5 weeks later, finally tasting my beer!
Total newbie here, so this is coming from a first time brewer. I've read a lot of info (mostly from John Palmer and another friend who brews a lot), and figured what the heck - let's give this a shot. My first brew day took a very long time and I sanitized everything meticulously. Unfortunately I also have a wife and a 14 month old daughter, so that sanitation was quickly soiled again and at that point all I did was rinse. Left this in primary for three weeks (instead of the recommended two weeks), had issues with lots of air in the siphon going from primary to bottling bucket, but I bottled anyway. Two weeks later I threw a few in the fridge, waited one more day, poured into a chilled glass and took my first drink...WOW! Far exceeded my expectations. Boy it was good. Seriously, I was so surprised it was that easy for a newbie to make GOOD beer. This kit is not perfect, nor is it fancy, but it is EASY, instructions were good, and the beer is great. Right away I did invest in a wort cooler (and I'm VERY glad I did - cuts even more time off of the brew day), I did purchase a 6.5 and 5 gallon carboy so I can get more than one batch going at a time, and now I have the oxygen stone kit on order, too. The only con I can really think of is how cheap the boil kettle is, but seriously, for $100? This kit is a steal of a deal. Try it - you won't be disappointed. If you like it, you'll know what you want to upgrade next. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone who has ever thought about getting in to home brewing. Skip the $50 kits at the big box stores - they can't hold a candle to this kit.

Good Value but far From Perfect
First off, this kit really is a great value. You'd be hard pressed to throw together half of the useful items in this kit for less than $99. Also, I didn't find the instructions to be particularly vague or misleading, and I really had no trouble with any of the steps in the process from brew day to opening the finished beer. The kit really does include everything you need (emphasis on NEED) to brew a batch of drinkable beer.That said, the kit has some notable drawbacks and flaws. The thing that immediately struck me is that the kit doesn't include enough sanitizer for the entire process. In fact, the little packet of sanitizer included with the kit only makes about two gallons of effective solution, while it would have been nice to have had five gallons on hand for brew day. Furthermore, the sanitizer is a simple percarbonate cleanser (like OxiClean), it would have been nice if NB included a more effective chemical like Star San or Iodophor.While most of the items in the kit are good quality and will be useful in the future, the bottle filler that comes with the kit is an absolute piece of garbage. Why NB includes that leaky piece of junk instead of the spring loaded model (which only costs about $3) is beyond me. In addition to the bad bottle filler, the kit is also missing a few items which, while not essential to brewing, are extremely helpful. The most notable missing item is a thermometer, as the instructions tell you to keep your steeping grains within a certain temperature range; luckily, I already had a probe thermometer on hand. A hydrometer, while not strictly necessary, would also have been a useful addition to the kit. The kit also doesn't include any bottles, which, while understandable for shipping reasons, is a also a ding on the product.Last and definitely least is the beer itself. Let's just say that now I totally understand why you won't find the Block Party Amber Ale for sale as a standalone kit on this site. The kit produces a beer which is drinkable, and that's about the nicest thing I can say about it. It would be nice if NB introduced an option to purchase one of their better kits for $10 or $20 more, as currently, the only way to get one of NB's retail kits is to either purchase one separately or to purchase the deluxe starter kit, which costs nearly TWICE as much as this one.All in all, I'd recommend the kit if, like me, you're running into this homebrewing thing without really having any idea what you're doing. However, I'd also suggest spending another $50 or $60 for a probe thermometer, bottle of sanitizer, bottle filler, and one of NB's better extract beer kits.

Good kit, fun experience, vague instructions included
Exciting experience for beginner's who are looking to start homebrewing with extracts. Comes with just about everything needed to minus the hydrometer for gravity testing, bottles, and a adequate amount of sanitizing solution (recommend ordering star san). The muslin grain bag included with my kit was damaged and didn't notice until i pured the grains in and they all fell out of the bottom so I had to start brewing a day late until I was able to replace it and the grains from a local homebrew shop so thoroughly inspect your included items. Other than the hiccups the entire brewing process was easy and fun! Wouldn't quote the "easy as making mac & cheese" quote from the training videos but brewing was fairly a breeze. The lid of my fermentation bucket wouldn't seal properly as that bucket was slightly warped. The kit comes with two recipe instructions so that was a bit confusing but the paper instructions were more easy to follow then the two-sided laminate instructions as they had conflicting instructions on some steps. I added another ounce of hops towards the end of my wort boil for more character but is not necessary, even though, the sample of my beer before bottling was a hit! Bottling was messy due to the bottle filler was very leaky so moving from bottle to bottle made a huge mess. I would recommend this to start if there's a budget but would highly recommend just going forward with the Deluxe Brewing Starter kit. Looking forward to the finished product in about two + weeks after conditioning.

meh...better directions needed
so my first batch will probably taste like a funky sock. the instructions are not the best. it states put in a warm dark place, aparently that means 65degrees. well mine went in the garage. I love in florida. second issue is the bottle filler leaks like a mother, creating a mess. I think the kit is designed so you can brew a beer, but nothing that will impress, and the limitations of equipment make you purchase different better equipment. spend the money upfront so you won't have to immediately upgrade

Awesome Product
This product is awesome for learning how to brew. It comes with an easy to follow kit to understand the process before experimenting on your own. This also give a good set of basic utensils that can be used for almost any size batch. Going from this kit down to one gallon is very easy and will only require a one gallon glass Carboy which Northern Brewer also has and it is great quality. Highly recommend for anyone looking to getting into brewing. P.S. Their customer service and brew masters have very good hours to get in touch with them about ANYTHING beer related. Hold times are usually under a minute and this had also been a huge help in leaning the process.

