1/3/2011 – Are there any burners that work with natural gas? I can fix an outlet in my garage with a quick connect if it will work with a burner for natural gas. Will natural gas give the same heat as propane or should I just get a propane tank and burner?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, there are burners that work with natural gas. They take a different oriface size, and are typically not as hot as propane.We now offer a Natural Gas Conversion for our Blichmann Floor Standing Burners. See links below for that burner and options.

4/1/2008 – I am wondering is it ok to use this for 5 gallon stainless steel pot. And, do the gas tanks that come with bbqs fit these connections. How do I know what connections will fit.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it will be fine with a 5 gallon brewpot.It comes with a common BBQ type fitting.
3/27/2008 – I am new to brewing and will be cooking with an outdoor burner. My question is do i cook with my kettle uncovered outside? or do I keep a lid on it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: In my opinion, it makes little difference. I like to leave it on during heat-up, and remove it for the boil. This is just to speed the heat up process, and watch for boilovers while it is boiling. And to smell the wonderful stuff.
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.

11/16/2007 – This might seem like a random question, but here goes.....Does the underside of these Bayou Classic burners (or other models) get really hot? I am debating between using steel or wood to build platforms for a brewing sculpture. I would have a burner on the top tier for the HLT and the bottom tier for the brew kettle, probably not one on . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You are wise to be concerned. Indeed, it CAN get quite hot on the underside of the burner. How hot? It depends on how hot you run the burner, how long, and how big of a batch/brewpot you are using. A wood platform is probably ok, but it doesn't hurt to put a thin sheet of steel over the wood. Good insurance, if you ask me! Inexpensive . . .
11/6/2006 – I plan on purchasing the Deluxe Brewing Equipment Kit with a 16 gallon brew kettle. What would you recommend for boiling outdoors? I was thinking of a portable gas stove of some type?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Definitely recommend cooking it up outside, especially with batches over 5 gallons.See our Outdoor Propane Cookers (link below).
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?

10/14/2006 – I have about 4.5 gal of my wort in my big brew pot and my electric stove on max. Like this I can only get the wort to 205F degrees. is it critical that it is "boiling" to achieve desired results?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It sounds like you have a really wimpy stove. I would get an outdoor cooker.You will certainly make beer, but you will lose some of the disirable qualities. Hops need to be boiled to extract all of the bitterness, and malt needs to be boiled to help break down the sugars.
3/14/2005 – How big of a brew kettle can a standard electric range hold and effectively heat?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Electric ranges vary considerably, but most can handle a volume of 5-6 gallons...it's more a matter of how LONG it takes to bring it to a boil, not the pot size. A wimpy burner may take well over an hour, a "hot" one will take about a 1/2 hour.Propane cookers are considerably faster than any standard electric range I have seen.
2/24/2005 – Okay, I have to ask, how in the hell do you boil the wort for a 27 gallon Fermenator? Not on the kitchen stove! You might be able to brew like the pro's if you have the equipment but where do you keep the equipment? I imagine this 27 gallon fermenator takes up a great deal of space. In order to keep the fermenator at room temperature that . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Using an outdoor (propane) cooker and a large brewpot, or two. You might be surprised. The 27 gallon Fermenator isn't really that large.
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!
10/16/2004 – Hey, just wondering if you can boil 5 gallons of water on an electric stove or do you recommend the propane stove.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Most electric stoves can do it; it's just a matter of how long you want to wait. Mine takes about 45-60 minutes to bring 5 gallons to a boil. An outdoor propane cooker takes about 15 minutes.
8/10/2004 – How many BTUs would you recommend to efficiently bring a 5 gallon batch to a good roiling boil?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There is always a tradeoff between BTU's and time. We find that for a 5 gallon batch, 20-35K BTU's is about the minimum. The more BTU's the faster the heatup time. 200K BTU's is probably too much.
7/18/2004 – Can The outside cookers be used for other things besides brewing, like cooking turkeys and stuff?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absoutely! We used ours to deep fry a turkey recently. Very good stuff! Many people use them for seafood boils, making soup stock, and generally feeding LOTS of people.
7/17/2004 – What is the best way to heat stuff in the brewpot? Will a regular stove work?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, a regular stovetop burner is usually enough for a small (5 gallon) batch. It may take a while to boil, is all. If you are impatient (or the wife objects to the smell), an outdoor propane cooker is nice, too. For reference, my stove takes about an hour to boil, a propane cooker takes about 15 minutes.
7/18/2003 – Your web-site description doesn't state what type of fuel this burner is set up for. Is it 'Natural Gas' or 'Propane'?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sorry. It should say propane. A common BBQ tank will do just fine.
