craft beer at home, no matter their brewing experience.  This an all-grain brewing system that will yield 5 -6 gallons.  The system is very compact with built-in pump, heat coils, thermostat, brain, counter-flow wort chiller, etc.  It is very easy to use and easy to clean.  For more information, go to the Grainfather website.  These are selling for $890.

FALL BREWING CLASSES NOW OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT!!!

You can now sign up for our popular fall homebrewing classes!  These classes tend to fill up quickly, so you would be advised to act quickly if you are interested.  The Early Fall classes begin Tuesday, September 8th.  Late Fall classes begin Tuesday, October 20th.  We have been offering these classes for about 25 years now, but they have become amazingly popular in the last seven or eight years.  The classes run five consecutive Tuesday evenings beginning at 7 pm.  We brew an intermediate batch the first evening, bottle it the second evening, taste it along with 12 - 14 ales of the world the third evening, taste it again along with 9 - 10 lagers of the world the fourth evening (followed by a field trip to a local craft brewery), and lastly drink (as opposed to "taste") it the fifth evening as we brew an all-grain, scratch recipe.  Lots of fun, lots of beer education!

COOL-BREWING FERMENTATION COOLER!

Just arrived!  The Cool-Brewing Fermentation Cooler!  Simply place your fermenter into the Cool-Brewing Fermentation Cooler, along with a few frozen plastic bottles of water, and away you go!  This quality-built fermentation cooler is insulated, completely sealable and specifically designed to control fermentation temperatures while your homemade wine, beer, cider or mead ferments away!.  Click here for more details!

PINK MOSCATO HAS ARRIVED!


Our shipment of World Vineyard Pink Moscato has arrived!  Description: "Light and refreshing on the palate with flavors of fresh strawberry, raspberry and cherry."  This is available only for a short time and is limited to our stock on hand!  At $89.99, these will not be around long!  Click here for more details.

GRAB LA FORZA WHILE YOU CAN!

The latest addition to the Eclipse line, La Forza, is a limited release kit available while supplies last.  A bold full-bodied red wine with a generous amount of oak flavor and finish. Deep ruby color with aromas of plum, smoke and spice. Rich flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, and cedar with lingering oak and a dry, firm, long finish.  Labels are included.  Click Here!

OVERSTOCK SALE ON BARLEYCRUSHERS!

We find ourselves a little overstocked on BarleyCrusher Grain Mills.  Rather than waiting around for these to sell down to normal stock levels on their own, we've decided to lop $20 off the regular retail price to prod them along!  Our loss is your gain, so if you've been toying around with the idea of owning your own mill, now is the time to act.  Once our stock levels drop to more acceptable levels, we'll drop the sale!  Click here for more details!

FEATURED RECIPES FOR SEPTEMBER

Fall is finally creeping in, step by step.  While it may not be "cool," it's not as heinously hot & sticky as the summer.  Hence, we are offering special pricing three Scottish Ale Kits. Choose from:
Scottish 80/Shilling Ale
Scottish 110/Shilling Ale
Scottish Wee Heavy Barleywine

We are also offering a $2 discount on a featured Dog Day Recipe Kit (our Eight Liter/Two Gallon Mr. Beer Size Kit).  This month we are featuring:
Dog Day Schnauzerfest (Octoberfest)

CLEARANCE SALE ON SELECTED COOPER'S MALT EXTRACT KITS!

As sales of canned malt extract continue to drop, we are obliged to discontinue more of these old workhorses.  Our loss is your gain.  We are pricing the following at $15.99 ($6 off regular price0:

Cooper's Original Lager
Cooper's Original Real Ale
Cooper's Classic Dark Ale
Cooper's International Australian Pale Ale

 

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!
