12/11/2010 -- Will these caps work on screw top beer bottles? Do you have screw top caps for screw top beer bottles?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. These caps won't work with screw top beer bottles.Screw caps for beer bottles require using specialized equipment beyond what most home brewers want to use. We recommend using the pry-off type (recappable) bottles for home brewing. Those bottles are easily capped with our crimp type cappers.

7/29/2009 -- I'm looking to make some hard apple cider. What yeast would you recommend and what is the best way to carbonate in small batches?Cheers!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The one here (Nottingham Ale Yeast) works well. The is also a liquid yeast culture from Wyeast that is specifically for ciders.As far as cabonating, use about 1 cup of corn sugar per 5 gallons. Bottle into strong beer bottles and cap them.
6/10/2009 -- Im trying to find some heavy, unthreaded glass 12 oz. bottles for my root beer brewing...Do you have any idea where I can find them?

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?

12/8/2007 -- My husband and I would like to start brewing our own beer. We already have the complete wine kit so what extra things will I need to purchase to make the beer? Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not much, aside from the beer ingredients. Starting with one of our Homebrew Heaven ingredient kis is a good way to go. The instructions in the recipe kit will get you going. There are two important differences between making wine and making beer. 1) You will need to boil your beer. This will require a pot to cook your beer in. 2) You'll . . .
1/12/2007 -- I am getting ready to make my first kit which I got from you (West Coast Blonde Ale). In anticipating bottling is there a big difference in plastic versus glass? I'm refering specifically to the 25 oz plastic bottle on your site - seems like a good size and easy with twist tops. Shipping would be very reasonable comparatively also. Are . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Very little difference at all. Maybe for LONG term storage glass is better, but hey...who does that? I prefer to drink my beer than to look at it.Yes, they are re-usable.
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!
11/3/2006 -- This is the same question as someone asked on 8/1/06. There are two types of pry-off bottles ... theres the normal ones that this works with and then there are the 'doubles' as I call them (since it looks like there are two lips one right below the other). I think they are the 29mm european style ones (instead of the 26mm US) and you need . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sorry, I just don't know. There are lots of different bottle configurations in Europe. Yours may be different that someone elses...We only deal with good-old U.S. type bottles, and that is what our cappers and caps work with.The BENCH capper can often accomodate bottles with weird "neck" because it does not contact the neck in order to . . .
2/23/2005 -- I am wanting to make jewelry from old soda bottle caps and I am looking for something to crimp the edges up slightly so the edge of the capis even with the top of the cap. (The fluted edge would be inverted or going up instead of down.) Would this tool do that?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. It crimps the edges DOWN onto the bottle. The only method I have heard of is using a hammer, or rubber mallet to flatten them.
2/6/2005 -- How does this seal the bottle? With a plastic film or something?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, it crimps a metal bottle cap onto the bottle. Often called a crown cap. This is the pry-off type cap.
4/19/2004 -- How long will pop stay carbonated after sealing with the capper?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If it is (nearly) full, and fully carbonated, it will last indefinately. If you are (re)sealing an opened pop, some carbonation will be lost to the empty headspace, but it will equalize out, and retain that carbonation level.
4/2/2004 -- Does this product come with bottle caps? If so how many and can I get them in red? Can I use this product for recapping coca cola bottles? This is for a period play, set in the 50's. I only have a few period coke bottles, but they need to be filled and opened every night.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, the capper does not include the bottle caps.Caps (including red ones) can be ordered separately, by the pound. Here is a link to the caps:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/?Target=products.asp&ProductID=320
7/30/2003 -- Will this capper work on twist off bottles, or do you need a different type for them?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The capper works just fine, it's the bottles that are the problem. You really should use recappable (pry-off) bottles, not twist offs. The pry-offs are designed for recapping. I have heard of people using twist off bottles in a pinch, and they report that many of them sealed...but some didn't. Good homebrew is too precious to lose them . . .
