8/16/2012 – Will the bottle caps that come with this kit work on screw top beer bottles?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can't guarentee it. Screw top bottles are typically thinner, and designed for screw caps. We recommend recappable (pry off) beer bottles only. Some people use screw top bottles, but occasionally they don't seal. Too disappointing to be worth it!
9/13/2011 – If I provide you with a Fedex account number, will you ship me bottlecaps using that account?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we can do that; but we do charge a $5 fee for the extra time/work involved in changing the billing.
12/31/2010 – Do your bottlecaps have the plastic liner? If so, how would I remove them?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, our caps have plastic liners. That is what makes them seal!For crafting purposes, however we're told that boiling for at least 5 minutes will help, then use tweezers to remove the liners. Sorry, we have no experience in removing them.
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 reliably 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.
11/19/2010 – how many bottle caps are there per pound?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Approximately 210 caps are in 1 pound.
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
11/6/2009 – I am needing bottle caps for a craft. I need the inside of the cap to measure 1", is this the standard size? Or are the ones I am needing "Large"? I would love, love, love to have mixed colors, and also one batch of Silver.http://homebrewheaven.com/
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Open up a botle of beer. That is the size!
10/8/2009 – I see in your reply to another question you offer red, blue, gree, silver, gold and black bottlecaps. Not all the colors are included in the drop down list to order. How do I oder these other colors?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I guess the quick answer is that you can't...yet. We are currently out of several colors, but should have them in soon. When they arrive, we'll add them to the drop down list. Check back in about a week or so.Sorry for the inconvenience!
8/27/2009 – Is it correct to assume that the colored bottle caps that you carry are lead free/food grade?How many colors can you get from your supplier?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, they are lead free and food grade.The "normal" colors are red, green, blue, silver, gold and black. Occasionally we are able to obtain other colors, or run out of a particular color. It's always best to check our website for "what's available now". If we have them, they show up there.You can select any of those on our website . . .
8/20/2009 – If I order mixed bottle caps can I specify a mix of black, red, and silver, or is that too much of a pain in the a**!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sure, you can do it. Just specify that in the "Customer Comments" section when you check out. If we have 'em, you get 'em!
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.
6/9/2009 – i was wondering when u mix colors do u normally do a few of each are how does that work?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: When a customer asks for mixed colors, we simply grab a handfull or so of each color we have, until we rach the weight ordered.
10/2/2008 – I am a repeat shopper here at HH, and was wondering if you could tell me where to find some bottlecaps that will fit a 750ml Champagne bottle? The standard beer cap won't work.Thanks, Jon
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Hi Jon.First off, are SURE the standard cap won't fit? We've found that a bench capper will apply them, but due to the curve of the neck area, a double-handled "wing" type capper can't grip it properly, and won't do the job. Only the bench capper will do it.There are probably several different styles of champagne bottles out there . . .
4/30/2008 – Hi! I'm a crafter looking for "small" or "mini" caps. I call my one inch bottlecaps "regular size", so I'm looking for 1/2 inch or so bottlecaps for crafting. Thanks for your reply.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Nope. We have nothing like that. Sorry.
1/28/2008 – When it comes to plain bottle caps (not the oxy caps) what's the best way to sanitize - boiling?... vodka?... Idophor?...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Boiling is a BAD idea. It can damage the seals. Vodka is too good for THAT purpose. It's for drinking!Iodophor is ideal. Easy, quick, and inexpensive. I wouldn't use anything else.
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!
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 . . .
11/24/2007 – I'd like to buy one pound of as many colors as possible (one pound per color). Can I order that?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you can order one pound of each color. No problem. Simply add a color to your cart, choose another color and add to your cart, and so on...
9/18/2007 – Do you have silver or white bottle caps?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Our supply changes regularly. What we have is listed on the web for that product.
8/21/2007 – DO YOUR SODA BOTTLE CAPS HAVE CORK OR PLASTIC? I PREFER CORK
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The liners, I presume? They are plastic. Haven't seen cork in years. Doubt if they are available anywhere...
