1/17/2013 -- Is this tubing silicone or PVC?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's vinyl (PVC)
9/9/2011 -- How do we fill these wine bags?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The easiest way I have found is to simply siphon off from your carboy directly into the bag (remove the spigot first, of course). Use a racking cane, 5/16" siphon tubing and a bottle filler to 'git 'er done'. Links to those products provided below.
11/23/2010 -- I am a first time brewer and I am looking at equipment. i would like to use the 24" racking cane with the 3/8" hose and the 3/8" inch bottle filler. Are these parts compatible?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We like to use the 5/16" hose between the racking cane and the bottle filler. It's a tight fit, but the hose stretches somewhat and that is what you want. The 3/8" hose will work, but sometimes it will let a little air in, and you can lose your siphon that way.
5/17/2010 -- what is your phone number?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can be reached at (425) 355-8865Our toll free order is (800) 850-2739
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? . . .
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 . . .
3/30/2009 -- Is this clear hose tubing a special food grade tubing or is it just a standard tubing? Hate to run my beer through the wrong tubing.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's just common vinyl tubing, which is fine for food applications like beer and wine.
7/14/2008 -- i plan on using this for a blowoff tube and i was wondering if the hole in the middle of the stoppers fits this tube?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it will work just fine. It's a tight fit, but just push it thru as far as you can, and it will be good enough.
7/3/2008 -- how do you order more than a foot
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Just change the quantity from 1 to 3, for instance if you want to order 3 feet.
6/28/2008 -- how do you order more than 1 foot of hose
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Just change the quantity from "1" to whatever you need. It is sold per foot.
1/26/2008 -- I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?

4/19/2006 -- What is the outside diameter of the hosing? I am looking for tubing that has 3/8" outside diameter for a tight fit in the drilled holes of stoppers.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is just over 3/8" outside diameter; and makes a tight fit with the drilled stoppers.
12/8/2005 -- I am new to wine making and one of the most frustrating problems is racking it. I started with gallon jugs and that wasn't too bad, but I have moved up to using a 6 gallon carboy, and my hand pump system with a tee is not working very well, and it takes quite a while to siphon. My question is which method works the best from your experience? . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That sounds like an AWFUL system. You need this product, the Auto-Sipon. Here is a link to it:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/Product136This is a HUGE improvement over what you are doing. Also get about 4 feet of 5/16" ID tubing, and a Bottle Filler:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/Product88andhttp://www.nexternal.com/hombre . . .
9/22/2004 -- Okay, do you have to be able to perform magic in order to get the inside of a siphon hose dry? I know that if you don't keep your siphon hose clean it is the most likely to develop bacteria. Which in turn can do your body some damage, what my friends and I like to call, "screaming Apache butt piss." I clean my siphon hose exceptionally well . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Well...the only time this hose has to be sanitary is just before you use it. A little moisture, as long as it's clean, shouldn't be an issue. Before use, however, it makes sense to run a little sanitizer thru the tubing so that it is clean AND sanitized. After using, give it a rinse and forget it. Mornings with the wife should be reserved . . .
