1/16/2010 – Hi there just wondering, what's the best hops for british ale?I was thinking about Willamette Hop Pellets - 2 Oz, but im not sure, pls help?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, that is a classic ale hop. Kent goldings and fuggles are also classic british ale hops. If it were me, I would go with the Kent Goldings.

7/17/2006 – I just ordered the Shamrock Stout. I'm limited where I live to beer supplies and am wondering are bottle caps included?Also, is there a way of tweaking the recipe to more of a Russian Imperial?Add more brown sugar for extra 'buzz' and that's it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry, bottle caps are not included with the Shamrock Stout. Just the ingredients. Many people keg their beer, and have no need for bottle caps.For an imperial stout, I would add about 1 lb. of additional dry malt extract, and perhaps another 1/2 ounce of hops as well. If you like it kind of "creamy" you can add about 1/2 lb of oatmeal to your specialty grains.
6/4/2005 – How long can hop pellets last unrefrigerated?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Properly sealed away from air, they will still be ok after about 6 months, but they will lose some of their aromatic qualities. The bitterness will still be there.
4/12/2005 – I'm fairly new to beer making, so.....Is it common at all to NOT use hops?What do hops do?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, hops are used in almost ALL beers. Hops provide bitterness that offsets the sweetness of the malt. Hops also are an active antibacterial agent, and help with long term storage of the beer.
4/7/2005 – Can you be more specific in your hop varieties? E.g., are your Hallertauer a Hersbrucker or a Mittelfrüh? Same for your Goldings?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They all came to us from the Yakima, Washington area. Some refer to the Goldings as "Yakima Goldings", or "American Goldings" but they were originally from East Kent, in England.Same thing with the Hallertauer variety. They were originally from the traditional German Hallertauer region, and are neither Hersbrucker or Mittelfruh. They are just referred to as "American Hallertauer".
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!
1/13/2005 – Are hops(as far as boiling,aroma,flavor,etc) placed under one of these categories based on when they are thrown into the brew, or is there a big difference between the hops themselves?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Both, really.Hops added at the beginning of the boil add bitterness. Hops added toward the end of the boil add flavor, and hops added at the very end add aroma.Some hop varieties are considered boiling (bittering) hops, like Galena and Columbus because that is how they are typically used AND they have high alpha acid rating that also contribute to bitterness. Other hops, like Saaz and Hallertauer have superior flavor and aroma and for that reason are used at the end of the boil. These are typically low alpha varieties of hops.There is NOTHING, however prohibiting you from using a (traditional) bittering hop for aroma, or an aromatic hop for bittering. Some very interesting beers are created in that way. That is one of the (fun) variables that home brewers use to create their own unique brews!