8/3/2007 – I wish I could tell you I'm using these caps for my beer but I have 6-1/2 oz Dr. Pepper bottles.. are all caps alike...same ones fit on DP bottles as well as beer.???rookie needs to know...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Probably the same yes. I wouldn't vouch for some, however, like European bottles etc. There are LOTS of bottles made in the world, so I wouldn't want to declare that our caps fit ALL bottles...
7/26/2007 – Hi. Are the underside of the bottle caps all gold or do they match the color on the outside ie: silver/silver, red/red, etc.?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, they do not match the color on the outside. They have a plastic liner and are a plain gold/gray color.
7/7/2007 – Any chance of getting other colors such as white, yellow, or orange?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: From time to time, we get these. What we have, we post on the website.
11/11/2006 – Are the inside of your gold bottlecaps also a gold color? Thank you for your time.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, plastic liner is typically gray.
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 10-6:30 M-F and 9:30-5 on Saturdaysand 11:00am-3pm on Sundays
11/4/2006 – Do you sell crimped crowns with cork on the inside? If so, could you give me a price for an order of about 1,000 to 5.000, or tell me where I might find this information.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. Haven't seen caps with cork on the inside in probably 20 years. I doubt if they are made anymore.
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.
9/2/2006 – HOW MANY CAPS ARE IN A POUND?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It varies with the caps, but figure 165-200 as an average.
3/17/2006 – Will these caps fit the old 12 oz coca-cola bottles?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I'm pretty sure they will, yes.
1/23/2006 – Do your bottle caps have anything printed underneath? or are they plain where the plastic liner is?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, they are plain on the underside.
9/1/2005 – can you use twist off bottles for your batch of brew?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You really should use the pry off type bottles. The bottles themselves are stronger, and better suited to homebrew. Our caps and cappers are all the pry-off type. Twist-off caps and bottles require specialized equipment that is not practical (or desirable) for home use.
7/30/2005 – I see in your question and answer section that you have added bottle cap colors in the past (red for instance). Do you expect to add other colors to your bottle cap supply in the near future?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: When we can get them, yes. There are only certain colors available, however.
7/30/2005 – Someone mentioned they purchased black caps from here, but I don't see that color as an option on the ordering page. Is it still available?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We often have black colored bottle caps. They appear on the website when they are in stock, and don't when we are out of them.
7/29/2005 – Can I get caps without the plastic lining on the inside?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. They ALL have plastic liners. That's what make them seal.
6/14/2005 – I want to purchase bottle caps to make necklaces that require pictures to be glued to the inside of the bottle cap. Can your bottle caps be used for this purpose?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we sell TONS of them to "crafters" for that purpose; and lots of others...windchimes, trivets, greeting cards, scrapbooking, you name it.
5/19/2005 – Do these caps fit the old quart soda bottles that had cork inside? We want to make home made root beer and need caps for our bottles. We do have a capper.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Probably. We don't sell them (the bottles), so I can't verify that. There may be some different sizes out there.Most home soda pop making now is done with plastic soda pop bottles, like the kind you buy at the store, with screw off caps. The 2-liter size is very common, and if you are buying soda now, just clean them up and use them for . . .
5/19/2005 – Years ago we made and bottled Hires Root beer using cleaned soda pop bottles. Want to try it again. Your caps fit soda bottles as well as beer bottles?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If you mean GLASS pop bottles, then yes, probably. We don't sell them, so I can't verify that.Most home soda pop making now is done with plastic soda pop bottles, like the kind you buy at the store, with screw off caps. The 2-liter size is very common, and if you are buying soda now, just clean them up and use them for your home made soda. . . .
4/30/2005 – I'm one of those crafters looking for bottle caps. I see that you have the gold with the oxygen seal, are they a shine gold or a mat gold? Do you have them without the special seal?I saw someone wanted some that were flattened. I like your hammer response, but that wouldn't quite work. For your future crafters asking such a question . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The oxy caps are more of a bronze/gold color, with a metallic finish. No, they only come in oxy liners. No different to look at, it's just that they have a special chemical to absorb oxygen.Point on flattening noted....we stand corrected. We just don't know what a Sizzix machine is. We're brewers, not crafters!
