12/24/2009 -- I have an amber ale recipe calling for LME and crystal crushed malt to which I had planned to add wheat. For the wheat, I purchased torrified wheat from you. That might have been a mistake on my part. I see that one of your posted Q&A answers states that torrified wheat needs to be mashed along with grain containing enzymes and if it's not . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry, but adding malt extract to the torrified wheat will do nothing towards converting the torrified wheat. There are no remaining enzymes in the malt extract.If you want to add some wheat, it's easy to do by adding a portion wheat malt extract. It's either that or adding some 6-row (or 2-row) to the torrified in order to mash (convert) . . .
11/30/2009 -- Does this wheat require a protein rest or is it fully modified?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is fully modified, but of course malted wheat needs to be mashed along with an enzymatic grain like 2-row, 6-row or munich in order to be fully converted into fermentable sugars.
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 . . .
9/18/2009 -- Can I use this grain (torrified wheat) as a specialty grain? I'm making a partial mash receipe and I like these grains.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It depends how you use it. In order to extract any fermentable sugars, it needs to be mashed along with grain containing enzymes, like 2-row or 6-row. That means steeping it in water along with these enzymatic grains at about 150 deg F for at least a half hour. Use at least equal amounts of enzymatic grain as torrified wheat. If you . . .
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.

12/3/2005 -- I've been looking into replicating a few of my favorite commercial beers, and I find things like "lager malt" and "mild ale malt" that I don't see at your site. Is this the recipe book publishing company trying to push an affiliated product on me, and are there appropriate substitutes?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Those are both kind of obsolete terms. Yes, there are perfectly good substitutes:Lager malt = pilsner malt, like Belgian Pilsner Malt. Very light in color.Mild ale malt = Pale ale malt, like British Pale Ale Malt. A little more color is all.Actually, good old fashioned 2-row or 6-row can be substituted for either one quite nicely. . . .
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
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
9/6/2003 -- How is this barley processed? Is it high in amaylase enzymes?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Barley, as used in brewing beer, is processed by malting and drying. The malting process is just moistening the grains with water until they sprout. After it has sprouted, the grains are dried in a kiln. This sprouting and drying process is called malting. This process makes the grains rich in starches. To make beer, those starches are converted . . .
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.
