Boys have been busy

Well Brian and Lee have been busy developing their our “Crafted Beer” Recipes. And I must say they are really good !

Brian made a Hefeweizen Style base beer but added Apricot flavoring. Apricot is not overpowering. Good job Brian !
Lee made a Light Wheat Style base beer. And being a big fan of watermelon, he added Watermelon flavoring to his. What a suprise-very light and yet not a  overpowering watermelon taste. Just perfect Lee !
Can hardly wait for the warm summer days to enjoy both these creations on my deck with bbq going !
That is the fun of crafting your own beer, you can experiment with different flavorings and additives to make it your own! So go big on experimenting-never know what you will come up with !

Summer is Coming

It seems that mother nature is struggling this year. I sure hope for all our sake she find her happy place soon. My prayers to all those afflicted with the flood, tornadoes and bad weather.
We have been busy over the winter here at the store. Adding more inventory, learning new processes in both the beer and wine crafting. Has been fun and interesting. We even finished the new Brewing Classroom. And started up a new “Brew Club”. And am planning for our first summer “Wine Club” meeting.If you planning any type of gathering this summer now is the time to make your wine or beer. Not sure how much you need- please  read the post “Planning for Event”, it will give you approximate calculation for the size of your event.

Sugar and Calories in Wine

Many people are health conscious these days and like to watch the sugar and calorie intact. A while back I had a patron ask me about this, so after researching, this is what I found.

Red Wine:
Size: 750 ml Bottle (standard size bottle)
Approx. 625 Calories
Approx. 20 grams Carbohydrates
Approx. 5 grams Sugar
Single Size of Red Wine
Single Serving is considered to be 5 oz.
Approx. 125 Calories
Approx. 4 grams Carbohydrates
Approx. 1 gram sugar

White Wine:
Size: 750 ml Bottle (standard size bottle)
Approx. 610 Calories
Approx. 20 grams Carbohydrates
Approx. 7.5 grams Sugar
Single Size of White Wine
Single Serving is considered to be 5 oz.
Approx. 125 Calories
Approx.. 4 grams Carbohydrates
Approx. 1.5 grams Sugar

Please keep in mind that these are only approximate calculation. The sweeter the wine the more the numbers will go up. The most popular lately is the fruity sweet styles-they will be higher in all areas.
Hope this helps you if you are watching the numbers. Me, nah, I just enjoy a good wine every now and then and figure I just have to spent more time on the tread mill !

Happy Sipping
