10/1/2009 – I'm want to brew a Cooper's or Muntons hopped can beer kit with two pounds of DME. should I boil these for a short period of time before adding to primary fermenter?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Altho these are billed as "no-boil kits" we believe that a short (15 minute or so) boil will improve your beer. We like to add a little crystal malt to the water while it is coming up to a boil as well, removing it before the boil. A small amount of hops just before removing from the heat is also good. These two additions will add real . . .
9/24/2009 – I have some leaf hops left over from a previous recipe. I kept it in the package, sealed it in a ziploc bag, and have kept it refrigerated. How long is it generally good for once the vacuum sealed pack has been opened?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Kept away from oxygen (air) and frozen, they should keep their aromatic properties for at least 6 months. Colder is better, of course.
1/3/2009 – what should be a good finishing hop for this? should i add one to this as it already comes hopped?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The term "finishing hop" refers to a hop that is added late in the boil, primarily for aroma and/or flavoring, not bitterness. This extract is a hopped extract, but that is for bitterness. This extract (like any of the canned extracts) will benefit from a late addition of hops (perhaps 1/2 oz) just before the end of the boil. Maybe a minute . . .
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?

2/23/2007 – If a recipe calls for santiam pellets what will work as a substitute. Where are these from? Will you get these in?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sanitam is a variety that comes from the Tettnanger and Hallertauer "family". Either one would be a good substitute. They are a hybrid that comes from Yakima. We may get some in the future.
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?

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 . . .
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!
1/28/2005 – I've been brewing most of my brews with hop pellets, but i'm starting to get discouraged by the amount of residue. When i try to filter it out, it clogs up right away (and a fair amount still seems to get through). Can this bag contain the pellets (i kinda doubt it) or is there something else i can use? or should i just make the move to . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, the muslin bag will not contain pellet hops residue. Filtering isn't really effective, as you have found out.The idea with pellet hops is to allow the residue to settle in the primary fermenter, and then rack (siphon) away the good stuff (clear beer). After transferring to a glass carboy, you shouldn't have much (any) in your final . . .
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 . . .
6/15/2003 – Do you have any vacuumed packed leaf hops (air tight)?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes! All of our leaf hops are vacuum packed to ensure freshness.
