Once again when I needed things to make wine and mead you folks were there. I have been purchasing from this great bunch of people since 2000 when I asked them if they could send me a kit for making mead to South Korea where I was stationed at the time. . . .

Most Valued Piece Of Brewing Equipment
From Anonymous of Yokohama, Armed Forces Pacific on 8/12/2011.
This brewpot is exactly what I was looking for. It is the perfect size for cooking up a fine wort. This high quality pot will be with me for years to come!
1/24/2015 – Is the bottom flat or does it have a ridge?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: This (5 Gallon) brewpot has a flat bottom. No ridge.
10/9/2013 – If I order the 5 gallon brew pot can I have the spigot and sight glass installed before shipping?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We will gladly install the thru-wall fittings needed for the spigot and sight glass. However, we would not install the actual ball valve and sight glass w/adapter because these items would require a much larger box to allow for adequate padding during shipment. Once you receive all your items, all you would need to do is screw in your ball . . .
2/28/2013 – How thick is this particular 5 gallon SS brew pot?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The wall thickness is 0.8 mm. Standard gage for brewpots of this size.
6/9/2012 – When I buy this specific kit (Cooper's Unhopped Wheat Malt 3.3 Lb.) What else do I need to purchase (specifically) to make it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: As far as ingredients, you'll need some additional fermentables, like dry wheat malt extract OR corn sugar, hops, and priming sugar and water. See links below.You didn't say whether/not you already have the equipment for making beer. If so, that's it.If you don't have the equipment, then an Equipment Kit is a great way to go. Additionally . . .
3/12/2011 – I have a ceramic cooktop stove i.e. the heating surface is completely flat. will I have any problems bringing this pot to a boil?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Probably not; depending on the actual heat output (BTU's) of your stove.The question is not really IF, it's a matter of how long it will take to reach a boil. If you're patient, it's not a problem. On a really weak stovetop, it can take an hour (or even more) to reach a boil. It's not really a problem, it's just a matter of waiting... . . .
5/17/2010 – what is your phone number?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can be reached at (425) 355-8865Our toll free order number is (800) 850-2739
12/7/2009 – I am brand new to home brewing and need to know exactly what I should buy to get started. I just want to begin to try to make my own beer and then continue to refine it over time. Please let me know exactly what I need to buy to make my first batch!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: What you need are:1) A Homebrew Heaven Equipment Kit (Complete or DeLuxe version, your choice). Both are good, the DeLuxe Kit just contains more "convenience" items.2) An Ingredient Kit of your choice (like Wizard Wheat, Seattle Rain Beer, etc...again your choice). These are available from a drop-down list when you buy the Equipment Kit. . . .
7/23/2008 – I am considering buying one of your kits and am wondering for the brewpot if a electric turkey frier would work or if there is some reason that this wouldn't work. Thanks this site is great.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Can't say about your frier. Haven't seen an ELECTRIC version of one... The propane powered ones might be alright, but they usually sell and aluminum pot with it. Stainless is a better choice.Oooooops...After looking at an electric one online, I would now say to avoid electric turkey fryers. They appear to have the heating element INSIDE . . .
4/19/2008 – This is just an F.Y.I. for the person who posted that a 12" diameter 10" high container has a volume of 1.5 gallons. In order to find the volume of a cylindrical container, you use the formula:[(3.14159)*radius^2]*heightThis gives us: [(3.14159)*6"^2]*10"=1130.97 Cubic InchesThe conversion factor for Cubic Inches to . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Correct!
4/1/2008 – I am wondering is it ok to use this for 5 gallon stainless steel pot. And, do the gas tanks that come with bbqs fit these connections. How do I know what connections will fit.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it will be fine with a 5 gallon brewpot.It comes with a common BBQ type fitting.
2/1/2008 – I calculate that a 12" diameter pot that is 10" tall has a volume of 1.632 gallons, not 5 gallons. 1.632 gallons should be enough to prepare 1.5 gallons of wort, but it seems you're advertising that this pot actually hold 5 gallons of liquid. Is this true, or is there some error in the dimensions that you list on this page?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Your calculations are off. The volume of a cylinder is given by:V= pi times radius squared times heightV=(pi)(36)(10)= 1131 cubic inchesOne gallon = 231 cubic inchesSo the pot holds 4.9 gallons. Please understand that the pot measurements are approximate. We are confident that it actually holds 5 gallons.
