2/26/2011 -- Greetings, Been a while since I did any brewing. All my purchases have been from you for obvious reasons. I noticed you now sell only one style cork. A standard and a premium. Which one went away? Want to try my hand at mead. Would like to use honey local to my area. Can I get a kit without your honey? Thanx gang. the new site is awesome. . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We now only offer the standard corks. The premium corks just became prohibitably expensive.Unfortunately we don't offer the kit minus honey. Here is a list of everything else that is included for you to purchase separately. 1- package of Mead blend (sku N07)1- package of Super Kleer clarifier (sku N38A) 5- campden tablets (sold . . .

9/12/2009 -- I have purchased some 1 liter bottles that have bottle caps on them. I normally use a #9 cork for my other bottles. But I think the mouth of these 1 liter bottles are a bit smaller. Would a #8 work? And since they had bottle caps on them before, can I use corks.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We don't know anything about your 1 liter bottles. They didn't come from here...and without a dimension of the opening, we can't say if the #8 corks are suitable.Sorry.
11/26/2008 -- Hi. I'm looking at your cobalt blue wine bottles. Do you also sell the #9 corks you mention? Thanks.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes we do. Here is a link to that product:http://store.homebrewheaven.com/Product782You'll need a corker to install them, of course. Here is a link to a good one:http://store.homebrewheaven.com/Product341
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 . . .
9/23/2007 -- I have been homebrewing for years, but am new to wine making I want to do it right and was wondering if the premium corks worth the extra money? I wouldn't mind storing some of the bottles for a couple of years.What are your thoughts on filtering wine?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I have never had a problem with using the regular corks, myself. They work well, and I have stored some wine for up to 5 years. Filtering wine (in my opinion) is not usually necessary; and should only be done if a batch has a "problem" with clearing. There are excellent wine clarifiers available.
1/24/2007 -- I use regular no. 9 corks and a floor corker. I let leave my bottles upright for 3 days after bottled, according to directions, then i put them in a wine rack, but i noticed i had a couple of bottles that leaked a drop or two, do i need to use better corks? will my wine go bad from air leak?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I don't see where you have bought either corks or a corker from us. Have no idea what you are using, what directions you are referring to or how severe the problem might be as a result.
11/19/2006 -- I would like to put a label/logo on the cork. Can this be done with the wax coating and do you have any suggestings on printing on corks.thanks
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, this cannont be done with wax. It IS possible to have custom labels/logo imprinted on corks, but I hope you need a LOT of them. The minimum order is usually 10,000 or so to get this done. It may be more.
11/5/2006 -- How much it will cost me per thousand and also the expenses of shipping?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The price is $125 per thousand. Shipping is based on weight and distance. In other words, it depends on where we ship them TO.
7/24/2005 -- Hello. I was wondering if you sell corks in smaller quantities then 100 units. I have just started to make small batches of wine and I would like to continue to start out slowly and only purchase 20-30 corks until I am more experienced with this hobby. Thank you.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We do in the store, but for mailorder we just sell bags of 100. They are pre-packaged. You will be surprised how quickly 100 corks disappear, however!
6/11/2005 -- I need 10,000 wine bottle corks,new,used it doesn't matter,but as cheap as possible!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can sell you corks (new ones) for $112.50 per thousand. Just order from our website and you received and you receive this price!
2/28/2005 -- Why don't you recommend boiling corks? What is wrong with boiling corks?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It breaks down the corks.
2/6/2005 -- i use the floor corker to insert the #9 cork into my bottles,why are they so hard to get out? i use the cork remover that has the 2 probes that go down beside the cork,and it is all i can do to get the cork out without ruining the cork remover or pushing the cork inside the bottle.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Our records show you purchased a double lever corker, not a floor corker...(?) Also, I don't see where you have purchased any of our corks, so I'm not sure what is going on with yours. There are some inferior corks out there, usually old, possibly mis-ized.In any case, this just means you have a good tight fit. Perhaps it is time to try . . .
12/3/2004 -- do these corks have any printing on them?the picture looks like they do...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, they have an image of a grape cluster on them.
10/6/2004 -- My bottles measure at the top 3/4" inside diameter. I ordered #9 corks from you and they do Not fit. Can you please tell me what size I should have ordered. My wine is ready to be bottled and I need to order the correct size immediately.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Are you using a corker? A #9 cork should work just fine, but it is necessary to use a corker to insert them. Finger pressure won't do it.
9/14/2004 -- can the agglomerated corks be used in a hand corker?? i got some by surprize and im not sure i can even use them
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, they will work just fine.
5/3/2004 -- I need a cork that will stay good for 10yrs or more, what do you recommend?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: In that case, we recommend the Premium Wine Corks. They are the best you can get. Here is a link to them:http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/?Target=products.asp&ProductID=618
5/3/2004 -- How long will these corks stay good after bottling? ie storing wine.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Under proper storage conditions, they should last for at least 3-5 years or so. I have had some for 7+ years and they are still in good shape.
11/2/2003 -- How to preserve very old corks?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not sure exactly what you mean...installed in wine bottles? storage of unused corks?...how old? etc. Corks don't require much in the way of special storage. Keep them from becoming contaminated, is about all. A sealed plastic bag works well for most people.
10/12/2003 -- WIll the mini-floor corker work with dry corks or do the corks have to be boiled/soaked? Also, What size and type of corks do you recomend with it and how does it differ from your adjustable double lever corker?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it works beautifully with dry corks. We do NOT recommend boiling corks in any case. We recommend our standard, #9 corks with this corker.The double lever corker pushes the cork down a barrel that compresses it as it on it's way down. The floor corker has a diaphram that compresses the cork first, and THEN pushes into the neck. Both . . .
7/26/2003 -- What is the difference between a #8 and a #9 cork, size wise?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The #9 cork has a nominal diameter of 24mm (0.945") and is considered the standard for wine bottles. It makes a very tight fit in a standard wine bottle.The #8 cork has a diameter of 22mm (0.866")and is a little easier to install, but we don't recommend storing your bottles on their sides with this size cork. The difference in diameter . . .
6/21/2003 -- You say one should not boil corks, what is the best process for preparing the cork before sealing wine bottles?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There is really not need to "prepare" them at all. The corks are very lightly waxed, and should go in just fine. Just insert them dry. If you feel you want to, you can soak them in some warm (not hot) water prior to insertion. This makes them go in a little easier.If sanitation is your concern, you can soak them for a few minutes in sulfite . . .
