Maris Otter variety from Hugh Baird. A true British pale ale
malt. 2.5 Lov. The lightest roast of barley malt, these grains are
kilned at just hot enough temperatures to drive out moisture
without damaging the enzymes within the kernels.

11/17/2009 – I have a recipe that calls for "4 lbs. Otters 2-row". it is the very first item on the recipe. It is for a Boston LagerIf it helps I can give you the rest of the ingredients.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Marris Otter is a specific kind of pale ale malt. We have it. Here is a link to that product
10/26/2009 – What is the shelf life of whole grain? How about crushed grain?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It depends on the conditions of your shelf, of course! Cool and dry conditions are best.From a practal standpoint, grains can be stored uncrushed, in unopened bags for a year or maybe even more at room temperature. If it is crushed, perhaps 1/2 of that.All grains should be stored away from moisture, sealed, and especialy protected . . .
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!
8/29/2007 – Where can I find a table that tells me which grains need to be mashed and which grains can just be soaked and rinsed?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Best "table" I know of is our website categories. We put grains that need to be mashed in our "Brewing Grains" category, and those that only require steeping into our "Specialty Grains" category.
3/14/2007 – How long will cracked grains keep before their quality begins to diminish? For example, if I purchase them from you on Sunday, can I expect them to be perfectly fine to use the following Sunday? (I have some travel to do leading up to a brew day.)
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Much longer than that, provided they are kept dry. Some breweries actually crush their grain weeks, or even months ahead of when they need it.
11/29/2006 – I have a question regarding an American Wheat Ale I want to make. I want to use English Pale Ale malt along with 40 to 50% Wheat Malt. However, many German and American wheat beer recipes call for Pilsner or Domestic Two Row. What are the implications of using the more malty English malt with the wheat instead of the lighter malt? Will I get . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No problem whatsoever. Same fermentables, similar enzymes etc. It will probably be just a little darker, is all.
11/9/2006 – Does the American 2-row contain less enzymes than the British pale ale?? and thusly, which would have the better conversion potential when mashing?Mucho gusto,Craig on San Juan Island
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Perhaps a little less, not much. Both have sufficient enzymes to complete the conversion, and have comparable extraction rates.If you are after a naturally high enzyme grain. try 6-row.
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
9/28/2006 – What about shipping bulk grain?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: What about it? How much? To where? The devil is in the details. Grain is heavy, and can be expensive to ship.
8/17/2006 – I just recieved my first order, evrything was in order. Thanks.My question is: How much Brown Malt can be used in a Mild? Does it have enough enzymes to convert itself? Should I use Mild ale malt with a smaller proportion of Brown malt?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would not go more than 2-3 lbs per 5 gallons in a mild. Use Marris Ottem Pale Ale malt for the balance of the recipe. Yes, there are SOME enzymes left in brown malt, and it will convert under ideal circumstances, but it is best to mix with an enzyme rich base malt, like Pale Ale malt.
12/3/2005 – I've been looking into replicating a few of my favorite commercial beers, and I find things like "lager malt" and "mild ale malt" that I don't see at your site. Is this the recipe book publishing company trying to push an affiliated product on me, and are there appropriate substitutes?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Those are both kind of obsolete terms. I'll bet that book is an old one. Yes, there are perfectly good substitutes:Lager malt = pilsner malt, like German Pilsner Malt. Very light in color.Mild ale malt = Pale ale malt, like British Pale Ale Malt. A little more color is all.Actually, good old fashioned 2-row or 6-row can be substituted . . .
9/2/2005 – I am looking for whole grains with hull. Do you have this option available?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. Each grain has an "option" for uncrushed or crushed grains. It is selectable on our website.
4/21/2005 – where do i go to buy bulk grain for my grain mill?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No need to go anywhere. We sell grain in bulk (usually 50 or 55 lb bags). Here is a link to our brewing grains.
4/4/2005 – Whats the best place to buy grain by bulk. 50 or 55 lbs sacks.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here. Follow these two links. Once is for specialty grains, and one is for brewing grains, like 2-row etc. 50 and 55 lb sacks are available. Pricing depends on quantity ordered.
4/1/2005 – I am new to homebrewing and am trying to follow a recipe. Is this what they are referring to as "pale malt." Do you recommend 2-row or 6-row for a beginner (trying to make a stout)?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, this is usually what they mean, if they are referring to grains. 2-row is recommended.There is also a pale ale malt that can be used, and may be more "traditional" in a stout.
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!
12/25/2004 – What do you recommend for storage of bulk grains? Is sealed in a food-grade pail in a cool basement ok?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, that will work just fine. The main thing is to keep them dry, and away from moisture.
1/2/2004 – How do I order grains in multiples less than a pound? ( i.e. 3/4lb, 12oz etc)
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We've now fixed our website. Click on "Options" and then you can select either pounds OR ounces! Remember, 1 pound = 16 ounces
11/16/2003 – HOW ARE LARGE QUANTITIES (of Grain) (50#) + PACKAGED AND SHIPPED?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Nornally, grain is sent in the original 50 lb. sacks (tough paper, w/plastic liner inside). For a single 50 lb. bag, we would put the bag into a larger cardboard box and ship it by FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery.If you are talking about larger quantities than that, like 250 lb or more, we would simply put the bags onto a pallet, and . . .
7/17/2003 – How do you package grain for shipment?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Typically, we heat seal it into clear plastic bags. If needed they are "double bagged" just in case.You can have it crushed, or uncrushed. We can either mix the grains together or package them separately. These are the "options" you see on the right side of the screen.
