Product Details

Our Deluxe kit uses a pair of Big Mouth Bubbler® plastic fermentors as vessels in a two-stage fermentation process. The additional equipment and extra steps taken with the Deluxe Starter Kit reward the brewer with clearer, clean-tasting beer as well as the ability to brew a wider range of styles as your confidence grows and sudsy repertoire expands!

Designed with a game-changing wide mouth that you can easily fit your arm through, the Big Mouth Bubbler® Plastic Fermentor saves time and effort on cleaning, so you can brew your next batch sooner without so much as blinking an eye at a dirty fermentor. Graduation marks ensure you’ll brew your first kit and every kit after that with the accurate volumes to ensure a perfect batch every time, and the punted bottom makes transferring wort easier for a crystal-clear finished brew.

The included single-port lid features a standard port size to accommodate all the tools in the starter kit for ultimate ease of measuring and monitoring the progress of each batch. The modular lid design of the Big Mouth Bubbler® Plastic Fermentor is easy to clean and easy to upgrade to a dual-port lid once you want to start experimenting more. Dry-hopping is a breeze once you begin to explore more advanced brews such as IPAs. The optional Dual Port Lid allows for the use of a temperature controller probe such as the ThermoStar Dual-Mode Digital Temperature Controller with optional 12" stainless probe ;ensuring precise and repeatable fermentation temperatures!

The Big Mouth Bubbler® design has a smaller footprint than standard fermentors to take up less space while you test your hand at homebrewing beer.



HERE’S THE FUN PART! Every starter kit comes complete with your choice of recipe kits. Just pick one of the three classic Northern Brewer recipes below and you’ll have all the ingredients you need to take your new gear out for a test drive.

Caribou Slobber Brown Ale Like your brews tall, dark and drinkable? Then try Caribou Slobber Brown Ale. Perfect for fans of sub- stantial craft beer, this ale is full-bodied and smooth, deliciously dark without a hint of bitterness. Guaranteed to become your new favorite session beer.

Irish Red Ale If you’re looking for a perfectly-balanced, crowdpleasing pint, you can’t go wrong with our Irish Red Ale. There’s a reason this kit is our best-seller. Actually, three reasons: great, medium-bodied taste, rich coppery color and enticingly low aging requirements.

Chinook IPA This American IPA recipe kit has a relatively modest gravity and an immodest hop character derived entirely from a single hop variety: Chinook.

Required but not included: a 4 to 5 gallon kettle and roughly 50 empty 12oz beer bottles that accept pry-off caps. See our Raise Your Game Fresh Start Upgrade Kit.

Note: Testing the specific gravity of your batch with a hydrometer is the best way to keep tabs on fermentation, and for us to help troubleshoot by phone or email. We highly recommend adding our Mad Brewer Upgrade Kit or Brewery Essentials Gravity Testing Kit.

Great Easy Homebrewing Kit
I recently decided to take up a new hobby and there is none better then brewing good quality homemade beer. I have my first batch in secondary right now and I just brewed a second batch that is fermenting in primary. It is very easy and fun to do. I have not bottled yet and I am sure that it will be time consuming but I do place to upgrade once I get the hang of things to a keg system so carbonating will be a breeze. Northern Brewer Company is extremely helpful when it comes to a timely response for help with their product. I had multiple questions while making my first batch to make sure I am doing it correctly so I do not waste 5 gallons of beer. They provided detailed help and support and overall there is no other rating for this product and this company other than 5 stars. I have 2 other friends that helped me in the process of my first batch and we are all hooked. They will also be buying the same kit to start their own homebrews. Cheers/Prost

Big mouth bubbler lid
Very happy with the purchase minus one little design flaw in the big mouth bubbler lid, it doesn't stay on during the first few days of fermentation because the lid isn't a screw on lid
September 26, 2016
First time brewer.
This is my first time brewing and we used the Big Mouth Bubbler. I just bottled them last weekend and I am waiting for them to carbonate! Can't wait to try the beer.

Big Mouth bubbler/ Caribou slobber kit is a hit!
Had a seasoned homebrew buddy of mine help. Took about 3 1/2 hrs,... Used it right outta the box,... Very little prep out side of sanitization,... Can hardly wait to 6 wks for fermentation, but I'm stoked! xo - Dez from Kansas City :) #goroyals

Best customer service
We haven't used it quite yet, starting a new brew tomorrow, but I'd like to give a shout out to the N. Brewer customer service. I ordered mine and didn't realize I'd calculated the date I needed it wrong and called them up. They didn't even upcharge me for a faster delivery (although I offered!) but assembled it early so I would have it in time for the girlfriends birthday. They were a huge help.

One flaw - the bottle filler
I have used the Deluxe Starter kit twice now, once for a free-form cider recipe and just this month for the included Caribou Slobber recipe. What a great kit and great support from NB! My first issue was the large mouth bubble lid - it popped off while fermenting. I contacted NB and found the fault was my own - the lid and fermentor need to be dry. I still used duct tape, though, to make sure. The kit has everything you need, and I added on the Gravity kit to check my fermentation. My only issue has been the bottle filler, which seems to be defective in that I get a small stream of beer (or cider) when used. I contacted NB about this, and within a few hours, a new one (spring loaded filler) is on its way. NB really wants to make sure its customers are happy. I would recommend anyone buying the Deluxe kit also shell out for the gravity measuring kit and the spring loaded bottle filler.

