4/4/2013 -- Just placed an order, but will the spigot fit into a 1.5" opening to dispense? I have wine purses that are used to dispense the wine, but my openings are 1.5" (initially to fit boxed wine spigots). These look a bit larger. Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Have never heard of a "wine purse" but these should fit just fine. Lots of customers use them with wine boxes.
7/5/2012 -- I would like 8 of these how, what would be the shipping charges to New Zealand?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Using USPS Priority Mail International, the shipping charge would be $32.50 USD
7/3/2012 -- any idea if these will hold a carbonated beverage?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They may well hold the beverage, but it would certainly go flat if not drunk shortly after.
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.
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
1/5/2010 -- Are you able to get any wine bottles that are bigger than the 1.5 L? Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. That is the largest we have available. We do have Wine Waiter type systems however that hold about 5.5 liters. They work quite well. Actually, so do Party Pigs that hold about 2.2 gallons (over 8 liters).
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?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have an actual brick-and-mortar store in Everett, WA. People actually walk in and buy stuff!Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9109 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Here is a video of our shop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1a5fKvv8XIHeck, you can actually call us on the phone, too! It's 425-355-8865. A person will actually answer as long as it's business hours!
3/22/2005 -- About filling the bags, bags are opaque so you can not see the air bubble left in the bag. will an accurate 5.5 liter leave the right amount of air. laying on flat surface, spout up seem to be best way to fill. some sort of a fill mark would be good to have. Thanks, any info you could send would be appreciated.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I agree. Some sort of indicator would be nice, but for now it doesn't exist. Fill it up, and you have 5.5 liters (or so).
10/21/2004 -- What is the material used for these bags ? What are they worth, in terms of permability and porosity ? What do they compare with in terms of quality ? How can they be sanitized for multiple use ?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is a plastic lined mylar, just like you buy boxed wines, i.e. "bag-in-box". As you might expect, they are not as good as glass wine bottles, but they ARE convenient! In use, I have noticed no wine degradation due to permeability, etc., however I have not used them for long term storage of my best wine, either. They can be sanitized by removing the spigot, and filling with Iodophor (or similar sanitizer).
9/19/2004 -- i got one of your 5.5 wine bags do u sell box's for them and do i need a spigot for this thank u
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, we don't sell the boxes for them. It is easy to find a similar box, and just cut a hole, however. Our varietal wine kit boxes are just about right for this. No, you don't need a spigot. It is on the bag!
4/22/2004 -- We ordered some 5.5 wine bags. they where here fast but with no instructions on how to fill them. Can you e-mail me this infomation, we are ready to bottle.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There really are no instructions for these. You just pry off the brown part of the spigot, fill and replace. Very easy.
4/5/2004 -- Looking for the best box.What is your recommendation for a suitable box dimension for your 5.5 Liter bag?What is the dimension for the 5.5 liter?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The bag itself measures 12 1/2" by 15" (when flat). A box that is slightly smaller than that should work just fine.
1/18/2004 -- how does this compare to the "wine on tap" system of bag storage? Will this bag protect the wine for a similar amount of time? What is the advantage of the WOT system that makes it worth the cost?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is really the same thing, except that you will have to find a suitable (cardboard) box or some other container to hold the bag. You will also need to put a hole into the container so that the spigot will protrude thru it.Yes, it will protect the wine in exactly the same way.
11/18/2003 -- Does this bag come with the box to protect it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, it doesn't. You can use any cardboard box, however.
9/18/2003 -- who is the manufacture of this bag?if i would buy 20 or more can i get a better price? and better shipping rate to canton ohio?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We're not sure who manufactures this bag. We buy from a distributor.We just put it volume pricing on these, so the single price is $2.95 but if you order 12 or more, they go for $2.50 ea.We also changed the shipping weight on these, so the shipping rate will be better next time you log in.
