11/17/2009 -- I have a recipe that calls for "4 lbs. Otters 2-row". it is the very first item on the recipe. It is for a Boston LagerIf it helps I can give you the rest of the ingredients.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Marris Otter is a specific kind of pale ale malt. We have it. Here is a link to that product:http://store.homebrewheaven.com/Product206
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 . . .
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?

10/12/2007 -- I am looking to make a batch of beer, from scratch. I was wondering for a typical 5 or 6 gallon batch how much grain and hops are typically used to make the wort?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For an all-grain batch of that size, figure on using 8-12 lbs of grain, depending on the style of beer. For hops, perhaps 2-4 oz of hops, depending on variety and style of beer.
11/29/2006 -- I have a question regarding an American Wheat Ale I want to make. I want to use English Pale Ale malt along with 40 to 50% Wheat Malt. However, many German and American wheat beer recipes call for Pilsner or Domestic Two Row. What are the implications of using the more malty English malt with the wheat instead of the lighter malt? Will I get . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No problem whatsoever. Same fermentables, same enzymes etc. It will probably be just a little darker, is all.
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.

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. . . .
4/29/2005 -- I am a malt extract brewer and I like using powder enzyme to make sure that I get a complete fermentation.I was wondering, instead of using the powder could I just use a grain high in enzyme, and just remove the grains once it reaches at around 170 deg.? Will this work as good? About how much grain would I need to use to equal the powder?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sorry, but that won't work for you. The enzymes would be destroyed by the boil.
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
12/25/2004 -- What do you recommend for storage of bulk grains? Is sealed in a food-grade pail in a cool basement ok?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, that will work just fine. The main thing is to keep them dry, and away from moisture.
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
10/13/2003 -- Do you sell drums (55 gal or otherwise) for storing grain?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes we do, or at least we can get them. They have a removable top at would work nicely for that. They go for $65. The real problem is shipping. Due to the size of them it can be expensive. It would be best to call us on these. If you are local, no problem.
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.
