10/31/2012 – what is the thread size of your 3 pc stainless ball valve. i need 3/4 ". thanks
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They are 1/2" NPT. Please understand that you cannot simply measure across the opening. NPT stands for National Pipe Threads, as decribed here:http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/npt-national-pipe-taper-threads-d_750.html
5/28/2010 – Regarding the spigot... Do you have to disinfect it or does it get disinfected by boiling the wort and heating the pot up? Are the spigots stainless steel or are the brass? The photos make them look brass.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It gets disinfected by the heat from the boil. No worries.You can select either brass or stainless steel. Here is a link to those products:

11/30/2009 – What are the merits of a stainless spigot (vs. the less expensive brass spigot)?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Functionally, there is none. They work the same.Many people including breweries prefer stainless steel because it is tough (durable) and impervious to chemical attack. The drawback is the cost.Brass spigots are less so, and fit more budgets!There are also some people who are concerned about the brass components "leaching" into their brew. It's difficult to determine how valid this is.
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!
11/9/2007 – I ordered your 15 gal. brew pot,and the false bottom and temp. guage,also the ball valve. After mash and laudering, can I dump the wort back in the 15 gal. pot after I clean out the grain to boil, or will this be too much aerating of the wort?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Certainly, you can do that. I would avoid any unnecessary splashing, is all. Siphon your wort if you can to avoid oxygenating it (called hot-side aeration).
9/4/2007 – i am looking into getting a brew kettle with the spigot installed. also i'm looking at getting the false bottom as well. Do i need the thru wall fitting that it shows with the false bottom or does the false bottom connect with the spigot? looking forward to brewing, thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You will need the thru wall fitting with both. The false bottom screws into it from the inside, and so does the ball valve (spigot), from the outside (with a threaded nipple in between).
3/9/2007 – Can you screw in the Kettle Screen and a ball valve into the bulkhead fittings?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The Kettle Screen screws right in to the inside of the bulkhead fitting. The ball valve has female threads, so it requires a Stainless Threaded Nipple 1/2" betweed the fitting and the ball valve. Here is a link to those products:

7/25/2006 – I have purchased the deluxe kit and an 8 gal brewpot. Must say i love it all. Now i want to move on to an all grain brew and i want to get the spigot and brewmometer and just wanted to know what i needed to do to install it all along with the hole diameter
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's not too hard to install either one, but I should tell you that if you want to move to all-grain brewing, you are (probably) going to want an additional pot anyway. Of course, we can install those items for you. One is used to hold the grains and water, and the other is used to collect the runoff for boiling. There are other ways to do it, like using a Gott cooler for the grains and water, but it's still handy to have at least 2 pots (one for heating the water, and one for collecting the runoff).To install a Spigot and Brewmometer, you will need a Bulkhead Fitting for each one. We have them in both brass and stainless steel. You will need to drill a 1.06" diameter hole, install the fittings, and tighten them down. Add a Threaded Nipple for the spigot, and you've got it. The Brewmometer will screw right in to the Bulkhead Fitting.
6/1/2006 – Is brass OK to use in a brew kettle valve, mash tun, and/or HLT? I've heard something that it has to be treated because it contains lead. I've been using one in my mash tun for years now and don't notice any effects but was just curious.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Personally, I believe the tiny amount of lead within the brass is not enough to worry about, especially since your wort only touches a small bit of it (briefly) on the way out. There are ways to treat the brass prior to using it by soaking it in a solution that leaches out the surface lead.If that is a concern, however, we do have an all stainless steel unit as well!
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!
