WOW! Amazingly Fresh & Hoppy!
From Anonymous of Mukilteo, Washington on 5/26/2016.
This is truly unique, I don't know of anything else that could do this. It makes it so fresh & so hoppy- I'm amazed! Now I'm spoiled, it's so good, I'm going to always want it in my beer!

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.
11/18/2008 – I was researching mead and i stopped by a local meadery and he said for a five gallon batch that primary would probably take between 2-4 months and the entire process will take a year. is this true? Does leaving sit too long in primary damage it? Thank you i love the QnA pages
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Making mead takes patience, clearly, but putting a time on it like your local fellow is just not possible. How long will it take? It depends on the fermentation temperature, the amount and quality of the nutrients added to mixture, the amount and quality of the honey itself, the type and quantity of yeast, and probably 100 other factors. . . .
8/1/2008 – HI, I would like to try to make mead. Do I need to buy a "Beer Kit" and do you sell instructions for this? I have only made whiskey with a still. Beer and mead making is COMPLETELY NEW. Please help with some info and tell what I need to buy. Thank You,,,Paul
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A great way to get started in making mead is with these two products:Nectar of the Gods Mead Kithttp://store.homebrewheaven.com/Product550This is the ingredients, instructions etc to make a nice traditional mead. For the equipment, we recommend our 5 Gallon Complete Wine Making Kit. It has all the hardware...fermenter, test equipment . . .
5/2/2008 – I've brewed four of your beer kits with great success, thank you. I live in New York City, and with summer approaching I’m sure the temperatures will be well above 75. Is there a something, perhaps wine, that will ferment properly at higher temperatures? I’m predicting between 80 and 85 degrees. I’ve heard Mead might, but the one Mead . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes! Red wines and meads, especially, are fermented warm. Cabernets, Merlots, Pinot Noirs etc etc work out nicely. Meads too!Don't let the fact that your first (and only?) taste of mead was too sweet for your tastes. Mead can be made dry as well. With our Nectar of the Gods Mead Kit you actually sweeten to taste (if you like) AFTER fermentation. . . .
4/29/2008 – We tried this mead kit and loved it. Now we want to try a cyser. A lot of what I have been reading says to rack/bottle once it clears up. Do you have any guidelines for how long meads/cysers should ferment? Thanks for the help.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: In short, no.Here is the thing...MANY MANY MANY factors play into how long a fermentation will take. Here are just a few:Sugar (honey) concentrationStrain of yeast usedFermentation temperatureNutrient level presentType(s) of nutrientsTemperature variations during fermentationAmount of yeast usedMineral content of water . . .
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?

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 . . .
10/11/2004 – I've made a pyment (mead with fruit) using homegrown grapes. The grape concentrate was added to the honey-water mixture towards the end just long enough to pasturize. Mead nutrient was also added at that time. Once the mixture was forced cool (75-80 degrees F), the Wyeast Sweet Mead Yeast Package was added. It had been swelling for about . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Mead is nothing like beer, it is often SLOW SLOW SLOW to ferment. It sounds like it is working, just slowly. Get used to it. It may continue like this for months. Repitching won't help, but more nutrients may.
3/17/2004 – what is mead???
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A drink made from fermented honey. Yum! It has a long, interesting history.
3/10/2004 – What is the difference between a dry mead yeast and a sweet mead yeast?? Also if you make mead with a basic wine yeast will it turn out ok?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Both mead yeasts are actually liquid cultures. The dry mead yeast finishes out with a less residual sugar, so it is less sweet than the sweet mead yeast.Yes, many fine meads are made with wine yeasts. The true mead yeasts, however, seem to accentuate the honey flavor more than the wine yeasts do.
2/16/2004 – It has been about 4 days since I mixed the ingrediants and put the mead into my primary fermentor and I have not seen any evidence of fermentation. It is rather cold where I live (50-60 degrees) and the mead is in my shed. Will this ruin the mead or just take a really long time to ferment before I can transfer it to the carboy?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There is no harm to the mead, but yes, it will take a very long time to ferment. Mead likes it warmer than that. We have a supplemental brew heat pad that would work nicely for applications like this. Link is below
2/4/2004 – About how long will I have to wait before I can drink my mead?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Mead is one of those drinks that just gets better with age. Figure 6-8 weeks to ferment it. After that, we recommend at least 3 months aging...BUT if you can stand to wait a year it is much better. Try putting a few bottles aside from each batch so that you always have some well aged mead on hand!