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 Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Heck, 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!
11/6/2007 – To brew 5 gallons of beer do I need a 5 gallon brew kettle, or larger?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Bigger is better, in our opinion. The larger pot allows for more water in the boil, fewer boilovers, and for evaporation that occurs during the hour long boil.
3/30/2007 – i just made my first batch of home brew,and realized i used an aluminum pot to brew it on the stove. is this safe?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Homebrewers have taken sides over this issue for years. We feel that stainless steel is the BEST material, however.Aluminum is light, transfers heat quickly and is inexpensive to buy. Drawbacks to aluminum brewpots are that it will "pit" over time, it doesn't clean as easily, it will dent easier, and even the contention that aluminum contributes . . .
3/8/2007 – Can you do a 10 gal boil in a 12 gal pot? Taking into consideration you would have to use at least 11 gal of wort due to evaparation?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's pretty marginal. It IS possible to add some water DURING the boil to replace that lost to evaporation. Consider too, that you will lose more like 2 gallons to evaporation for a 10 gallon batch. It could probably be done, but...Bigger is better!
2/21/2007 – Is it true that the "harder" the boil with more water, the better results in the beer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Two separate questions, actually. 1) Boiling "harder" probably has no effect. Boiling is boiling, ...temperature-wise.2) More water (a thinner wort) definately DOES make a difference. A thinner, less concentrated wort will cause less carmelization of the malt sugars, and therefor a) make a lighter colored beer b) make a more fermentable . . .
1/27/2007 – My next goal in brewing is to go to a full 5 gallon boil. My kitchen stove is halogen so I just don't think I can do it without an outdoor burner. I was hoping you could give me a recommendation. I am looking for something with fine jets as I heard this is much better to prevent scorching or else is gas efficient. Also I heard the pot . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You CAN'T find a better burner than this one. Gets very hot, yet has many fine jets to disperse the heat evenly:All the pots we sell are quality grade pots. Just pick a size that works for you. If you are considering all-grain brewing in the future, a large pot is a MUST. Here is a linkg to that category:
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 Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204425-355-8865Hours are 10am-6:30pm Monday-Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturdaysand 10am-3pm on Sundays
10/19/2006 – I currently brew using extract but want to go to all grain brewing. Could you recommend the proper size brewpot and burner assembly required to make up to 7 gallons. I have a 3, 5, and 7 gal carboy.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Like so many things, there is no single right answer. Higher gravity beers, like bocks and porters etc require more grain, and therefor more volume in the mash kettle. American style beers require less volumn. How carefully you control the all-grain mashing process also dictates how much grain is required. Given the above, I would . . .
2/1/2005 – Where can I buy the hops to brew the beer? I live in Plainview, Texas....would love to brew my own. But, I need the ingredients to brew it. will buy your equipment, so....where can I buy the goodies to brew it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here! We have a large selection of hops, yeasts, grains and everything you need in the way of ingredients. Here is a link:A good way to get started is to choose one of our ingredient (recipe) kits. They get you started the right way!
10/8/2004 – I am a novice and have only brewed 3 5 gal. batches. My instructions say to boil 2 to 2.5 gallons of wort. Am I correct in reading that you suggest to boil the entire 5 gallons?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Correct. No idea where you got those instructions, but we recommend boiling the full 5 gallons (or more).Using a small brewpot (or less than a full volume boil) causes a "concentrated boil", if you will. Many inexpensive "kits/recipes" put this in their instructions, but it is bad advice. This concentrated, sugary mixture will easily . . .
7/18/2003 – I am new to the whole beer making thing so can you tell me what exactly I need to make a batch? I know that I will need one of the kits but how about the pots you boil the water in? Is that included? Thanks.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: What you need are:1)An Equipment Kit 2) An Ingredient Kit of your choice (like Wizard Wheat, Seattle Rain Beer, etc...again your choice)3) A pot to cook it in (not included). Minimum size is 3 gallons. A better choice is 5 gallons or even more.4) Recappable bottles (not included) You can get them from us, the local recycling center . . .