3/28/2005 – Do you offer white caps? I am looking for marroon, white, black and gold. I see you have gold and black but how about the other two? Thank you!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not regularly, sorry. We often have other colors, but availability is the key. Once in a while we have white. Have never seen maroon.
3/19/2005 – Exactly what material is the bottle cap made from (aluminum, steel, etc...)?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They are made of steel, with a thin plastic layer on the inside to help it seal against the bottles.
3/9/2005 – I am looking for a variety of colors do you have any more coming? such as yellow, purple, pink, orange. if you can get these colors please let me know.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There was a time when we carried bottle caps...plain and simple, and they were all gold in color. Beer brewers didn't care WHAT color they used. We were delighted when we could offer 3-4 different colors, and now were up to about 8. Just a little history...now the "crafters and scrappers" buy most of our caps. In answer to your question . . .
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. The cap itself has a plastic liner. This is the pry-off type cap.
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!
1/27/2005 – Are these caps crimped(been put through a crimping machine)?Or uncrimped? Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Uncrimped. They are normally crimped when installed onto the bottles.
1/19/2005 – Approximately how many bottle caps come in a 1 pound package?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: About 200, give or take.
1/18/2005 – what's the difference between cork-lined caps and the ones you sell? do you need a different bottle capper for different caps?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I'm not aware of any cork-line caps being manufactured anymore. They used to be common, but I haven't seen any for many years. We sell metal caps with plastic liners on the inside. No, they don't require a different capper.
11/17/2004 – Do you have red bottle caps? What other colors can you get??
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We have a variety of colors. Sometimes we are out of one or another, but we usually have red bottle caps.You can select the color from the drop down menu for that product.
11/13/2004 – I'm planning on trying methode champenoise for the first time. Do these bottles take the crown cap the is installed during secondary fermentation? Do you carry the caps?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, these bottles accept crown caps. Here is a link to the caps:
10/19/2004 – I was wondering if these come in any other colors than what appears to be gold. I'm doing a holiday batch and was hoping to get red, green, or silver as well.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Standard bottle caps are available in those colors, but the oxygen barrier caps are only available in one color (kinda a bronze color).
9/12/2004 – I am looking for caps to make beer bottles into salt and pepper shakers and can be customized.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We have the caps, in various colors. Customize away!
9/10/2004 – I am looking for flattened bottle caps , Do you sell them or can you tell me where I might be able to purchase them?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No. We sell new caps for capping bottles. Perhaps what you need is a hammer!
7/20/2004 – Do your caps have a plastic liner?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, they do.
7/18/2004 – Can I purchase a mixed bag of caps?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have now added a "mixed colors" option for this item.
6/27/2004 – Do you sell uncrowned caps?....I mean the metal disk of the cap. do you sell this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: These have no "crowns", so to speak. They are called crown caps becauase they are manufactured by Crown Distributing. They are plain metallic caps or different colors.
5/24/2004 – I am looking for pastel colors for my caps...any way I can get pastel purple, pink, or blue?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. I have never seen those colors offered.
5/4/2004 – Someone told me you have beer bottle caps that are colors. example: burgundy I can't find them on your web site. They said you get 100 in a package for a dollar or so.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We do have about 6 different colors of beer bottle caps. Here is a link to them:
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. A link to the caps is provided below.
11/10/2003 – Can these caps be used on the newer pry off type bottles sold now? I notice they are not made from glass as thick as the old bottles I grew up with. Will they hold up to the pressure of my bench capper?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. No problem.
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
10/28/2003 – Can you custom print your caps? If so, what would the pricing be for 1 or 2 colors?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry.
6/30/2003 – Can these caps be used on standard screw-off type beer bottles? Like the kind you get when you buy beer in the grocery store? If not, do you offer a screw-off type beer cap?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We don't recommend screw-off bottles for two reasons: First the caps MAY seal, and they may NOT, using these bottles. Some people use them anyway, but occasionally they get a bad seal.Second, screw-off bottles are often thinner (not as strong) as pry-off type bottles, and you run a small risk of damage.Pry-off bottles are not that . . .
