8/7/2013 – Please tell me all the ingredients I need to make wine. Is there a ready made mix I could use.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Hi Gigi. Glad you found us. Gotta tell you that your question is a little vague. We're here to help, we just need a little more information. It's like someone who asks "all the ingredients to bake a cake, is there a ready made mix".... ? There are many ways to bake a cake, many different types of cake, and ways to go about it.SO, we . . .
3/5/2012 – Do I have to buy the ingredients necessary to make the wine seperate from the wine base kit?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. Other ingredients required are: acid blend, yeast nutrient, pectic enzyme, campden tablets or bisulfite, potassium sorbate and wine yeast.If you are after an "all-in-one" fruit wine kit, we have those too. See link below.
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
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!
1/3/2008 – Could these sweet fruit wine kits be bottled in beer bottles with priming sugar to create a sparkling wine cooler?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No. The sweetening/flavoring pack also contain potassium sorbate to prevent re-fermentation of the sugar.
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
10/2/2006 – I would like to give this kit as a Christmas gift. Is there a freshness concern? If so what would be a good time frame to purchase it.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, freshness is not a concern. It is shelf-stable at room temperature.
12/29/2005 – How long do these take to make? Do they need to ferment as long as other wines? Do they need to be aged?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They take approximately 30 days before bottling. That is similar to most of our varietal wine kits, and much less than some....much depends on fermentation temperature, of course.Aging is not really necessary with these fruit wine kits. They are really quite good when you bottle them. A little aging doesn't HURT, of course, but most people . . .
9/8/2005 – Fruit wines! wow. Would like to try, but 30 bottles is a lot. If I got the cranberry kit, could I divide by 6 each ingredient and make 1 gallon? I have a 2 gallon glass primary and 1 gallon carboy ready to use, but don't want to make so much. What do you think?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I don't think 30 bottles IS a lot. Consider what you use, what become gifts, etc. Remember, you don't have to drink it all immediately. With age, it becomes even better.No, I wouldn't divide up the ingredients in that way. With the fruit wine kits, the juice etc comes in a plastic bag that doesn't lend itself to sealing and resealing. . . .
8/9/2005 – I purchased a blackberry merlot and green apple mist kits can you tell me if these are a sweeter wine? On the 1 to 10 scale, 1 being dry, what would these wines be when finished...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, these wines are quite sweet. I would give them na 8
6/16/2005 – my wife is korean and we are wanting to start making our wine. her mother taught her to just add sugar and let it age.is this one way of making it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not if you want good wine, no. Why not make GOOD wine? Use one of our varietal wine (ingredient) kits, like those that are offered with this equipment kit, and you will make good wine! We have a large selection, if there is a particular type of wine you enjoy, we probably have it.
4/12/2005 – I have ordered the 6 gallon kit with the strawberry riesling mist. I read that the fruit wines are lower in alcohol. What is the average alcohol content of the fruit wines? If I want to raise it to the level of your other whites, should I condense the batch down to 5 gallons, or add pounds of sugar? and how many?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They run approximately 8-9% alcohol when made per the instructions (6 U.S. gallons).You could raise the alcohol level either way (condense to 5 gallons or add additional sugar). If you condense to 5 gallons, that will raise it to about 9.6-10.8% alcohol by volume. If you add sugar at primary fermentation, you would need to add about 2 . . .
12/30/2004 – I have tasted a "fruit mist" style kit that a friend had made and it is great..we did notice however that the alcohol content was very low. Are all of the fruit kits like that? We are starting this up as a hobby and are curious...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, typically the fruit wine kits like this are lower in alcohol and meant to be enjoyed as a cooler or "mist" style wine on hot days. There is no reason why you can't make it higher in alcohol, however, if that is your preference. To raise the alcohol level by 1%, add an additional pound of sugar at the start of fermentation. To raise it . . .
3/4/2004 – OK, now what? If I buy the complete kit what else do I need to start making great wine? I don't want to wait to get the kit and have to read the book and then find I have to order other things and then have to wait. Tell me all the things I should order now so when it all comes I can pick up your book and read and make. . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The Complete Wine Equipment Kit (6 Gallon) is really quite complete...just select a type of wine (ingredients) that you like to go with it (from Varietal Wine Kits, either red or white as you prefer). Yes, there is a book included, but many people just charge ahead using the instruction sheet supplied with the ingredients. They are really . . .
1/18/2004 – What actualy comes in the fruit wine kits? It says shipping is 19 lb, is it a full winemaking kit with carboy and all the tools needed? The description of the products just say what type of wine they make and how it will taste, but not exactly what is included in the package. Im particularly interested in the Green Apple wine kit.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It contains the juice (concentrate), sweetening and flavoring pack, yeast, clarifiers and stabilizers, and complete instructions to make that particular fruit wine, in other words, the ingredients. It does not include the hardware to do make it, like carboys etc.We recommend the Complete Wine Equipment Kit (6 gallon) for these wines. Here . . .
12/5/2003 – What are the basic steps on how to make fruit wines?What are the main ingredients do we need to use?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Fruit wines are tasty, and fun to make. We have several fruit wine kits where most of the work has been done for you, or you can start with available fruit, like plums, berries etc. Obviously doing it this way is more involved, but the two processes are similar once the juice and flavors have been extracted. Making wine from your available . . .
7/4/2003 – -first time wine maker, experienced brewer. Basic questions probably;1-How many wine bottles are need to make one kit?2-Is there a secondary fermentation stage?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1- You will need between 25 and 30 standard wine bottles per kit. 25 if you make this into a 5 gallon batch, and 30 if you make it into a 6 gallon batch (as it was designed). 2- Yes, secondary fermentation in a glass carboy is recommended.
