1/12/2010 – Will this cap work with the larger 1/2" Racking Cane?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's designed for the smaller racking cane, but I see no reason why you can't drill out one of the holes to a larger size.
9/4/2009 – I didn't see on the site anywhere saying the diameter of tubing that these universal carboy caps use. Thank you.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Typically they are used with a standard racking cane inserted thru one of the holes. The racking cane is 3/8" od, but most people stretch a 5/16" hose over the top to make a tight fit.
9/24/2008 – Will this cap fit a 5 gallon water jug such as a Ozarka bottle? It has a 2 1/4 outside diameter.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We've seen too many different plastic water carboys to say for sure. Ozarka isn't a brand we are familiar with. Different manufacturers often have (slightly) different sizes. We can't guarantee it will make an airtight seal.Sorry.
7/25/2008 – I dont exactly have a "carboy". what i do have is a glass jar, greatly resembling a carboy that is roughly 5 gallons in size. I wanted to get this carboy cap, and use my jar as a secondary, but im not sure if this will fit airtight. The measurements of the opening are(ID-1in and OD-2in). Will this, 2-spout cap, fit airtight on my jar?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: To get an "airtight fit" requires a pretty good match. I wouldn't count on that, in the case of an unusual jar size. I would use a stopper that fits on the inside. It SOUNDS like you are after a #5.5 rubber stopper. Measure carefully, and go to the stopper product below.There is a chart there showing the appropriate stopper for different size openings.
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!
3/15/2005 – I would like to filter hops, fruit etc. while I siphon into my fermenter. Would any of your screens work well when attached to a siphon hose? Do you have any other suggestions outside of a tapped kettle connected to a bazooka screen?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The real problem will be getting the stuff thru your siphon hose. If you are willing to pour the wort:In our Brewing Accessories category we have a variety of straining bags that might well serve this purpose.There are also funnels with straining screens that can be used.
12/14/2004 – can i attatch an airlock onto this cap?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it fits right in.
5/23/2004 – Will this cap fit on 19ltr.(5.2gal.)plastic purified water carboys and can a wine theif be introduced through one of the spouts?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We've seen too many different plastic water carboys to say for sure. Different manufacturers often have different sizes, so without knowing the dimensions, I'd have to say "probably not".No, a wine thief will not fit thru either of the spouts. The holes in the spout are perhaps 3/8" inch in diamter (or so). A wine thief is at least an inch or so in diameter.
11/4/2003 – I would think that blowing into the tube would expose the beer to bacterias from your mouth.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sure, a little. Let's face it, tho, anytime you open the vessel up, some bacteria COULD sneak in. The question is, does it matter? I contend that it doesn't very much. If your beer or wine is still fermenting somewhat, it is giving off CO2, and will quickly purge any air from your mouth. Also, if it is done fermenting, it should have sufficient alcohol content to protect itself.I have NEVER heard of a beer or wine becoming contaminated in this way.
6/9/2003 – If you are supposed to blow on the second spout to start the siphon, wouldn't that introduce wild yeast into the brew?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, but that is usually not significant. You can do much worse, and still end with a good beer or wine. Some people go so far as to gargle first.
