3/15/2015 – What about the trub?I use DME and have been pleased enough with the results. Looking at this kettle and where the siphon valve is I can't help but wonder if the trub won't get sucked up first and/or clog the valve? I have seen false bottoms out there but they seem more for all grain - am I right in assuming that the trub is too fine . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We haven't found trub to cause any clogging with this setup. I suppose it's possible, but unlikely.If it does become a problem, you could easily attach a Kettle Screen (see link).
9/27/2014 – I'm currently doing 5 gal extract brewing but expect to advance to all grain and doing 10 gal. batches. What size brew pot do you recommend for 10 gal? Would a 20 gal be too large and could I brew 5 gal batches in the 20 gal pot in the meantime?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Hi MelFor doing 10 gallon all-grain brews, I like the 15 gallon pot size. This will handle most any recipe unless you are doing VERY heavy beers like barleywines, heavy bocks and similar.Doing a 5 gallon batch in a 20 gallon pot is certainly possible, but a little "awkward" in some respect. For instance, your spigot may only reach . . .
4/28/2013 – Were's the Boilermaker brew kettle manufactured?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here in the U.S. (Indiana)
4/8/2012 – I'm just getting started with home brewing. Friends are all telling me to go with a larger brew pot. I've decided to go with a 10 gallon stainless. Assuming price is no object can you recommend a set up (spigot, thermometer etc.) that will allow me to expand as I gain experience?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's confusing, isn't it? I'll try to help with that.A 10 gallon pot is NICE to have indeed. It works well for a 5-7 gallon batch of EXTRACT beer. Nice indeed. If cost was no object (it always is at my house), I would go with the Blichmann 10 gallon pot. It comes with all the bells and whistles you mentioned.If however, you ever want . . .
3/22/2011 – How tall is a 10 gallon Boilermaker Brewing Pot? My range hood is 26" above my stove and I want to make sure it fits.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No problem. The 10 gallon Boilermaker fits inside of a 17X17X19" high box.
5/17/2010 – what is your phone number?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can be reached at (425) 355-8865Our toll free order number is (800) 850-2739
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. . . .
8/24/2009 – I bought the 55 gallon Boilermaker from you folks. What burner do you recommend? Something that would handle the weight of a 40 gallon batch. I am thinking 320 lbs. Can you help me?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would go with the Bayou Banjo High Pressure Classic Cooker. It will support a weight of up to 40.5 gallons
3/24/2009 – I'm planning on switching to 10 gal batches soon and would like to upgrade to a 15 gal stainless steel mash tun. Are there any obvious advantages to the Blichmann Boilermaker 15 gal pot over your 15 gal pot with equivalent accessories (weldless fittings, thermometer, ball valve, false bottom, sight gauge)? For example, do you think one would . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Good question.After pricing it out, I find that the Blichmann Boilermaker runs about $80 more than the similarly equipped 15 Gallon model. BUT:Boilermaker pot is truly a classy brewpot. The "button" type false bottom may be more rugged. With this pot you also get a variable angled thermometer (instead of straight), a heat shield . . .
11/2/2008 – I am very interested in the boilermaker pots. Can you tell me if the couplers for the ballvalve, brewmometer and sight glass are welded in or compression fitted through the pots. I am trying to determine overall life span of parts or if there are gaskets and such that can ultimately wear out due to heat expansion and need replacement.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: All are compression fittings (not welded). Have never heard of one failing, actually, but Blichmann Engineering is great to work with. I am certain that replacement seals are available.
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 . . .
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:
12/2/2006 – I love your website, i just read all the FAQ's and some of it was quite informative.A buddy and I have been brewing some good beer now for 2 years and are ready to increase our production. We plan to purchase your 27 gallon fermenter maybe 2 of em. I'd really like to find a 30 gallon pot. any suggestions?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We now offer 25 gallon brewpots as well as the Blichmann line of pots up to 55 gallons. See links 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?
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 10am-6:30pm Monday-Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturdaysand 10am-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 . . .
12/22/2005 – I am making 5 gallon batches of brew from kits right now, and expect to move up to whole grain eventually. I was planning to get a brew pot with the spigot & thermometer fitting installed, but I'm not sure the 6 gallon pot is big enough - what happened to the 7.5 gallon pot?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I agree. A larger pot would be better for all-grain brewing.The 7.5 gallon pot is unavailable, but we now have an 8 gallon pot that works well for 5 gallon all-grain brewing.Many brewers find that as long as they are "stepping up", it makes sense to start making 10 gallon batches. Since you will be spending twice as much time MAKING . . .
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!