12/28/2003 – Hi, I recently received a "Nectar of the Gods" kit. I'm planning to make the mead in the next day or two. In going over the kit components I noticed that there are two packets of dry yeast (both the same). Do I use both packets even though the label says one packet is sufficient for 5 gallons?Thanks for your assistance!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, go ahead and use both packets. Mead is slow to ferment, and this extra addtion helps somewhat.
10/24/2003 – I just like to say that I enjoy making your mead kits. I have made "gallons" of it and it never last long. My friends drool over it. The best thing that I found out is to disolve the honey in all the water or juice before I put it my fermenter.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Thanks for the kind words about our kit. We like it too!
10/21/2003 – I have recently started my first batch of mead using the Wyeast Sweet Mead Yeast. After combining the Honey,water and mead blend and allowing the mixture to cool to 75 degrees I pitched the yeast. Unfortunately there seems to be little or no sign of fermentation after 7 days. Is the reaction less obvious than when brewing beer or is my fermentation . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Mead is known to ferment very very slowly, and especially so when using the liquid yeasts. The fermentation is nothing like beer at all. It may be fermenting, but if it's in a bucket, it may be giving off CO2 at about the same rate that the bucket leaks. Hard to say.The mead blend actually contains a little bit of Epsom salts, but there . . .
10/18/2003 – If I wanted to make a cyser, and used your Nectar of the gods mead making kit, how much Apple Fruit Wine Base would I need? If I don't need the full 9.5 lbs., could I divide it between batches?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would use about half of it. You could use the whole can, but you can expect your cyser to be very strong, and sweet if you do. If you divide the fruit base, be sure to seal up and refrigerate the unused portion.
10/16/2003 – What equipment do i need besides the mead kit to make mead?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If you want to make a traditional (still, non-carbonated) mead, we recommend the Wine Making Equipment Kit. If you are looking to make a carbonated mead, the Complete Equipment (Beer) Brewing Kit is a better choice.
8/5/2003 – I'm attempting my first batch of mead (or anything for that matter), and am having a great time, but have a few questions. When I'm ready to bottle my mead, is it better to cork it into wine bottles or can I cap it into 12oz. bottles? In either case, how much head space should I leave in the bottle? Do I need to do anything else before or . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Glad to hear you're having fun with it. So do we!A traditional mead (like our Nectar Kit) is treated like a wine...corked into wine bottles. You CAN however put it into beer bottles if you like, however. If you are making a sparkling (carbonated) mead, I would definately use strong beer bottles and caps. For corks, leave about 2"-2.5" headspace . . .
6/30/2003 – I am a novice home brewer and recently purchased a Mead Kit. I followed the directions and everything looks to be ok. Within 8 hours, I could hear the CO coming out. My only question is: Right now, all the honey has settled tot he bottom. Is this correct or is there something I chould be doing to get it off the bottom?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: This is correct. Don't worry, the yeast will "seek out" the honey and go to work on it. It takes some time, is all.
6/25/2003 – I am a novice when it comes to wine making. I am about to get started however, and need some advice before placing my order.I plan to make "Mead" for my first batch. Other than Item "H24" in your catalog, do I need to order the Mead Blend or Mead Yeast, and if so, which yeast. I will also be ordering complete kit. I believe the mead . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would probably go with the 5 gallon wine equipment kit and when you want to make the 6 gallon wine kits, get a 6 gallon carboy at that time.The H24 Mead kit has everything you need (including the mead blend) to make it.Sometime it can take a few months, especially in cooler weather, for the mead to ferment out. So when your mead is in . . .
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.
6/11/2003 – Since I've had a few successful batches of wine made (my friends think so) I was wanting to know does this kit come complete or is there any other additional equipment or ingredients I need to purchase for this..Thank you
Response From Homebrew Heaven: This kit provides all the ingredients, as well as instructions, for making a great mead. It does NOT contain any equipment, or bottles. If you have been making wine, you probably have the necessary equipment.
