6/3/2012 -- Is your rice extract certified gluten free for making gluten free beer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is known to be gluten free, but there is no written "certification" available. Another product you may be interested in is our Sorghum Syrup. It is often used to make gluten free beer. Again, no written certification is available, but it is well known to be gluten free
6/21/2011 -- I have a friend that is looking for a few good gluten free beers to satisfy her gluten free issues. Any recipes or especially kits you could recommend? also for what its worth, I just heard that Washington State University just introduced a gluten free wheat berry they invented that you might look into if you have not already done so.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We do offer the Breiss sorghum syrup for use in making gluton free beer. Here is a link to a recipe or two:http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Create-A-Brew/Recipes_Gluten_Free.htmHere is another link with LOTS of recipes:http://www.facebook.com/GlutenFreeHomeBrewing#!/GlutenFreeHomeBrewing/app_208195102528120

10/18/2009 -- Since the canned Coopers extracts are used to produce +/- 5 gallons of brew, along with 2 lbs of corn sugar as an adjunct, can I use 1/2 the can of Coopers and 1 pound of corn sugar to brew 2.5 gallons? I'd like to experiment with flavors and don't want to commit to 2 cases of a beer I may not be happy with...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, this can be done but I would seal up the remaining extract well, and refrigerate it also.Besides, 2 cases of beer isn't a huge committment...that's just a nice afternoon!
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...
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.
5/22/2008 -- I have in the past brewed my own beer but now I am having trouble. I can not find the hopped malt I used to use. Coopers or Muntons. And so many yeast brands. Help a old retired man. Thank you.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I know how it is to be old! Yes, there are many more varieties of EVERYTHING now. You should be able to click on this link, and it will take you to both Cooper's and Munton's Malt Extract Kits.http://store.homebrewheaven.com/Category39As for yeast, many of these "kits" come with the yeast. Check the descriptions. Most hopped extracts do.
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?

1/28/2007 -- I bought 2- 3.75lb. cans Coopers Draught Ale. I want to brew a 5 gallon batch. Am I correct that I will use 1 full can of the malt extract and 2 lbs. more out of the 2nd can? Would that be about right or should I use 2 lbs. of corn sugar instead? Which is better?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not usually. You see the Cooper's "kits", like this one, are hopped malt extracts. If you add more from the 2nd can, you are also adding more hops. Most people (and this is how the recipe reads) add 2 lbs to 2.5 lbs of corn sugar to one can of extract. As far as the BEST way to do it (in my not so humble opinion), is to use dry malt extract in place of corn sugar. That way you end up with more flavor. Use 2-3 lbs and you will have a richer, fuller, tastier beer in the end.
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. Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9109 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204425-355-8865Hours are 10-6:30 M-F and 9:30-5 on SaturdaysHere is a video of the place:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1a5fKvv8XITake a look around!
3/13/2004 -- Will one of these can kits work to make a three gal. batch with out adding more extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. You might find it a bit "hoppy", because the hops are formulated for a 5 gallon batch. Many people like it that way, however.
2/2/2004 -- How much beer will this can (and the others) typically yield?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They typically make 5 U.S. gallons, which is equivalent to about fifty two 12 oz. beers. Usually, you must add some additional corn sugar, or malt extract, per the recipe.
11/18/2003 -- How much will cost to buy by internet 60 pounds of your malt extract Bulk amber malt including transportation to St. paul, Minnesota?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Actually, for any item, you can just add it to your online shopping cart, and then click on "Determine shipping and sales tax". Your actual cost will appear. For this item, the cost is $108 for the malt extract, and $39.00 for shipping to MN ($147.00 total).
10/18/2003 -- I have never done this before but would like to buy this product what type of container would I need to make this beer & are there instructions included with this product? or would I need more iteams to make this beer.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You will need a brewing equipment kit to ferment and bottle the beer. You can find them on our website, or follow this link:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/?Target=products.asp&CategoryID=16
7/4/2003 -- How much dme does it take to equal 1 lb. of bulk liquid extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: DME is about 20% more concentrated (by weight) than liquid malt extract. So:0.8 lb DME = 1 lb LME or,1 lb DME = 1.2 LME
