5/15/2008 – Can I have the thermometer installed with a spigot on brew kettle?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you can do that.To make it all work, you will neet the spigot kit:as well as the thru-wall fitting for the thermometer:We also have the thru-wall fittings in stainless steel if you like.We are happy to install them both for you when you order the pot from us!
4/1/2008 – I am looking to begin homebrewing and I plan on doing both extract and grain brewing. I would rather not have to invest in some stuff now and then have to "upgrade" later, so my question is what would you recommend as the optimal setup and how much would it cost? For example, should I get a brewpot with a spigot? Thanks! Your site is really . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The question "optimal setup" is a tough one to answer. It can be different for every brewer. Things like desired budget, batch size and desired beer styles make a single answer impossible.Stepping up to all-grain requires some equipment, most likely a larger brewpot. To ME (maybe not to you!), it is easier and more productive to make 10 . . .
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!
12/28/2007 – Your site is very informative and I appreciate all the info, questions and responses that are provided. I am a complete beginner looking to brew with extract but would eventually like to brew with all grain. What brew pot should I start with? Which Pot should I purchase for all grain brewing? Do you recommend the spigot and thermometer for . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If you intend to stay with 5 gallon batches, this (8 gallon gallon model) is good for both extract and all-grain. The reason I question this is because often, brewers will "step up" to making 10 gallon batches when they do all-grain. The all-grain brewing process takes longer, and therefor many people like to make MORE beer to offset the . . .
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).
8/22/2007 – Found a clean (Legal paper trail) beer Keg. Ill skip the spigot, but I am considering the brewmometer. would the brewmometer tolerate immersion? I have lots of cooper tubbing (Plumber Friends) and can construct a wort chiller but would like to use an ice water bath as well. Using a modified 55 gallon drum. (Shortened)
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The STEM of the brewmometer is designed for immersion (it is stainless steel), but the dial face is not.
4/25/2007 – What is the correct equation for determining A.B.V. (alcohol by volume). Do you divide the difference between starting and ending gravity by 8 or by 7.36? I see both numbers in the answers.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: By taking the difference between your starting and ending gravity (in points) you then divide by 7.63 That will get you very close indeed.For example, The OG measured at 1.080, and the beer stopped fermentation with a FG measurement of 1.018. The difference is 62 "points". 62 divided by 7.63 = 8.12% acohol by volume.Another way is . . .
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
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 . . .
1/20/2006 – How does the BrewMometer stainless steel thermometer connect to the brewpot? I want to order a brewpot also. Do I need to order these items together so you can install it? Also, do you recommend it for beginners? Also, I am going to order the spigot, do I need a certain type of connection piece or hose to go with it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Recommendation on brewpot: Get as large a pot as you can manage. To connect the BrewMometer you'll also need to order a Thru-Wall Fitting (we'll install it for you!). Here is a link to that product.You could order just a spigot, but if you want it installed into your brewpot, order the Brewpot Spig Kit (it includes the Thru-Wall Fitting . . .
10/17/2005 – Regarding the Brewmometer, can you install the thru-wall fitting along with the Brewmometer? Thanks.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Into one of our brewpots, yes, we can do it with either a brass thru wall fitting or a stainless steel. Your choice. Both are available on the website. Just make a note at checkout that you would like it installed. If you have a preferred location, let us know as well, otherwise we just install it where it makes sense to us.
9/8/2005 – I am planning on buying the 15 gallon brew pot with the spigot installed. I am hoping that your company could also install a thermometer as well. Can you?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely. Just order a thru-wall fitting (we have them in both brass and stainless), and tell us where to install it. Not a problem. We have the thermometers too, of course.
7/19/2005 – Can you guys mount this as well as a spigot to a brewpot that I would presumably order from you?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely. You will also need to order a Thru-Wall fitting (either brass or stainless steel) as well, however. The thermometer just screws into the fitting. Below are the links to those items:Yes, we can do the same thing with a spigot. No problem.
7/9/2005 – Can a BrewMometer Stainless Steel Thermometer attach to a 1/2" Thru wall fitting? And if so where would the best postion on the pot be?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it screws right in. The most popular position is about mid-way up, on the same side as the spigot (if there is one).
7/5/2005 – I am just starting in home brewing, so I appoligize for this question. I am a gizmo junky and don't mind buying the bits to make things easy. My questions is about brew kettles. If I aquire kettle with a thermometer and a valve, can I use an immersion chiller? (Will it still fit in the pot? Is ther any reason why I should not go to a local . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Your question is a tricky one, only because pots and chillers come in all different sizes. I've seen pots that may not easily fit a chiller if they had a thermometer installed. I know if you bought one of our pots and one of our chillers you wouldn't have a problem. Our immersion chillers are about 10 inches in diameter. The only reason you . . .
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!
