4/13/2010 -- I ordered the 7.5 Gallon Stainless Brewpot with installed stainless spigot. What diameter hose do I need to attach to spigot and does it have a barbed fitting?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The spigot kit does not come with a barbed fitting on the outlet side. We can certainly add one to your order, however, as well as the hose if you like. Please respond ASAP if you do.We have both stainless steel and brass barbed fittings that screw into the spigot. See product links below. Each barbed fitting has either a 3/8" or a 1/2" barb available. Personally, I like the stainless version with a 1/2" barb and 1/2" ID hose.
7/21/2009 -- I've gotta say, i love your site, whoever is the webmaster/designer deserves a pat on the back.(1) If i was to just buy a 3 gallon bottle (the kind you buy at a grocery store to dispense water at home) would i have to worry about flavors from one batch carrying over to another batch?(2) What size stopper do the one gallon jugs take? i'm sure that i could just buy jugs of cider and keep the bottles. that would also help save money on shipping
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Thank you. We work hard on our website, and it's nice to hear that it shows!1) Probably not. As long as it's food grade, it should be good unless you decide to make pickles in it or something silly like that. We can't speak for all plastic water jugs, of course. 3 gallons isn't very big, either. With the foaming that occurs during fermentation, don't plan on making more than about 2 to 2.5 gallons in one of those...2) OUR 1 gallon jugs take a #6.5 stopper. That is not to say that ALL 1 gallon jugs do... There are different sizes out there! If you want to use local jugs, it would be best to buy the jugs, and then measure the opening. Using that measurement, go the the Brewing Accessories catagory of our website, and choose the appropriate stopper for that style of jug.
8/30/2008 -- I am new to homebrewing so I need some help. I want to be able to brew enough at one time to accomodate a large group, 30-50 gallons. What equipment will I need to make this happen (brewing, storage, etc.) and how would I go about the ingredients.....all grain brewing or using the extracts? If you could suggest a good reference manual and also give me a ball park cost estimate that would be helpful too. Thanks for your help. Matt
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There are many different ways to approach this. One SINGLE batch vs multiple smaller ones, all-grain vs malt extracts, single large fermenter vs multiple smaller, cost vs low cost, bottling vs kegging etc etc.I'll address how I would do this. Please recognize that you may have other preferences.First off, I would prefer to serve 2 or 3 different beers than one. Variety is the spice of life, after all! Let's say for example that we make 2 batches of 15 gallons each. Maybe a pale ale and a red ale. Why not?This approach would allow you to brew a more manageable batch size of 15 gallons. You could also brew on different days, spreading out the work.If I were just starting out, I would brew with malt extract, probably dry malt extract, and some specialty grains. There are lots of great recipes out there for making whatever beer styles suits your group. All-grain brewing would be cheaper in the long run, but you could switch to all-grain later if you wanted to. It takes more equipment, but the cost of the ingredients is less. That is a trade-off for you to decide.I would also keg my beer. Bottling this volume would just be impractical (and tedious).For MY money (I'm a little cheap), here is a list of the hardware I would acquire. If you like to go 1st class, you may want to upgrade some items:2 20 Gal. Primary Fermenter w/Lid $67.90 6 5 Gallon Glass CarboyYes, add an airlock and stopper $166.20 1 Boilermaker® Brewing Pots - 10 Gallons to 55 Gallons20 Gallon; No, Brewpot and lid only $427.00 1 Bayou Banjo High Pressure Classic Cooker with 10" Cast Iron Burner $79.95 1 Super Wort Chiller,Outdoor(Pot Height: 24")On Preorder $79.95 1 Hydrometer (Triple Scale) $7.50 1 Hydrometer Test Jar $6.50 2 Fermometer $8.50 1 Complete Draft Kegging System - Ball LockQuad!; Used Cornelius Keg(s) $483.95 2 5 Gallon Cornelius Keg (used, Ball Lock ) $91.90 1 Auto-SiphonXL (1/2" dia.) $14.50 8 1/2" ID Siphon Hose Tubing $6.80 1 Stainless Steel Spoon 21" Long $12.95 1 Oxygenation System Kit $34.95 Subtotal $1,488.55 Order Discount - $148.86 Total $1,339.69 The beer ingredients of course, would be additional, but expect to spend about $160 or for 30 gallons of beer when brewing with extracts. As I say, you can cut that considerably if you later decide to go all-grain. A good reference manual would be "The New Complete Joy of Homebrewing. An excellent book. Here is a link to that product:http://store.homebrewheaven.com/Product723

Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is 5/8" OD (1/16" wall thickness).
7/19/2004 -- What size hose do you use with this larger cane?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You would need 7/16" or 1/2" ID tubing to use this item. We have now added the 1/2" hose to the website.
