11/6/2012 -- What are the dimensions for the opening of the 5 gallon glass jug?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The opening is approximately 1.5". It accepts either a #6.5 stopper, or a universal stopper. Links to those products are shown below:
4/11/2012 -- what is the inside diameter of the mouth?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Approximately 1.25"It accepts a #6.5 stopper or alternatively a "universal" stopper (see links below)
3/19/2012 -- Does this rubber stopper supports temperatures around 140 degrees?

1/3/2010 -- I have a glass 5gal carboy the opening is 2&1/16" what size stopper should I use because I do not know what a #6,6.5 or 7 would be in inches. Thanks.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: From that information, a #11 stopper is probably just right. It measures 2 13/64" at the top, and 1 7/8" at the bottom. For a complete rundown on stopper sizes, go this this link:http://store.homebrewheaven.com/Product654 and then click on the product name (Rubber Stoppers). It will display a chart of stopper sizes.
9/12/2009 -- If I was to order this Deluxe Kit (bottling version), how long from the time I start, until I am drinking my first home brew (scottish ale)? What do you recommend getting in addition to this kit, to brew maybe 3 different beers at once, or is that an option with 1 kit?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A reasonable estimate for that is 3 to 4 weeks from cooking to drinking.In order to brew 3 beers simultaneously, you would need more equipment, primarily fermenters and airlocks/stoppers. A good way to this at a reasonable cost is to start a new batch about every 10 days. As the first batch comes out of the primary fermenter (it gets transferred . . .
8/29/2009 -- Do you have a #10.5 rubber stopper without a hole? Or a #11? I'm looking for a bung to put on my barrel for cleaning, and I can't seem to get a "solid" option for those two stoppers.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not usually. It's not a common size. We DO have another product that may work for you tho, it's a stopper plug that fills the drilled hole.Here is a link to that product:http://store.homebrewheaven.com/Product1768
7/21/2009 -- I've gotta say, i love your site, whoever is the webmaster/designer deserves a pat on the back.(1) If i was to just buy a 3 gallon bottle (the kind you buy at a grocery store to dispense water at home) would i have to worry about flavors from one batch carrying over to another batch?(2) What size stopper do the one gallon jugs take? . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Thank you. We work hard on our website, and it's nice to hear that it shows!1) Probably not. As long as it's food grade, it should be good unless you decide to make pickles in it or something silly like that. We can't speak for all plastic water jugs, of course. 3 gallons isn't very big, either. With the foaming that occurs during fermentation . . .
10/15/2008 -- Is it possible to get a #9 rubber stopper without a hole? I need one without a hole. If not do you know where to refer me to get one without a hole?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. We DO have a product called C000, which is a rubber "plug" that goes into the standard stopper holes, making it leakproof. If that will work for you, just ask for one in the "Customer Comments" section at checkout and we'll add one for you.
7/14/2008 -- is the hole in the middle the same size for every size stopper?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it is.
7/11/2008 -- I"m trying to find some large-mouth balloons,I use for making wine; They fit over gallon containers; Would appreciate any help; Thanks You; R L Thrush
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The "balloon wine" recipe has been around for at least 40 years (I did this in high-school), but I should tell you it's a BAD idea. You WANT the CO2 to escape!It is much better to use an airlock and stopper. The CO2 will be released, and it does not allow air or bacteria to get in. For a couple of bucks, it improves your wine and is reusable!By . . .
2/28/2008 -- I would like to brew using mason jars. I think the jars are 2.5" in diameter, but I was never very good at math. Do you think the #12 stopper or the #13 stopper would be the one to use?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If the opening is 2.5" inside diameter (across the opening, on the inside), then a #13 should do it.
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?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have an actual brick-and-mortar store in Everett, WA. People actually walk in and buy stuff!Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9109 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Here is a video of our shop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1a5fKvv8XIHeck, you can actually call us on the phone, too! It's 425-355-8865. A person will . . .
10/2/2007 -- I purchased a 1000ml flask thinking it would take the universal stopper. Well I guess the universe is too big. what stopper do I need? Is it the 8.5? I can't find this info in your catalog or your web site.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: THe #8 stopper should work just fine once the airlock is inserted.
6/14/2007 -- I have a demijon 14 gals glass, what size stopper do I need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They use a #11 stopper.
5/17/2007 -- As soon as I receive my order from ya'll I will be attempting my first batch of Mead. Many of the recipes I am looking at making are for 5 gallons of Mead which means I will need close to 5 gallons of water. My questions is: Would one of those 5 gallon water bottles like the kind use in water coolers work as a carboy? The neck of the jugs . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The will WORK but they are not ideal, especially for mead.We like to use a plastic "bucket" type fermenter for the primary fermentation, and then after the activity subsides, then siphon it to a glass carboy. This allows much of the sediment and such to remain in the bucket, but for the secondary fermentation to take place in glass. Glass . . .
