Almost 100 batches (and going strong)
From David of Oviedo, Florida on 9/12/2016.
I bought this kettle three years ago and have been very happy with it. Because of lower profile, there is maybe 10% more evaporation than some taller kettles, but that is not a problem and has actually worked to my advantage. I ordered the ball valve . . .
Follow-up to first rave
From Christopher Ott of Vashon, WA, Washington on 5/8/2012.
After making my tenth batch I can't say enough about this kettle. It is sturdy with a heavy lid that seals beautifully. It heats up quickly and there are no scorching problems - I'm using the largest outdoor burner I can find. I had them install the stainless . . .
You gotta get one!
From Christopher Ott of Vashon, Washington on 4/6/2012.
This pot is phenomenal. I can finally make a true 5 gallon batch with a furious rolling boil. Toss in a couple ounces of hops without worrying about boil-over. It makes brewing much easier and less time consuming.
Nice Brew pot at a good deal
From Patrick Karp of Ludington, Michigan on 2/16/2012.
I had the false bottom and bulkhead for the thermometer installed. The pot itself is heavy duty I see many good years of brewing with it. The pot was shipped promptly in a well packed box.
2/14/2013 – Is this a stainless steel pot ( 15 and 25 gal version) ? Is this a clad bottom or all stainless steel?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Both have a tri-clad bottom featuring an aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel. Very tough, very strong and transfers heat well.
2/14/2013 – On the inside of the pot, are there water lines to indicate how many gallons?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, but it would not be hard to stamp or scratch some lines in there.

12/7/2009 – I am brand new to home brewing and need to know exactly what I should buy to get started. I just want to begin to try to make my own beer and then continue to refine it over time. Please let me know exactly what I need to buy to make my first batch!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: What you need are:1) A Homebrew Heaven Equipment Kit (Complete or DeLuxe version, your choice). Both are good, the DeLuxe Kit just contains more "convenience" items.2) An Ingredient Kit of your choice (like Wizard Wheat, Seattle Rain Beer, etc...again your choice). These are available from a drop-down list when you buy the Equipment Kit. . . .
7/23/2008 – I am considering buying one of your kits and am wondering for the brewpot if a electric turkey frier would work or if there is some reason that this wouldn't work. Thanks this site is great.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Can't say about your frier. Haven't seen an ELECTRIC version of one... The propane powered ones might be alright, but they usually sell and aluminum pot with it. Stainless is a better choice.Oooooops...After looking at an electric one online, I would now say to avoid electric turkey fryers. They appear to have the heating element INSIDE . . .
4/1/2008 – I am looking to begin homebrewing and I plan on doing both extract and grain brewing. I would rather not have to invest in some stuff now and then have to "upgrade" later, so my question is what would you recommend as the optimal setup and how much would it cost? For example, should I get a brewpot with a spigot? Thanks! Your site is really . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The question "optimal setup" is a tough one to answer. It can be different for every brewer. Things like desired budget, batch size and desired beer styles make a single answer impossible.Stepping up to all-grain requires some equipment, most likely a larger brewpot. To ME (maybe not to you!), it is easier and more productive to make 10 . . .
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!
10/31/2007 – Finally a site that is easy to use, nice job!I've never brewed in my life. I've wanted to for the last few years, but up until recently, I didn't have the space for a brew kit because I was living in a very small apartment. I've got a large garage now that I'd prefer to brew in that isn't heated and I live in Illinois. I'm looking to . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Thank you, we work hard on our website!That's a lot of questions, but I will try to address them individually. 1) Your garage. For brewing ales, you need to maintain about "room" temperature. For lagers, lower temps are just fine. Lagers take longer, is all. It's a matter of what you like to DRINK more than anything. Often, supplementary . . .
3/30/2007 – i just made my first batch of home brew,and realized i used an aluminum pot to brew it on the stove. is this safe?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Homebrewers have taken sides over this issue for years. We feel that stainless steel is the BEST material, however.Aluminum is light, transfers heat quickly and is inexpensive to buy. Drawbacks to aluminum brewpots are that it will "pit" over time, it doesn't clean as easily, it will dent easier, and even the contention that aluminum contributes . . .
3/8/2007 – Can you do a 10 gal boil in a 12 gal pot? Taking into consideration you would have to use at least 11 gal of wort due to evaparation?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's pretty marginal. It IS possible to add some water DURING the boil to replace that lost to evaporation. Consider too, that you will lose more like 2 gallons to evaporation for a 10 gallon batch. It could probably be done, but...Bigger is better!
2/21/2007 – Is it true that the "harder" the boil with more water, the better results in the beer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Two separate questions, actually. 1) Boiling "harder" probably has no effect. Boiling is boiling, ...temperature-wise.2) More water (a thinner wort) definately DOES make a difference. A thinner, less concentrated wort will cause less carmelization of the malt sugars, and therefor a) make a lighter colored beer b) make a more fermentable . . .
1/27/2007 – My next goal in brewing is to go to a full 5 gallon boil. My kitchen stove is halogen so I just don't think I can do it without an outdoor burner. I was hoping you could give me a recommendation. I am looking for something with fine jets as I heard this is much better to prevent scorching or else is gas efficient. Also I heard the pot . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You CAN'T find a better burner than this one. Gets very hot, yet has many fine jets to disperse the heat evenly:All the pots we sell are quality grade pots. Just pick a size that works for you. If you are considering all-grain brewing in the future, a large pot is a MUST. Here is a linkg to that category:
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
10/19/2006 – I currently brew using extract but want to go to all grain brewing. Could you recommend the proper size brewpot and burner assembly required to make up to 7 gallons. I have a 3, 5, and 7 gal carboy.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Like so many things, there is no single right answer. Higher gravity beers, like bocks and porters etc require more grain, and therefor more volume in the mash kettle. American style beers require less volumn. How carefully you control the all-grain mashing process also dictates how much grain is required. Given the above, I would . . .
9/28/2006 – Exactly how big a pot do you need to do an all grain 10 gallon batch? Will a 12 gallon pot work?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: For lighter beers, yes, that would probably be ok. For heavier beers, like bocks, porters etc that require a lot of grain, a 15 gallon pot would be a much better choice.
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!
