5/19/2013 -- What is the degree's of lovibond of your liquid dark malt extract? I could not find it listed in the attributes of the product you sell.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Color (deg lovibond) doesn't have much meaning when applied to malt extracts UNLESS you qualify the rating with how much of it is used in a beer. See the table below.For example, if you are making a beer with an expected OG of 1.050, using about 6.5 lbs of extract, you can expect a beer of about 46 lovibond. Make sense?Desired O.G.

5/26/2011 -- I'm looking for barley malt syrup for making bagels.Is there a difference between barley malt syrup for baking and for making beer?Thanks for your help
Response From Homebrew Heaven: None at all, providing it is UNhopped malt extract. We sell a fair amount of it for bagel making. It is available in both syrup form (in bulk) and in powder form, called dry malt extract.

6/7/2009 -- New to this... What's the difference between using the dry malt extract (much cheaper) or the liquid malt extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They are fundamentally the same products, it's just that the malt extract syrup has about 20% water content, and the dry malt extract is well...dry. It is used in different proportions as well. If a recipe calls for 7 lbs of malt extract syrup, you can substitute about 5 lbs of dry malt extract to make the same beer.
3/19/2009 -- In your opinion which is better LME or DME? I've done a few of your kits (they're great!) now I want to try a recipe beer from scratch...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: LME (liquid malt extract syrup) and DME (dry malt extract powder) are exactly the same (in terms of quality), in my opinion. The only real difference is that LME contains about 20% water. Any recipe can be "adjusted" accordingly to obtain the same starting gravity.LME can also discolor somewhat with prolonged storage. DME does not. This shouldn't be a factor as long as you aren't using really "old" LME. We don't sell that. The only reason I bring it up is that some folks have tried to brew a quality beer using a few cans of LME that has been in "uncle Earl's" garage for years. Bad idea. Especially if the cans are bulging...
1/27/2009 -- What is the PPG rating of your Liquid Malts?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For the bulk malt extracts, it is 37 PPG.
10/17/2008 -- Some recipes call for malt syrup, some for dry extract. If a recipe calls for 7 lbs of malt syrup but I have dry extract I want to use how much should I use? What is the conversion factor?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I this case, you would use about 5.5 lbs of dry malt extract. Use about 20% less dry malt extract compared to malt syrup.

2/5/2006 -- In what form does the extract come in? Bags? Bottles? If I order 10 pounds, can I only use half and keep the rest conveniently? How long will it stay good for?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Normally, in plastic tubs with a screw-off lid. Yes, it can be stored, but we recommend refrigeration if you do.The exception is if you order more, like 60 lbs. That we would send in a 5 gallon plastic bucket with a pry-off lid.