Easy as baking a cake
The kit is great. It was actually much more simple than I had imagined it would be to brew beer at home. Boil, add, cool, pitch, and boom! I'm still waiting on my first brew to finish, but when I moved it to the secondary fermenter.......OMG......the smell was amazing. Bottling this weekend and in two weeks I will see how it turned out! I highly recommend the big mouth kit. Makes cleaning so easy and they are much lighter than a glass carboy.
October 12, 2016
Awesome kit. Add a pot and you are ready to rock and roll!!!
September 15, 2016
The kids are grown, back to brewing!
Works great, everything I needed to start brewing again. The big mouths are easier to clean and lighter to carry that the carboys I used to use 15 years ago.

How does the lid secure to the carboy? Is there any concern of it not being airtight?
B R on Nov 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The lid relies on two overhanging edges and a tight secure screwed on lid to seal. In our tests the seal should be sufficient to give an air tight seal. It helps to get the lid all foamy with star san before putting it on. We sell a universal lid with an easy to clean gasket as well. It is not included here since a plastic BMB should not need any better of a seal.
Want to start brewing my own beer. I'm a Coors light drinker, is there anything similar?
R U on Feb 3, 2016

We do have a few its that will be lighter, but the tricky thing about Coor's Light is that it's a lager beer, rather than an ale. Lagers are more difficult to brew because they require somewhat precise refrigeration controls. Almost all our kits are ale kits for this reason. Lagers are a pretty advanced thing. Super light lagers are even more difficult though, and it's really, really difficult to get it that clear and light. This style is arguably the most difficult style to brew, believe it or not!

But cream ales are sometimes considered to be the "ale version" of the light lager.

Basically, a cream ale is an american light lager, but with ale yeast. It won't be as clean or clear, but it will be pretty light, and just about as close as you can get with ale yeast and ale techniques.

I hope that helps, let me know if you have any further questions.


Does this kit come with a hydrometer? If not do I need one?
J E on Dec 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Well the whole point of having a Hydrometer, is to get your gravity right, and ABV. That being said I didn't need the Hydro meter to make my beer. And in fact I just harvested this beer three weeks ago and it taste delicious. I did all the instructions without a Hydro meter. However, seeing as my first batch of beer that I have ever made in my life came out ridiculously good, I am super bummed that I was not equipped with at least knowing all the information about my beer. I would have liked to known the ABV of this first beer. It would have added to my excitement. That being said, I have since then but a hydrometer of my own. Yes it should be something that your including your kit. A cheap little one wouldn't cost much more. I picked up one at a local brewery store for 30$bucks altogether. And that was the most expensive one. So yes, please put this Hydro meter in the deluxe kit from now on.
If you are getting this for a gift for someone who has never brewed before, what else would you include so they have everything they need on Christmas night to start a batch?
E M on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Emily,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! I would most definitely recommend the 5 gallon stainless kettle to do the boil. I would also recommend the Mad Brewer Beer Testing Kit, though this is not necessary, the book that comes with it is very nice to have as a reference, and they hydrometer is a great tool to have to know what is going on during fermentation. I hope that this helps! Have a wonderful day!
With the recipe kit that is included ( I ordered the Irish Ale) is priming sugar included and is the yeast dry or liquid?
Mike H on Dec 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are. The Danstar Nottingham dry ale yeast and a 5 oz. pouch of priming sugar is included.
Is there an option to purchase this kit with the siphonless fermentors?
H A on Nov 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is not an option for that right now. Sorry but thanks for the request!
Does the kit come with sanitizer?
B H on Oct 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This kit does not include sanitizer.
Is it possible to upgrade this kit to Glass Big Mouth Bubbler fermenters?
J E on Oct 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are two starter options. One has plastic carboys and the other has glass. The difference between the two kits is only $10 so it's really based on your preference which one you get. Happy brewing!
How does this product compare with the That is, for a beginner who is looking for his first kit, and wants a kit to use for quite some time... which would be the better package/deal?
G R on Sep 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Both have their benefits and drawbacks. Plastic can be scratched and stained ruining the fermentors. However these are easy to clean and very light and unbreakable. The wide mouth also makes dry hop additions very easy if you like hoppy beers! The traditional deluxe kits uses glass carboys

which are heavy and breakable. However

they are unscratchable and can last forever if they don't get damaged. I recommend investing in a way to carry the carboys to make it easier

like a brew hauler carrying strap

if you got with the deluxe.
What are the dimensions & weight of the parcel and are all components in the one container?
N I on Sep 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, everything was in the one container. I don?t have the box but it was about 30?tall x 30?long x 15-18?wide and probably 25-30lbs.
Are there material for brew beer(ex: malt,hop and yeast)?
A shopper on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi there,
This starter kit comes with a recipe kit that will have everything you need to brew a beer. There are three different kits to choose from. Cheers!
Is there a glass big mouth option
N U on Jan 1, 2016

Sorry, not at this time. I'll pass along the suggestion.


Will there be a version of this featuring the glass Big Mouth Bubbler?
R A on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Right now there are not plans in place for a version with the glass Big Mouth Bubblers.
Do the instructions come in Spanish?
