5/26/2015 – Is your bulk LME hopped or un-hopped? Do you offer hopped LME in bulk?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The bulk LME is unhopped. Hopped LME is only offered in cans.
6/3/2012 – Is your rice extract certified gluten free for making gluten free beer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is known to be gluten free, but there is no written "certification" available. Another product you may be interested in is our Sorghum Syrup. It is often used to make gluten free beer. Again, no written certification is available, but it is well known to be gluten free.Gluton free beer recipes are now widely available on the internet. . . .
6/21/2011 – I have a friend that is looking for a few good gluten free beers to satisfy her gluten free issues. Any recipes or especially kits you could recommend? also for what its worth, I just heard that Washington State University just introduced a gluten free wheat berry they invented that you might look into if you have not already done so.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We do offer the Breiss sorghum syrup for use in making gluton free beer. Here is a link to a recipe or two:http://store.homebrewheaven.com/articles/Gluton_Free.htm
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
10/18/2009 – Since the canned Coopers extracts are used to produce +/- 5 gallons of brew, along with 2 lbs of corn sugar as an adjunct, can I use 1/2 the can of Coopers and 1 pound of corn sugar to brew 2.5 gallons? I'd like to experiment with flavors and don't want to commit to 2 cases of a beer I may not be happy with...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, this can be done but I would seal up the remaining extract well, and refrigerate it also.Besides, 2 cases of beer isn't a huge committment...that's just a nice afternoon!
7/23/2009 – I am trying to make gluten free beer for my wife who has celiac disease. Is rice solids gluten free?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We don't sell rice solids, only rice extract, and they are different things entirely. Rice extract is sweet, like a sugar. As far as I know it is gluton free, but some barley may have been used in the processing of the extract.We now offer sorghum syrup which has become popular for those who cannot tolerate gluton.Here is a link to . . .
6/7/2009 – New to this... What's the difference between using the dry malt extract (much cheaper) or the liquid malt extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They are fundamentally the same products, it's just that the malt extract syrup has about 20% water content, and the dry malt extract is well...dry. It is used in different proportions as well. If a recipe calls for 7 lbs of malt extract syrup, you can substitute about 5 lbs of dry malt extract to make the same beer.
3/19/2009 – In your opinion which is better LME or DME? I've done a few of your kits (they're great!) now I want to try a recipe beer from scratch...
Response From Homebrew Heaven: LME (liquid malt extract syrup) and DME (dry malt extract powder) are exactly the same (in terms of quality), in my opinion. The only real difference is that LME contains about 20% water. Any recipe can be "adjusted" accordingly to obtain the same starting gravity.LME can also discolor somewhat with prolonged storage. DME does not. . . .
10/17/2008 – Some recipes call for malt syrup, some for dry extract. If a recipe calls for 7 lbs of malt syrup but I have dry extract I want to use how much should I use? What is the conversion factor?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I this case, you would use about 5.5 lbs of dry malt extract. Use about 20% less dry malt extract compared to malt syrup.
5/22/2008 – I have in the past brewed my own beer but now I am having trouble. I can not find the hopped malt I used to use. Coopers or Muntons. And so many yeast brands. Help a old retired man. Thank you.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I know how it is to be old! Yes, there are many more varieties of EVERYTHING now. You should be able to click on this link, and it will take you to both Cooper's and Munton's Malt Extract Kits. Another coupleof links are below leading you to the familiar yeasts.As for yeast, many of these "kits" come with the yeast. Check the descriptions. . . .
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.

1/28/2007 – I bought 2- 3.75lb. cans Coopers Draught Ale. I want to brew a 5 gallon batch. Am I correct that I will use 1 full can of the malt extract and 2 lbs. more out of the 2nd can? Would that be about right or should I use 2 lbs. of corn sugar instead? Which is better?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not usually. You see the Cooper's "kits", like this one, are hopped malt extracts. If you add more from the 2nd can, you are also adding more hops. Most people (and this is how the recipe reads) add 2 lbs to 2.5 lbs of corn sugar to one can of extract. As far as the BEST way to do it (in my not so humble opinion), is to use dry malt . . .
