12/26/2012 -- Can i install a spigot in my brew pot with out using a false bottom?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Certainly. We can do that and just screw in a spigot, for instance.
4/14/2012 -- Does the inside of this fitting option allow for installation of a kettle screen?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes it does. Screws right in!
4/8/2012 -- I'm just getting started with home brewing. Friends are all telling me to go with a larger brew pot. I've decided to go with a 10 gallon stainless. Assuming price is no object can you recommend a set up (spigot, thermometer etc.) that will allow me to expand as I gain experience?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's confusing, isn't it? I'll try to help with that.A 10 gallon pot is NICE to have indeed. It works well for a 5-7 gallon batch of EXTRACT beer. Nice indeed. If cost was no object (it always is at my house), I would go with the Blichmann 10 gallon pot. If however, you ever want to do all-grain brewing (instead of extract brewing) bigger is better. For this you have a fairly large volume of grains which convert into malt sugars (kinda like extract). In addition, a larger volume is more (temperature) stable and the larger volume helps compensate for the extra time spend brewing this way. Make sense?If you expect to step up to this method of brewing I would go with a 15 gallon (or larger) pot. Again, the Blichmann Engineering Brewpot is top of the line. If your budget comes into play (like mine) then it's worth looking at our 15.5 Gal Brewpot. We are happy to equip it with Thru-wall fittings, spigot, thermometer and even a false bottom.Again, it's a matter of how you intend to proceed in this interesting hobby...extract or all-grain brewing. Both make excellent beer. It's more a matter of how you attack it!Hope this helps. If not, let us know and we are happy to help. Brewing is our life!
3/11/2012 -- I only see the brass ball valve option on your site. Do you no longer have the stainless?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: At this time, we are out of the stainless steel bulkhead fittings to make them up. Sorry. We do have the stainless ball valves, but not the fittings. They are on backorder, but it may be a while before they are available.
2/18/2011 -- The only option currently available for the Brewpot Spigot Kit is Brass, is Stainless Steel also available? How can I order SS rather than Brass?Great website by the way! Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We just now made the Stainless Steel option available. Just order away!
10/24/2010 -- I purchased your 7.5 Gallon Stainless Steel Brewpot a little less than 1 year ago. At that time I regrettably did not have a spigot kit and bulkhead fitting (for thermometer) installed by you guys. Would it be possible to send the pot back to you and to get a ss spigot and ss bulkhead placed? I will be ordering other items from you, so the retrofitted pot can just be placed in that order for return shipping.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely, Kalen. We have no problem with that.Maybe print out (or copy/paste) this information when you place your order is all...we can make it happen!RalphHomebrew Heaven9109 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204

4/21/2010 -- What size is your # SKU: E200 pot in quarts or gallons ?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That product SKU refers to just the Spigot Kit, not a brewpot. We can mount that spigot into any pot that we sell.We do, of course, sell brewpots sized from 6 to 55 gallons. You can view those pots by clicking here:http://store.homebrewheaven.com/Category19
4/13/2010 -- I ordered the 7.5 Gallon Stainless Brewpot with installed stainless spigot. What diameter hose do I need to attach to spigot and does it have a barbed fitting?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The spigot kit does not come with a barbed fitting on the outlet side. We can certainly add one to your order, however, as well as the hose if you like. Please respond ASAP if you do.We have both stainless steel and brass barbed fittings that screw into the spigot. See product links below. Each barbed fitting has either a 3/8" or a 1/2" barb available. Personally, I like the stainless version with a 1/2" barb and 1/2" ID hose.
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 actually answer as long as it's business hours!
7/8/2007 -- What is the size of this Kettle?How many gallons is it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: This product is a spigot assembly only, not a kettle. The kettle shown in the picture (for illustrative purposes) is either a 12 or 15 gallon model. We can install the spigot assembly on any size pot.
11/20/2006 -- What's the status of the installed spigot kit? The answer to the previous question said it was changed to "Backorder" from "Sold Out" (so that it could still be ordered), but that doesn't appear to be the case.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sorry, but we had to do that. After having the proper gaskets for years, we now are having trouble with getting them. We are working on it, but they are difficult to come by.
11/17/2006 -- any idea when the thru wall fittings will be in stock again??? getting restless here.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We have them back in now!
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.

10/24/2006 -- I'd like to buy this pot with the spigot kit installed, but it's still saying sold out. Are you going to stop doing this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We have them in now!
10/17/2006 -- I'm pricing out kettles and options and noticed your ball valve installation is "sold out". Any idea if/when this will be available again? Great price overall if this was an option again.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we're sorry about the sold out condition. What happened is, that when we ordered more of the thru-wall fittings, they sent us plastic/rubber gaskets instead of the ceramic ones needed for high temperature applications. We expect to have those sent to us in the next few days, however.We have now changed the status to "Backordered" so that you can actually order, and we will send out your pot/spigot when they arrive.
9/16/2006 -- I am interested in purchasing some brew pots with the installed ball valve. I am going to use these pots in an autoclave. Do you think the valve will hold up under the heat and pressure?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, I don't see why not.
8/19/2005 -- I ordered a spigot and it was installed by you. I need to know what I need to thread a hose into the spigot so I can run the hose directly into the fermentor.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A barbed fitting will do the trick, along with some hose and a hose clamp. Here is a link to the barbed fitting:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/Product1135If you use a 1/2" dia hose, here is the link to that product:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/Product1310The hose will just push onto the barbed fitting, but if you like you can tighten it down with a common hose clamp.
