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 BEST PART! The Deluxe Brewing Brewing Starter Kit featuring Big Mouth Bubbler® now includes our most popular kit: the Dead Ringer IPA.

Dead Ringer IPA is a larger-than-life American IPA beer kit with a hop aroma so thick you can almost see it. American base malt and crystal malt create the big body and supporting grainy sweetness, while charge after charge of 100% Centennial hops deliver pronounced bitterness with a dominant citrus aroma and flavor. In the glass you get a pale amber color, hop intensity and malt density - substance with the soul of a session beer. This IPA recipe kit has been a customer favorite for a decade.

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.

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

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

Ok
The kit was a good starter kit, but the lids on the big mouth bubblers would not stay on. I wish that they would have been a screw on lid. It would have been much better

Bubbler tops won't stay put
My main complaint is the tops of the bubblers will not stay on. I had to tape the tops down with packing tape. Now I have adhesive on the outside of the bubblers after removing the tape. Customer service did offer to let me return the bubblers for credit but by the time I pay for packing and shipping it would be almost be a wash. I think the screw on tops should be standard.

Deluxe Starter Kit?
I'm not so sure "deluxe" is the right word to describe this kit. The bottle filler is absolute junk and leaked to the point that after about the first few bottles I had to keep a bottle in hand to quickly swap out because it leaks incredibly bad. The capper leaves a lot to be desired and I was looking forward to enjoying this part of the brew. With this capper I see why people go to kegs. The Big Mouth Bubblers are great in that they have the large openings for cleaning etc, however, they are somewhat difficult to get the lid to seal tightly. Sort of confused how this kit is "deluxe," I mean it doesn't even have a clip for the racking cane.

Dean,

I'm sorry you had so much trouble with the bottle filler. If you would like a replacement filler you can either call us or respond to this email.

Cheers!

All great except...
I love the stuff! The big mouth bubblers are fantastic. I have some other equipment I have acquired and have been consolidating down to exactly what I need. I brewed my first batch with the equipment (Chinook IPA). All went well and I have a great tasting beer. One issue I ran into is the bottling capper doesn't seems to clamp the caps down all the way. I was very luck to have another old one on hand that worked. The caps didn't seem to work either (with either capper). I am also disappointed to read that the screw-on lids for the bubbler is discontinued. I have read the posts and agree that for high gravity beers that universal lid is going to blow right off. when it is pulled out of star san and placed right on the bubbler it fights to stay on. I have to dry the gasket off (which exposes it to contaminates) in order to get it to seal properly. Its fine for secondary, but I am very thankful I have at least 1 screw on lid. Other than that I love it. oh...the racking cane hose could be a foot longer. 6ft would be ideal...it gives beginner brewers some flexibility if they don't have pre built gravity tiers designed for home brewing. I have the counter and the floor. 4-5 ft is not enough hose. cheers!

A few small problems
I just bottled my first batch of Caribou Slobber Brown Ale so I can safely say I have used all the components. The big mouth bubblers were soooo much easier to clean and pour into. When it comes to pouring your wort into the bubbler I discovered it works best to put it on the floor then place the large funnel (purchased separately and highly recommend) in the opening. Place the large strainer (also purchased separately) on top of the funnel. Now you here is where I figured out a little brew hack. If you have lower opening cabinets open one and rest the handle of the strainer on the top of the cabinet door for pouring. This will save you lots of frustration as it stabilizes the strainer for pouring. Now my summary says a few small problems.... I just described the first one, the lack of extra equipment that IMO should be included for additional cost obviously but should at least be offered with the kit. The second problem is the beer bottling dispenser thing. Yea that thing is a piece of junk! I hooked it up to the buckets spout with all proper tubing and as soon as I got done filling the first beer bottle, the flow would not stop coming out! I immediately shut off the flow to avoid making a mess, tried to fix the problem and resumed flow only this time to have beer continually spewing out without even touching the bottom of a bottle. I disconnected the whole assemble and just used the spout to fill my bottles. Not only was that simpler, it was far more effective and didn't require me to be on the ground trying to fill bottles. Just save yourself the time and throw that thing away and use the spout to fill your bottles. Other than that this is a great system. I'm very happy with it and highly recommend it!

Junk
Didn't bother reading reviews or would have never purchased. Lid will not stay attached and continues to gently slide up and off anytime it is placed back on. So now I'm out the money on fermenters and a beer kit. I would not recommend this product, stick with the glass kit as I wish I'd had. Northern shouldn't even be selling this after doing further research online. This is my first beer kit and it makes me want to quit brewing.
Do yourself a favor and read reviews off site and you can thank me later.

Good but...
The kit gives you almost everything you need to start your first five gallon batch of brew. However, it is missing a no rinse sanitizer (only includes one step, which is a great cleaner). It is also missing the option of glass big mouth bubblers, adding bottles, and enough caps. Had the kit included this, it would be much much better.

Great kit, great packing, BUT......
I brewed years ago and decided to start again, all my old buckets had aged bad and were scratched up. I ordered this kit and a few other supplies. All components arrived packed well and fast! And now the but... and it's a BIG one. I should have read reviews on the Big Mouth Bubblers.... the lids push themselves up. No matter what I try, dry, wet, upside down seals, they still push out. I had to rig up some zipties to hold them down.

Is there any way to get the original screw on ones anymore?

I guess I should have stayed with tried a true buckets.

Everything else was perfect.