1/7/2007 -- What is the best way to remove a stopper? Do you recommend the stoppers that cannot be pushed into the carboy?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: After your carboy is empty, try using a metal coat hanger to "fish" it out.Usually, this happens when you put the stopper in and THEN insert the airlock. Try inserting the airlock into the stopper and THEN put into the carboy. The insertion of the airlock into the stopper hole expands the stopper somewhat, so that it doesn't go too far . . .
11/16/2006 -- I accidentally pushed too hard on my rubber stopper and it fell into my 5 gallon carboy. I figured what the heck and just left it in their while the beer settled (secondary fermentor) and it didn't harm the beer at all.Now I want my stopper out of there though. I tried various things for over an hour... any hints on how to get one . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Far from it. Lots of people have done this. The best "tool" for retrieving that pesky cork is probably a wire coat hanger, bent over, and lots of fishing.
11/2/2006 -- What is the best of cleaning these stoppers? I have several and they have all picked up odors I can't clean off of them.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Just regular cleaning and sanitizing is all I do. Have never noticed an "off" odor...
8/21/2006 -- What is the size of the stopper that fits in the plastic bucket that comes with your kit?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is a #2 stopper, but if you need a different size, we can drill it for you. Just let us know.
6/27/2006 -- Hi i am producing Colloidal Silver.I require it to be kept in coloured glass bottles with a non metal cap.We have plenty of 335ml Tui,Corona .All i need is some caps or corks as such seal them.This natural Antibiotic is used daily so cap needs to be easily resealed.Any options? Let me know as soon as possible.If your bottles are an economical . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It sounds like Expansion Stoppers are what you need. Here is a link to them:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/Product365We have lots of wine bottles, if that helps. They are typically 750 mL. Beer bottles should work as well. 12 oz -22 oz.
3/1/2006 -- Do you sell a two-hole rubber stopper?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No; sorry.
12/24/2005 -- I am useing a water jugs for secondary fermentation (size of 1 gallon milk jugs but had clean water insdie when bought) what size cap do i need to use for a fermenter?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Beats me. It would be best to measure the opening and select the size of stopper you need based on the opening size. There is a chart shown with this product:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/Product654
8/28/2005 -- What is the diameter of the holes?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1/4". They are perfect for an airlock.
3/31/2005 -- I have 5 gallon carboys which size do they take?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Normally, a #6.5 stopper is the one. There is some variation between carboys, however, some are made in Mexico, and some are from Italy. We stock the Mexican produced carboys.This (universal) stopper will work for either type.
10/17/2004 -- I have a one standard one gallon size use wine jug what size rubber stopper will fit this jug?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There are many different sized "one gallon jugs", and from our experience, nothing is "standard". The ones we sell take a #6.5 stopper, but it is best to measure your opening, and select the proper stopper based on the chart we have for that item (Rubber Stoppers). Click on the name to see the size chart.
9/26/2004 -- I have a one gallon glass jug (same kind that you sell with the finger hole at the top) I bought the wrong size of plug and am wondering if you could tell me the correct size I need.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There are LOTS of different openings for jugs of that style. You need to measure the opening. Here is a link to a chart for determining the stopper size you need:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/?Target=products.asp&ProductID=654
12/29/2003 -- are these stoppers, (#2), made of white rubber?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: More of a tan color, actually.
11/14/2003 -- Do you have 18mm rubber stoppers? I need 1 with a hole and 1 without a hole
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Stoppers are actually tapered, wider at the top, and narrower at the bottom. If you mean for an 18mm hole, then yes...the #2 stopper is what you need. (20mm top, and 16mm on the bottom.Here is a link to them:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/?Target=products.asp&ProductID=654
11/13/2003 -- I have a 5 gal. plastic water carboy I will be using,what size stopper with a hole for an airlock do I need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There are several different manufacturers of plastic carboys. It would be best to measure the opening, and then select the correct stopper for that opening.
10/30/2003 -- I have some 7/8's holes in my fermenter lid, No. 3 stoppers are too small, No. 5's are too large. You don't seem to list a No. 4 stopper, which I think would be just right. Now what do I do? Where can I obtain No. 4 stoppers?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The #3 may seem too small, but once you put an airlock thru the hole, it should be about right (the stopper actually expands a little).Alternatively, you could open up the hole(s) to accomodate a larger stopper, I suppose. Sorry, I don't know of a source for #4 stoppers.
10/23/2003 -- Stoppers for 5 gallon glass carboys?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 5 Gallon Carboys use a #6.5 stopper
9/12/2003 -- my bottle has a one and a half inch inside dia.what size stopper do i need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A #8 stopper should work just fine.
8/2/2003 -- I have a rubber stopper that looks like it is size 10 1/2 according to your chart, the bottom measures 1 3/4, the top measures approx. 2 5 1/8" and the hole is 3/8". this particular stopper measures 1 5/8" from top to bottom. I would like to order twenty with a hole in them and twenty with no hole, if possible. Can you please quote me a . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They run $1.55 each. Shipping depends on where you live.
6/20/2003 -- Do you have stoppers that are bottom diameter 3/4" with hole?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The #2 stopper should work well for this. It very slightly less than 3/4" at the bottom. The #3 may also fit.
