4/19/2008 – I am looking for a good book to help answer some of the questions I have related to getting into all grain brewing. I have not yet acquired any equipment and was hoping I would find a book that would guide me into getting the "best" equipment necessary. There are a few titles I found on Chapters and Amazon, but wanted to check with you guys . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We like "How to Brew" by Palmer, or The New Complete Joy of Homebrewing" by Papazian
2/1/2008 – What would be the best all around book to by for brewing beer and whiskey and others. And thanks for answering all of my other questions. Have a nice day.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There a lots of good books on brewing, but I am not aware of ONE that covers beer brewing, distilling (whiskey and other spirits), and all the other possibilities, like wine making. There are specialized books for each, however.For brewing beer, we like The Complete Joy of Homebrewing. It's a classic, with lots of good information including . . .
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?

8/2/2006 – All of the recipies in this book call for concentrated boils. In opposition to my local brew shop,I like the full boil.Can I follow these recipes and just add more water or is there something I should do to compensate?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I do too (like full boils). You make better beer that way. Lots of OLD recipes call for concentrated boils because they just didn't know any better.Yes, for the most part, you can just add more water. You may reduce the hops just slightly to compensate. You get better hop utilization with a full boil. Another good reason to do it.
2/2/2006 – Is there any book recommended for intermediate extract brewers who want to switch to all-grain brewing? I am having difficulties finding any resources and my local brewshop recently closed.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would say this one (Complete Joy) is very good, also "How to Brew" by J. Palmer. Here is a link to "How to Brew"
12/4/2005 – please tell me what i need from step 1 to last step in making beer
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Many books have been written on this subject. I can't possibly give you a complete answer here. We recommend:The New Complete Joy of HomebrewingHow to Brewand if you want a good introductory video, here is ours:Getting Started Home Brewing
10/17/2005 – Im 16 and have been interested in brewing for some time. I think hard cider might be the best to start out. I've talked to my parents about whether this would be ok not, knowing how it would be taken. I explained that if i wanted beer or straight up alcohol i could simply find somone to buy it for me. After some discussion I was basicly told . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not sure if I can speak for the entire "brewing community", but I will give my 2 cents worth (as they used to say). It is my (personal) opinion that Americans treat alcohol (and some other things) irrationally. We feel we have to protect kids from it at all costs. Kids get the idea that this exotic, dangerous thing must be tried and abused. . . .
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!
8/6/2004 – Let's assume I need the "Beermaking for Idiots" book that will fill me on the tools, the stuff and the fluff needed to make really good home brew. Also assume I have never done this before and have a wife who does not want me to blow anything up. What book do you recommend?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's an easy one...We would recommend the New Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Papazian. We include it in each of our equipment kits, but it can be purchased separately.Another new one that is very good is "How to Brew" by Palmer.
6/21/2004 – according to the new complete joy of homebrewing you dont need to boil 6 gallons of wort, instead he suggests boiling 1 or 2 gallons and adding water after the wort is in the primary fermenter, what are your thoughts on this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's one man's opinion, and I'll bet if you asked Charlie today, he would recommend a full boil. The book was good in it's time (and still is in many ways), but I beg to differ.Using a small brewpot (or less than a full volume boil) causes a "concentrated boil", if you will. This concentrated, sugary mixture will easily carmelize with . . .
4/16/2004 – Does this book go into any of the growing of the different plants used in brewing?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, it doesn't. The book you want is called "The Homebrewer's Garden". Here is a link to that book:
2/22/2004 – How many pages and recipes are in this book?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 399 pages total, with 80 recipes.
1/27/2004 – I was getting ready to start all grain brewing. I am not sure the exact procedure to follow or all the equipment that I will need to buy. Is there any way you could point me in the right direction?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: First, when getting into all grain brewing there are as many was of doing it as there are brewers. Everybody does it little differently.I would have you read the section in "The New Complete Joy of Homebrewing". After reading that go to page 296 (I think)and they give a break down of what measure you use to get started.Second, What's . . .
