I'm a home brewer whom has done (27) 5 gallon batches of beer over the last few years. Am completing a hobby tour of every home brew supply store in South and Central Texas this year, including San Antonio, Austin and Dallas. While all share similar inventories and layouts such as Austin Home Brew, Home Brew Party in San Antonio, Wine Makers Toy Store & Dallas Home Brew which I visited yesterday, I'd have to say that DeFalco's is most certainly one of the very best.
Typical of all mentioned they do have a great selection of grains that they will mill on demand, liquid and dry yeasts of every type, but over and above the call of duty they have top shelf dry yeast, in particular Mangrove Jack's (made in the UK) from New Zealand. Half sold out of course as home brewers are learning about that new one and how robust it is.
Very happy with the cost of my purchase of their in house kit, cleaners that beat mail order prices and the service was superb. ...
