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!
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.

9/12/2007 -- If someone in say, New Zealand, were to purchase your flaked maize, would they be able to use it for a mash with the intent of then creating corn whiskey? Is there a more proper form of corn that I should tell my friend in New Zealand to use? Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely, and legally as well! Flaked maize is a good choice.The easiest way, of course, would be to just ferment corn sugar. Less "corn" flavor, of course, but effective. Lots of different forms of corn CAN be used. whole kernal, etc. The key is just to mash it to obtain the sugars, and then ferment and distill.
3/1/2007 -- Can amalayze enzyme be used to convert the starch in the flaked maize to fermentable sugars?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes.

4/13/2006 -- ive never used flaked corn before should i put it in a grain bag . or mix it in like dme?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Flaked corn should be mashed, along with 2-row or 6-row barley. Those grains have the required enzymes to convert the corn from starch to sugars for fermentation. It should not be used as a specialty grain. It is typically used by all-grain brewers to increase the alcohol content, and to lighten the color of their beer. If you are an extract brewer, you can use corn sugar for these purposes.
4/21/2005 -- where do i go to buy bulk grain for my grain mill?

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.
