6/9/2012 – When I buy this specific kit (Cooper's Unhopped Wheat Malt 3.3 Lb.) What else do I need to purchase (specifically) to make it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: As far as ingredients, you'll need some additional fermentables, like dry wheat malt extract OR corn sugar, hops, and priming sugar and water. See links below.You didn't say whether/not you already have the equipment for making beer. If so, that's it.If you don't have the equipment, then an Equipment Kit is a great way to go. Additionally . . .

4/28/2010 – I would like to make a sparkling mead using your kit. If I were to treat it as I do beer, I would wait til the end of fermentation, add priming sugar, then bottle. Do you agree? Would adding additonal honey for carbonation work, and if so, how much? Then, as far as the bottling, which bottles/cork/cap combination would be best? thanks. . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I agree, more or less...This can be done, but DON'T add the stabilizer at the end (it comes with the kit) or it won't carbonate. Also, don't expect a sweet mead, because all of the honey (sugar) will have been fermented out. You can get a sweet sparkling mead if you keg it, but that is different than your bottling question.For a carbonated . . .
7/16/2009 – I prefer to bottle condition my beer and perform the second stage of fermentation in the bottle. How much corn sugar should I add to each 12 oz bottle for this Malt?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Let's get our terminology straight first. A secondary fermentation is done prior to bottling. It is a clarifying step whereby you siphon from one vessel to another, and more of the sediment "falls out". After THAT, bottling or kegging takes place. Bottle conditioning (carbonation) occurs after the beer is clarified and you add additional . . .
10/3/2008 – Is using the Coopers cardonation drops for the priming OK?, or should I use the priming sugar?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We're not big fans of those drops. You should be priming the entire batch, not individual bottles. You can be more consistant that way and adjust the carbonation levels to your liking. No added stuff, either...
8/27/2008 – How much priming sugar comes with the kits? 2lbs? I have a bunch of packets sitting around from your kits and want to use it for other things but I don't have a accurate scale. P.S. I love your West Coast Blonde kit and plan to order more very soon.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The priming sugar packets contain just a little over 5 oz each (about 1/3 pound). By volume, it is about 7/8 of a cup.We like a nice Blonde too!
7/14/2008 – can i use dme to prime my beer? if so what would you suggest dme or dextrose?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, absolutely. DME makes for a nice creamy head, and is especially good with stouts. Use about 1.25 to 1.5 cups per five gallon batch.
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?

10/22/2006 – aside from the 2 lbs of sugar, should i get a little extra for priming?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, I would. Maybe get a 3 lb bag for both purposes.OR get two pounds, and have us send you a pre-measured priming sugar for 5 gallons. See links below.
2/2/2005 – I don't mean to beat a dead horse. But, as a new homebrewer is priming sugar the best way to carbonate?Will you have trouble transporting your homebrew in bottles because the sediment will get stirred up? Or is the yeast generally sticky enough to stay put as long as you are not driving like Mario Andrettti?I want to homebrew and . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I think you will find the yeast layer to be very, very thin and well adhering to the bottom of the bottle. Sure, you CAN shake it up, but normal handling isn't a problem. Is priming sugar the best way to carbonate?...well that depends. Force carbonating (using CO2) in a keg is hard to beat. It leaves NO sediment and it carbonates overnight. . . .
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!
10/1/2004 – i will be bottling my first batch of beer. i read alot about using corn sugar for priming but my brewing instructions say to use table sugar and not to use corn sugar. what will be the difference and which should i use so i dont mess this up?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I don't know what instructions you are using, but it is bad advice. Table sugar adds a "cider-like" taste, and produces larger, unnatural bubbles in the beer. I would ignore the instructions and use corn sugar for priming. Use about 3/4 to 1 cup per 5 gallons.
7/2/2004 – Is it better to prime your beer bottle's individually or is it just as well to prime the batch?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I believe it is much better to prime the entire batch. Priming each bottle individually is not very consistant.
9/26/2003 – Do you use the same amount of DME as you would corn sugar? Does the substitution of DME for priming change the finished charactistics of the beer in any way?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No. For priming your beer, you should use either 1.25 cups dry malt extract or 3/4 cup of corn sugar. The carbonation from dry malt extract appears to have a smaller bubble size, and produce a "creamier" head that will corn sugar. Using dry malt also will take a little longer for your beer to develop full carbonation.
9/26/2003 – Some homebrews I have tasted seem to have "larger" CO2 bubbles than bottled beers. Is this the result of using priming sugars? Is there any type of priming sugar or technique that will minimize the size of the bubbles?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Some sugars are known to produce larger bubbles, especially table sugar. Corn sugar works nicely, but using dry malt extract seems to produce the smallest bubbles in bottle-conditioned beer.Another way is to force carbonate your beer in a keg, using a kegging system.