8/7/2005 -- Considering a 15 gallon stainless brew kettle from you guys. Seems almost straight forward with the fittings and temp gauge (whats the charge for a temp gauge fitting?). Im more curious about the false bottom. Doing 10 gallon extract/partial mash brews now, but plan on going all grain soon. Can the false bottom be installed easily later? Can the propane 90,000 BTU burner that goes for $50 easily hold up the weight of the kettle with 14 gallons of initial wort?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The temp guage fitting (thru-wall fitting) is $8.95 for brass, and $23.95 for the stainless steel version.Yes, the false bottom can be easily installed later. Just screw it into the inside of your thru-wall fitting where your ball valve is.Yes, the propane cooker you mentioned can easily hold the 14 gallons of wort(about 112 lbs) required.
5/12/2005 -- Hi, I'm interested in purchasing your delux beer brewing kit along with a stainless steel (7.5 gallon) brew pot with the spigot kit installed. I'd like to (eventually) add the screw-in thermometer - can the fitting be added when I purchase the pot (with some sort of plug) in order to accomodate the screw-in thermometer later? This would simply be to save the initial expense. Thanks in advance!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we can do that. Just order a thru-wall fitting, and ask us to install it for use FOR a thermometer. Make a note in the "Comment" section at checkout that you need a "plug" for the thermometer fitting, and we'll make it happen!
4/4/2005 -- I am interested in purchasing the Brewpot Spigot Kit (Installed) with my brewpot purchase.What size tubing goes on the spigot..is it threaded so it will hold the tubing or do I need to use a clamp?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The ball valve actually has 1/2"NPT (female) thread on the outlet side. We have both stainless and brass barbed fittings that you can screw into the ball valve to accomodate either 3/8" or 1/2" ID tubing.
5/13/2004 -- What is the difference between the weld b gone spigot for $34.95 and the spigot you install for $21.85? Just the all stainless of the weld b gone?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sort of. The weld-b-gone has a stainless steel ball valve AND a stainless steel fitting. Ours is a brass spigot and fitting.
4/20/2004 -- Hello, I am thinking about buying a brew pot from you. I saw that there was a brewpot spigot kit i could you to install on a brewpot. My question is if I purchase a brewpot and the spigot kit will you also install a bazooka tube if i buy it as well?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sure, but you will find that it just screws into the inside of the thru wall fitting that we install. We normally just ship the Bazooka Screen loose; and the brewer just "screws and brews"! Very easy.
2/4/2004 -- I have been brewing with some friends for a little over a year and would like to try all grain brewing on my own. I know I would need the deluxe brewing kit, but I am trying to find out which pot I need that would best suit my needs of making 5-5.5 gallon batches.Thanks
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The 7.5 gallon brewpot should suite your needs just fine.
10/19/2003 -- I've just bought a 12 gallon brewpot with Spigot kit installed. "A thru-wall fitting that has internal threads, 1/2NPT. To this, a close nipple is threaded on, also 1/2" NPT. Onto the close nipple, the ball valve is screwed on. The ball valve itself has 1/2" NPT threas. Coming OUT of the ball valve there is another 1/2" NPT internal thread. Most people screw in a barbed plastic or brass fitting if they want to connect a hose. My question is, since it didn't come with the kit installation, "where do I get a barbed plastic or brass fitting so I can connect a hose? Thanks, HM
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You are correct, it needs to be on the website....POOOF! I just made it happen. This fitting now appears just below our brewpot spigot kit. It comes in two sizes, for 3/8" ID hose and for 1/2" ID hose. Picture will follow.
10/12/2003 -- IS A FALSE BOTTOM NEEDED,AND WHAT DOES IT DO,AND WHAT IS A BAZOOKA SCREEN?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A false bottom or Bazooka screen is only needed if you are doing all-grain brewing. This is an advanced technique that is used in place of malt extract. Our ingredient kits do not require either.They are used to hold back the grain, to keep it from draining thru a spigot.
8/16/2003 -- The spigot is a valve that allows flow to the outlet that is 1/2NPT with interior threads, correct? Could flexible copper tubing with a 1/2NPT be connected? How is the spigot sanitized? Is it removed from the brewpot and baked? Or do chemical sanitizers have to be used? Is the valve inner workings rubber/plastic? Thanks
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not sure exactly what you mean, but the spigot kit has:A thru-wall fitting that has internal threads, 1/2NPT. To this, a close nipple is threaded on, also 1/2" NPT. Onto the close nipple, the ball valve is screwed on. The ball valve itself has 1/2" NPT threas. Coming OUT of the ball valve there is another 1/2" NPT internal thread. Most people screw in a barbed plastic or brass fitting if they want to connect a hose. As long as your flexible copper tubing has a male 1/2 NPT fitting on the end, it should work fine.The spigot is usually steriled by chemical sanitizers, like iodophor, star-san etc. Remember too, that just running some boiling water thru it works just as well. The valve body is brass, and the internals are made of stainless steel`and brass with heavy duty plastic seals.
8/9/2003 -- What size spigot is this? Can it be adapted to a Bazooka screen?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Well, the threads are 1/2" NPT, and that's a pretty good size spigot. The outside of the valve body measures about 1". Yes, the Bazooka screen screws directly into the back side of the thru-wall fitting/spigot connection. Perfect match!
