2/8/2011 -- I'm looking for a 2.5°L German light crystal malt. Do you have something close enough to this? I need 4 oz. Please advise via email. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I don't believe it is possible to MAKE a 2.5L crystal malt. Crystal malts are carmelized grains, and the carmelization process will darken the grains to various degrees. Most likely your recipe is incorrect; and it is actually referring to Carapils. Not technically a crystal malt, but very light in color, and does add body to your beer.Here . . .

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.
12/12/2008 -- Does your "pilsner malt" product have enzymes or will I have to mash it with another enzyme-containing malted grain?Also do you know of a good reference that I could use for this type of question - what "specialty grains" have enzymes? Papazian talks about some grains but not others.....
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, our pilsner malt has sufficient enzymes to self-convert. No need to mash with other grains.The best reference I know of is in chapter 12 of Palmer's "How to Brew", altho it too is incomplete in some ways. Here is a link to the beginning of that chapter:http://www.howtobrew.com/section2/chapter12-1.html
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?

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
1/31/2005 -- I have an all-grain recipe which calls for:Belgian 2 RowCaraMunichBelgian Special BBelgian PilsnerBritish Chocolate MaltUnfortunately I do not have the ability or experience for full mash. I would expect to use Light DME or equivalent MES in place of the two-row; however is it possible for the rest of the ingredients to steep . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The 2-row and the pilsner grains are capable of starch conversion, i.e. must be mashed. You will need to substitute extract for those. The others do not require conversion, and in fact cannot be converted. Those grains you can just steep in the water as it is coming up to temperature. Remove at 170 deg F.
11/29/2004 -- Is this Belgian Pilsner malt typically a 2 or 6 row barley ?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is typically a 2-row.
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.
