3/18/2008 – I have "hard" well water. We don't use a softener or treatment device. Can we make great beer without buying spring water? Thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sure. Some beer styles NEED hard water, like British ales, German beers. We sell a lot of "hardeners" (Burton water salts, gypsum etc) so that home brewers can replicate those styles. There are a few beers like pilsners, that you may want to use soft water for, however.

12/25/2005 – Regarding boiling RO water (reverse osmosis) - Dave Miller's book, The complete Handbook of Home Brewing, recomends boiling brewing water for 15 minutes to decarbonate. I have done this in the past( though not with this water supply) and have seen quite a bit of white residue in the bottom of one of those black enamel canning kettles. . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If it is true RO water, it should have few, if any salts. No sure about yours, however. You can probably obtain an analysis of your water from the local water department.Even so, I see no need to pre-boil your water...Again, if the style of beer is a pilsner (typcially made with soft water), it should be just fine. If you want a Brit . . .
12/24/2005 – I live at the end of a long pipe, Key West, and must buy my water from a purified water company (reverse osmosis, etc.) should I boil for fifteen minutes my brewing water? Also, I bought some Burton water salts. How much should I add to five gallons? - as I assume there is little if any salts in this water.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, I am familiar with that pipe. Wish I was there!I am of the opinion that the entire batch should be boiled, i.e. use a large enought pot to do that. I am assuming here that you mean you are adding water to a "partial boil"...in other words a concentrated wort (brewpot is less than 5 gallons). I see no benefit in boiling the added water . . .
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!
12/5/2003 – What does adding gypsum(hardening water) do for your beer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If you are trying to clone, or duplicate, a particular beer (particularly British and German ales), it is necessary to harden the water. Those countries typically have a high mineral content in their water. Burton Water Salts are also used for this purpose.
