7/24/2012 -- Are these grains fully modified? thank you
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes! Not a problem. This grain has excellent extract efficiency, and is used by most west coast breweries large and small.

10/26/2009 -- What is the shelf life of whole grain? How about crushed grain?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It depends on the conditions of your shelf, of course! Cool and dry conditions are best.From a practal standpoint, grains can be stored uncrushed, in unopened bags for a year or maybe even more at room temperature. If it is crushed, perhaps 1/2 of that.All grains should be stored away from moisture, sealed, and especialy protected from bugs and rodents!
8/5/2009 -- I bought some of your two row organic barley and I am having a hard time germinating it. I am soaking it about 48 hours, rotating between soaking and letting it rest/ rinsing it. The first 10# batch I tried when from smelling sweet to stinking like it was fermented pretty quick and had white stuff showing up. I figured that was because unfortunately i started it right before the heat wave here in Seattle. I threw it out. The second 10# batch I have going right now had the same start and I switched to floor (actually the back side of a large painting) on the floor and rotating it a lot to get air, only about a half inch tall piles. I mist it when it needs it too. It was smelling nice and sweet until after about the two days of the soaking part and two days of floor germinating. It is still only a bit chitted and started to stink. I just washed it and there was a sort of bubbly foam like soap. Am I over reacting and washing away the enzymes or am I doing something else wrong? Any tips? Thanks in advance,
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Unfortunately, you will not be able to germinate the 2-row because it has already been done. All of our grains have already been malted (sprouted) and kiln dried. That's what malted barley is, and brewers use it in this form. It is not a live "seed".Sorry for the wasted effort! If you really want to grow some barley, you'll have to obtain it from a grower or agricultural supply company. Frankly, we don't recommend it unless you have a LOT of acreage sitting around...unlikely in Seattle!
2/16/2009 -- I'm new to homebrewing and have progressed to all grain brewing, I'm really just wondering now what the difference is between 2 row, 6 row, pale ale malt and pilsner malt, they all seem to have really close to the same lovebond rating, I guess the biggest difference would be in the flavor but which one's have what flavor?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Basically, it´s more a matter of color and enzymes. Let´s use 2 row as your ´base´grain. 6-row will taste the same, but have more enzymes (useful for converting wheat mashes, for instance).Pilsner malt will be just a ´titch´lighter in color, with enzymes similar to 2-row. Useful in pilsner, for instance.
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?

11/9/2006 -- Does the American 2-row contain less enzymes than the British pale ale?? and thusly, which would have the better conversion potential when mashing?Mucho gusto,Craig on San Juan Island
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Perhaps a little less, not much. Both have sufficient enzymes to complete the conversion, and have comparable extraction rates.
11/5/2006 -- I live in Seattle, can I come and pick up the bottles in Everett? Do you have a "brick and mortar" store?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You sure can. It is literally made of bricks and mortar, in South Everett.

8/15/2006 -- I have a plan to order base grain about 150 punds and 50 pounds of other special malts. How much it will cost for shipment by surface mail to Japan? And how many days it will takes?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Shipping to Japan is limited to USPS. Surface Mail can take 4-6 weeks to arrive, but in our experience, it will arrive sooner than that.Japan limits the weight of each package to 20 kg (44 lbs). For each package, the cost is about $71.95 USD. To ship 200 lbs would require 5 boxes, and cost close to $350 USD.
3/29/2006 -- Does it cost extra to crush the grains?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We sell the 50 lb bags only uncrushed because once crushed, they will not fit back into the original bag. If you need to have it crushed, order it from the other 2-row product, and just enter it as 50 lbs. It will cost more in this case.
4/21/2005 -- where do i go to buy bulk grain for my grain mill?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No need to go anywhere. We sell grain in bulk (usually 50 or 55 lb bags). Here is a link to the 2-Row grain:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/?Product=1214
5/11/2004 -- about how much would it cost to ship a 50 pound bag?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That depends where we ship TO.....To find the actual cost, go to our website and add the items you want to the shopping cart. On the left side, you will see a blue clickable link that says "Determine Shipping and Sales Tax". Click on that link, and enter your address and zip code. Your shipping costs will then be shown.
1/2/2004 -- How do I order grains in multiples less than a pound? ( i.e. 3/4lb, 12oz etc)
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We've now fixed our website. Click on "Options" and then you can select either pounds OR ounces! Remember, 1 pound = 16 ounces
7/17/2003 -- How do you package grain for shipment?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Typically, we heat seal it into clear plastic bags. If needed they are "double bagged" just in case.You can have it crushed, or uncrushed. We can either mix the grains together or package them separately. These are the "options" you see on the right side of the screen.