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
9/26/2006 – Maybe you won't want to answer my question because I am making yogurt instead of beer! I have a recipe that calls for liquid malt extract. Do you know if someone with celiac disease can eat barley malt extract?I tried to order dry rice malt extract and the system denied me access because I am located in Botswana, Africa. My mailing . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Barley malt extract does contain gluton, but not as much as wheat. We do have dry rice malt extract, and we are happy to send it to Virginia. You will need to call us to place the order. We do have a minimum order of $15 as well. Call 1-425-355-8865.Also, there is another option: Many homebrewers are now making gluton free beer, using . . .
4/10/2006 – I have a wheat/gluten alergy (Celiac Disease). i would like to use just rice-malt to brew some beer. any advice (recipes)? is the rice-malt gluten free?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We are certainly not MD's or celiac experts, but it is our understanding that you should limit your intake of wheat, rye, barley, oats, or their counterparts. Wheat is high in gluton, and barley is not as high as wheat. Most beers contain primarily barley, altho wheat is found it weizen-type beers, and other grains, such as rice is found in . . .
2/5/2006 – In what form does the extract come in? Bags? Bottles? If I order 10 pounds, can I only use half and keep the rest conveniently? How long will it stay good for?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Normally, in plastic tubs with a screw-off lid. Yes, it can be stored, but we recommend refrigeration if you do.The exception is if you order more, like 60 lbs. That we would send in a 5 gallon plastic bucket with a pry-off lid.
7/25/2005 – Can you please confirm that the ingredients in most Malts are wheat and barley (60/40). I have an intolerance to wheat gluten - Many things are flavored with malt - are malts by definition made from wheat or are there alternatives?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not so. Only the wheat malt extract has wheat in it (typically 60% wheat and 40% barley). That extract is used for making wheat beers.Our bulk malt extract, as well as many canned malt extracts are 100% barley malt extract, and do not contain wheat at all.We're certainly not doctors or chemists here, but it is my understanding that . . .
4/9/2005 – Do you sell Dark Malt extract? I didn't see it on your website.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes; we sell it in bulk form as well as in cans. Here is a link to the bulk malt extract.The various brands of canned dark malt extracts are in the Malt Extracts (canned) category.
3/31/2005 – Can I use half a can (2.5 gallons) and save the other half for later, or will this malt spoil if not used after opening.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It will last for some time, IF you seal it up well, and refrigerate it.
2/25/2005 – I've been brewing beer for a year or two and have the basics down (but not much beyond that). A friend was recently diagnosed as Celiac's disease which means she can't have any gluten or gluten byproducts. I was thinking about trying to make her some gluten free beer but the malt situation seems quite challenging. One recommendation I've . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We're certainly not experts in Celiac disease, sorry. It is my understanding, however that gluten is primarily found in wheat. While barley malt may have some, I've been told it is lower than wheat, at least.To me, mead is a much different drink than beer. I like both, but don't see much similarity. I have had meads with hops, and didn't . . .
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!
11/6/2004 – I cannot find malt, liquid, powder, (organic) or whatever making for making my homemade bagels,,,do you have it???
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Probably the most convenient form for you is dry malt extract. We have it. We also have liquid malt extract.links provided
3/13/2004 – Will one of these can kits work to make a three gal. batch with out adding more extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. You might find it a bit "hoppy", because the hops are formulated for a 5 gallon batch. Many people like it that way, however.
2/2/2004 – How much beer will this can (and the others) typically yield?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They typically make 5 U.S. gallons, which is equivalent to about fifty two 12 oz. beers. Usually, you must add some additional corn sugar, or malt extract, per the recipe.
12/7/2003 – how many gallons do these cans make?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Most are intended to make 5 gallons, when you use one can and about 2 lbs of either dry malt extract or corn sugar. When doing this, you should use a hopped malt extract.
11/18/2003 – How much will cost to buy by internet 60 pounds of your malt extract Bulk amber malt including transportation to St. paul, Minnesota?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Actually, for any item, you can just add it to your online shopping cart, and then click on "Determine shipping and sales tax". Your actual cost will appear.
10/18/2003 – I have never done this before but would like to buy this product what type of container would I need to make this beer & are there instructions included with this product? or would I need more iteams to make this beer.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You will need a brewing equipment kit to ferment and bottle the beer. You can find them on our website or from the link below
7/4/2003 – How much dme does it take to equal 1 lb. of bulk liquid extract?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: DME is about 20% more concentrated (by weight) than liquid malt extract. So:0.8 lb DME = 1 lb LME or,1 lb DME = 1.2 LME
