Nice way to bottle. Reusable bottles that are lightweight,
rugged and hold a full pint of beer! Comes with tamper evident
caps. Great for camping, hiking, hot tubs, boating etc. Inexpensive
to ship as well!
12/29/2014 – Hi am into herbal home brewing and I do what to use plastic bottles for my bottling instested of glass bottles. Pls do advice me much on this. Thank U.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Either type of bottle (glass or plastic) can be used for home brewing. Choose the type that you prefer. See links below.
6/11/2012 – I just purchased your deluxe brewing kit and 3 ingredient kits. I live in Maine and it looks like shipping bottles will be cost prohibitive. Can I use 16oz plastic beer bottles and do you sell them? Respectfully, Mark Haskell
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, plastic bottles can be used, they just don't look "traditional". As long as your beer is stored out of bright light, I see no probelm.We do sell them, see link below.It is often easy to find re-cappable bottles locally, from bars, taverns and recycling places. Respectfully? Wow. We don't get THAT much!Enjoy

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?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sure, from us!Here is a link to that product
3/24/2008 – Would the Red Star Pasteur Champagne yeast work well for making root beer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, that would be a good yeast to use. Very neutral flavor, works fast.
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.

1/4/2007 – if i order a soda extract what else do i need ie:yeast? etc
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Just use the concentrate, some champagne yeast and sugar. As far as equipment, you'll need something to mix it in, and strong bottles and caps. These can be glass, and you can apply caps with a capper, or you can use plastic screw type bottle. Don't forget some sanitizer, too.
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
9/25/2006 – I am starting to collect bottles from around town. I heard rumor from a friend that if I used a clear bottle I needed to do something additional to the beer, but then from another I heard that was for green bottles.Does is matter the color of glass bottle used in brewing? If so, what is the best glass color. And what additional work does . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Clear and green bottles allow harmful light rays to affect the beer. If you keep your beer away from intense light, especially sunlight and florescent lights, it's not an issue.Brown beer bottles are the best, without a doubt.
9/10/2005 – Can you also put the root beer in a 5 gallon keg?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely. That is what they were originally designed for.
5/20/2005 – Hi - Love your store and am now just about a regular - I hope. Can you give me a Cliff Notes version of soda making - what I need, supplies, how to, etc. I think it would be fun for my kids. They would love to make rootbeer, I think.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Thank YOU, Kim. Making soda pop is easy, real easy. To give it a try, order a few flavors, and start saving your plastic soda bottles...the kind you buy soda in now. They will wash out nicely, just save the caps.The soda flavors come with complete instructions, but here is the "Cliff Notes" version:To make 4 gallons:Stir together . . .
4/9/2005 – This isn’t really a question but a tip for the soda pop makers out there: After you bottle your soda place bottles in a plastic storage bin (with cover) and place bin in an out of the way spot for fermentation to take place. Should you have a bottle burst it will greatly minimize the cleanup!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Good advice, if using glass bottles. Plastic is much safer.
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!
7/19/2004 – My favorite soda is Vanilla Coke. I'd like to make it and put on tap in a 5 gallon keg. Should I mix cola extract with cream soda extract, or cola with a vanilla flavoring? I'd hate to ruin 5 gallons of soda to figure this out.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I'll confess that I haven't tried this modification. My guess, however, is to use the cola extract with vanilla flavoring. You would probably have to use a lot of cream soda flavoring to get the flavor you are after. Just a guess!Another twist is to add a whole vanilla bean, and let it sit for a week or two before drinking.
6/23/2004 – If I order a soda extract, what else do I need to make a batch of soda?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For ingredients, you'll need water, sugar and yeast. We recommend champagne yeast.For equipment, you'll need a bucket, a long spoon, some bottles, caps and capper. Oh yes, some sanitizer is good too.
3/19/2004 – I would like to know how you would rate you soda extract kits if I followed the direction's that they come with. Would you rate the end product as like a name brand soda or an off brand or possibly somewhere in between? I usally only drink pepsi and good root beer and cream soda. Do you think that it is possible to add a little carmel to . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I'll confess that I'm no soda pop connoisseur, but I would rate them as very good. I've made root beer, ginger beer (my favorite) and cream soda. With any of the extracts, it's easy to "alter" them to your tastes by using more (or less) extract to obtain a "premium" soda flavor. Many people also use honey in their root beer for added flavor . . .
1/24/2004 – How come the yeast does not create alcohol? And what is the yeast for?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Wine yeast DOES create alcohol. The function of yeast in making wine is to convert sugars into alcohol and CO2. When making soda pops, there is a preservative that prevents the yeast from converting too much of the sugars into alcohol, however. Normally you end up with less than 1/2 of 1 percent alcohol. The yeast in this case is used . . .
11/21/2003 – Can you make any of the soda pop sugar free?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: To make it completely sugar free, you must use a keg to force carbonate it. There is a LOW calorie version recipe in the box, however, using artificial sweetener and just a very small amount of real sugar (for the bottle carbonation).
11/2/2003 – My father wants to make root beer. I understand that you have ingredients for the root beer but where can i get the equipment to bottle and make the root beer in?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here at Homebrew Heaven! We have bottling equipment in the Beer Brewing section, and food grade buckets etc in the Carboys/Fermenters section.See below for the links to take you there
10/14/2003 – Can you mix the soda extract with water in a 5 gal. cornelius keg and then force carbonate it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely! That's the best way possible, in my ( not so) humble opinion.
10/3/2003 – If you make rootbeer and let it sit long enough, does the yeast fermentation create any significant amount of alcohol?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not really. It produces less than 1/2 of 1% alcohol. It would take a heckofalota soda pop to give a buzz.
9/24/2003 – My husband wants to make homemade root beer and bottle it for future use, what kind of supplies do we need to start?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The easy way is to use the concentrate that we sell, some wine yeast and sugar. As far as equipment, you'll need something to mix it in, and strong bottles and caps. These can be glass, and you can apply caps with a capper, or you can use plastic screw type bottle. Don't forget some sanitizer, too.
9/6/2003 – As with your beer brewing kits, are the soda making kits complete? Nothing like brewing with the family, but the kids aren't going to be allowed to test the beer.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The soda extracts are the flavorings necessary to make soda pop, and have instructions on how to use them. We sell the yeast separately. You can use plain, household sugar, or corn sugar (we sell that separately also). Oh yes..you'll need water!It will also be necessary to provide bottles, caps etc. and something to stir it all together . . .
8/17/2003 – Is this the proper champagne wine yeast to use in making home rootbeer? If not what is? I was told to use dry ice or champagne yeast. If this is right , how do I use it and how much?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, this yeast will work well. For our soda flavors, use about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon per 4 gallons. One 5 gram package is more than enough for this much. For "other" recipes, flavors etc...frankly, I don't know.
7/28/2003 – I have never made soda. How long does it take, and what is the shelf life? I was thinking about making some for my children at Christmas.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Good idea! Kids love seeing (and helping) with the process, as well as drinking the product. It takes about a half-hour to stir it together, and about 2-3 weeks for the soda to fully carbonate. If you bottle into plastic (soda) bottles, you can tell it's ready when the bottles are hard.
