11/18/2014 – I tried making the orange soda years ago, and it had flavor but not carbonation. is there a good sugar to use and for the champange yeast which is recommended for the best results?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Years ago we did an experiment on this. Regular table sugar should work just fine as long as you store the bottles at about room temperature prior to refrigerating and drinking...BUT the addition of about 10% (or more) of dextrose (corn sugar) will shorten the time needed for carbonation to develop.
9/13/2014 – Hi, what is the difference with corn sugar dextrose and primary sugar dextrose?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: None. It is exactly the same product.
5/17/2010 – what is your phone number?

8/28/2009 – I am brewing my first beer using the Mr. Beer kit and so far things seem to be going well. I thought next I would like to try a Munton's American Style Light Beer. For the 2.5 gal Mr. Beer fermenter would I use half of the Munton's American Style Light Beer can? Would I just add an amount of corn sugar if so how much? I've been having . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We're not big fans of Mr Beer, BUTYou could use just 1/2 a can of Munton's extract along with about 1 lb of corn sugar.We have the extract and the corn sugar.
7/15/2009 – I have used White Pure Cane Granulated Sugar for the additional 2 pounds. Can I use that with this Malt or would you recommend Corn Sugar?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would definately recommend using1) Dry malt extract, or 2) corn sugarfor the additional 2 pounds. Either one will improve your beer. Dry malt extract (DME) will add a richer, malty flavor. Corn sugar will be lighter in color, but not as malty.For my tastes, I go with malt extract. Especially with an IPA which has lots of hops . . .
2/28/2009 – I have never tried corn sugar for the other two pounds needed for the kit, what is the taste difference? I usally use dry malt.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Your beer will taste less "malty" and have more pronounced hop bitterness. Some would say that corn sugar will produce a cider-like "twang", if that makes sense. It's hard to describe flavors...Your beer will also be lighter in color and have slightly more alcohol.
2/7/2009 – Can this sugar be used for bottling?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it is very good for that. Carbonates quickly and leaves little residue.
1/2/2009 – what is included here? what else would i need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: As far as ingredients, you'll also need to add some fermentables. We like light dry malt extract (3 lbs) but you can also use corn sugar. Reserve about a cup for when you bottle. You'll also need some water...Standard brewing equipment is used (brewpot, fermenter, siphon hose, capper, caps etc).
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!
5/19/2007 – I have two questions:1) I currently add 2 lbs of sugar to my mix. How much DME would I use to replace the 2 lbs of sugar?2) I use 1/2 tsp of sugar to prime the bottles. How much DME would I use to prime a 16 oz. bottle?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You don't say what kind of sugar. Even different sugars have different ratios. For instance, you would use more corn sugar than table sugar to get the same sweetness/alcohol/carbonation level. Therefore I can only give an estimate of the ratio of sugar to DME.1) Approximately 2.5 lbs DME2) I believe that priming bottles individually . . .
3/19/2007 – Is it best to go 50/50 with DME and corn sugar, or all DME. IF I use all DME in the cooper canadian blonde kit, what would the alcohol content be? I was under the impression that the more sugar used the higher the alcohol content.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For more of a malt flavor and body, use 100% malt extract. Both malt extract and corn sugar ARE sugars, i.e. both will raise the alcohol content. Approximately 0.75% alcohol for DME, and 1% for corn sugar (in 5 gallons).
11/11/2006 – Can I use 2 cans of the coopers malt extract (stout) to yeild 5 gal.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you can do that. It will be extra hoppy and strong, is all. To stay more "true to style" you would normally add about 2 lbs of corn sugar or dry malt extract (preferred).
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
10/22/2006 – aside from the 2 lbs of sugar, should i get a little extra for priming?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, I would. Maybe get a 3 lb bag for both purposes.OR get two pounds, and have us send you a pre-measured priming sugar for 5 gallons. See links below.
7/10/2006 – I came across a recipe that requires "Brewer's Corn Syrup". It stated that this is the same as the corn syrup that you purchse at a grocery store, but does not have the Vanila flavoring. I am having a hard time finding this, and curious if you know where I can?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Likely a very old recipe. Such a thing is not sold anymore to my knowledge. This is really just corn sugar in a little water. We have corn sugar, of couse, in the dry form. Here is a link to that product
3/28/2005 – Do these cans come with the recipes on the label? if not,how do we get the recipes. Can we buy the corn sugar from you? It has been a long time since I made beer.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, they do, either on the can, or in an insert under the lid. Yes, we have corn sugar too.
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!
1/16/2004 – I want to use corn sugar to increase the alcohol content of my brew. I realize that it is a very simple easily fermentable sugar. When during the boil should it be added? I know that is does not need to break down like the sugars in the malt extract. That makes me think it would be added partway through or at the end.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It can be added at any time during the boil. Boil time is not critical...just long enough to sanitize is all.
12/23/2003 – For each pound of dextrose added,what is the increase in alcohol percent?(1,2,3%...?)
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For a 5 gallon batch, each pound of corn sugar (dextrose) adds very close to 1% alcohol by volume. This corresponds to an increase in specific gravity by 0.007
11/6/2003 – Where do I purchase the brewing sugar for the first fermentation for this product?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Corn sugar is in the Beer Additives categoy. or you can click below.If you prefer to use dry malt extract, that is also available and will often produce a better beer.
9/28/2003 – Is this the same Dextrose that is used for weighlifting?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it is. Same stuff.We also have maltodextrin, that is used to "bulk up".
8/6/2003 – Is there a difference between corn and cane sugar as far as adding it to wine?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, a few...First off, if a recipe calls for 1 lb. of cane sugar, you need to use about 1.2 lb to get the equivalent amount of corn sugar. If the recipe specifies 1 lb of corn sugar, use 0.8 lb of cane sugar. This is due to the different structure of the two sugars themselves. Corn sugar is dextrose, a very simple sugar that is not quite . . .
