12/20/2014 – I am considering purchasing 2 NOTG kits, making 1 per the instructions and adding spices to the other. I am considering whole nutmeg or mace, cinnamon sticks, a couple of cloves, and maybe a little candied ginger. Any recommendations for the amounts for the spices? I am aiming for subtle spice flavor rather than strong. Thank you!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sounds like a good plan, but my advice to go LIGHTLY on the spices. Especially the nutmeg and ginger. I like both of those spices, but I've never had a mead that was improved by them. As for quantities, I would go with perhaps 2 or 3 sticks of cinnamon in the primary fermenter, and then perhaps one more in the secondary fermenter. A little . . .

4/29/2008 – I would like to make a blueberry beer for this summer and was thinking I would use to West Coast Blonde kit to do so. Do you recommend any other kit to use? I have been researching the best way to make a blueberry beer and have come across a couple different variations as to when to add the blueberries during the process. Do you have any . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, our West Coast Blonde Kit would be an excellent base for a fruit beer. If you like wheat beers, our Wizard's Wheat is also a nice choice.As far as fruit flavors, there are really two options for making a fruit beer: artificial flavorings and natural fruit. Using artificial flavorings is actually a pretty good way to go. They are . . .

1/4/2005 – I am making a fruit pale ale. I have 2 questions. I am wondering what to add to my wort? Should it be real fruit, extract, puree, or anything else I have neglected. Also I have read in "The Joy of Homebrewing" that the Krausen, if not removed, from the primary fermenter can create a bitter taste. Is it worth exposing my beer to the . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1) Fruit should not be boiled, but puree or raw fruit can be added to the primary fermenter. Alternatively, you can add extract flavoring after all fermentation is complete. This allows you to "add to taste" just prior to bottling or kegging. Below is a link to the flavorings: 2) We do not advocate removing krausen, unless it makes you . . .
10/19/2004 – I am already planning on making a beer for Christmas and flavoring it with cinnamon and nutmeg. However, if I wanted to use grated ginger in a beer recipe, would it be a good match with something like a Canadian Ale? I want something light and crisp that would be further enhanced by the spice of ginger.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we think ginger makes a nice addition, cinnamon too! HOWEVER...our advice is to be careful with nutmeg. The nutmeg seems to get more intense over time. Even a small amount seems to be too much, so use with caution.