Great kit , all the parts need to brew my 1st 5 gal batch. Called in with question an the brewers helped me out even on a sundayb:) Thanks guys @Northern Brew

Pretty Good
I got this kit after already having some equipment and borrowing some from a buddy so I would be able to run multiple batches at a time and was missing some parts that this kit happened to include. As far as equipment goes this is a great starter kit, just missing a few things. The quality was very good, except for the bottle filler, which I STRONGLY recommend you buy another at time of purchase because this one is horrible. Bottling day would have been a disaster had not my buddy been right over with his when I went to fill. On that same day I bottled Chinook IPA and the amber ale. Chinook turned out great, but amber ale was the worse I have brewed by far and is not even drinkable. Very tart off-putting taste, almost taste like a really bad cider.. Both initial and final gravity reads were spot on, but I did let it get above 170 for about 2 min when steeping and I don't know if that was the cause or not, but what I read from reviews was that this extract kit was fool proof.. guess not haha. Everything else I have ever gotten from NB I have been very impressed with.

Great kit for the starting brewer!
I was pleased to receive this as a Christmas gift. Having been a brewer on a hiatus, I was excited to get back into the hobby. I lost all of my equipment several years ago, so I needed to start from scratch. I must say, you will be hard pressed to find another starter kit, at this price point ($99), that you will be able to brew a batch of beer right out of the box (That's the claim anyhow). So in the name of providing an honest review, that is exactly what I did. (Side note: If you are ordering this item as a gift and want to keep prying eyes from seeing what it is, have it shipped somewhere else. The box shows up on your doorstep telling the world whats inside.)The box was packaged very professionally with everything expected and in perfect condition. You will find all items listed in the description as well as a catalogue and some literature/directions on how to brew. Their is also the coupon for 20% off an item, DO NOT lose this. You will quickly learn that you want/need more gadgets, or another recipe to brew. However, I was able to follow the directions and brew a very drinkable amber ale with only the items included in this kit. I ran into one issue right from the start though. The pot that is included with this kit has a small lip around the outside of the pot. Unfortunately, those of us with glass top ranges are at a disadvantage. I struggled to get the 2.5 gallons of wort up to a rolling boil. I conclude this is either a design flaw, or NB's way of getting us to purchase their Dark Star 2.0 propane burner. (It worked, because it is most likely what I will be using my 20% off on. Actually looking to buy that and the 8 gallon Tall Boy combo) Everything else worked flawlessly. Having brewed previously, there are a number of small items I would recommend you purchase before you brew your first batch. However, I am not here to sell you anything. I would give this product and overall experience an A-. This is absolutely the bare minimum equipment you will need to brew your first batch of beer. At the $99 price point, you can not go wrong with the kit including a pot and your first set of ingredients. If you are looking for a gift for a starting brewer, two thumbs up. Thank you Northern Brewer for offering this kit and allowing me the opportunity to get back into brewing. I look forward to future transactions. If you have any questions about this review or my experience with this product please feel free to email me, empiricalbrewer@gmail.comCheers!Kirk

Excellent Product!
Everything you need is in this kit and at an affordable price! The Amber Ale is a great tasting beer too! I was most impressed with the help of the Beer Masters as the brewing process began. Following the recipe is so easy, I have already began my second batch!

Can I do a full boil 5 gallon batch with this kettle?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yespecially. What u do place about 3 gallons in the kettle, steep the grains then remove and malt extract then boil. When boil is done cool down and then add enough water to 5 gallon. Hope this helps.
im a newbie and have been reading everything i can on kits. this looks like the one i will go with (have looked at mr beer, brewery best, brooklyn, others). so here are four questions. how much beer does this kit make with initial? what key pieces are missing, eg thermometer, hydrometer (understand bottles)? can i use beer recipe kits from others, eg mr beer or brooklyn brewery? when does sale end?
V U on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This kit is a great starter kit at a great price! It is missing the hydrometer (I got one with a beer thief for like $15 on NB) and thermometer but it has pretty much everything else you will need to make 5 gallon batches of beer. The ingredient kit that comes with it will make 5 gallons of beer and you can use any 5 gallon kit after that. The only other thing you may want to get is a bottle of star-San sanitizer. I find it way easier to use than the powder that comes with the kit, and the kit only comes with enough sanitizer for one batch so if you think you will really be getting into it, I would get more. Have fun!
Hi, I'm considering this kit for my husband as an anniversary gift and would like your recommendation on what type of hydrometer and thermometer to purchase along with it. Thanks in advance for your help!
J S on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I just got a normal meat thermometer about 10 inches long and it has worked for everything I need. I don't think the hyrometer is a necessity but I purchased one at the local homebrew store for about $10.00. Both the hyrometer and thermometer I use are pretty standard and can be bought about anywhere.
Can I use the bottling bucket as a secondary fermentor?
K E on Feb 18, 2016
Would Carbonation tablets be beneficial when brewing the Block Party Amber Ale?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: YES.. first I did the Block Party Ale with the conditioning sugar and then did another batch using the tablets and through my experience, the tablets produced a MUCH better end product. I would say after using both, my preference definitely leans towards the tablets.
I'm actually looking to purchase this for my fiancé. Just wondering if it comes with bottles to store the beer in?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought this kit for my son in law and no, it doesn't come with bottles. My son in law saved bottles from commercial beers.
Does it come with instructions? As a first time brewer I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing!
D J on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It does come with basic instructions on how to brew beer. And the ingredient kit comes with good instructions too. You just need to do it tho to figure it out as you go and any questions you have can be answered on the NB forum or by Google
Is the kid of the fermenter not supposed to snap on or be tight? Its like it doesn't fit correctly and I feel like air is escaping out the top. I have not seen any bubbling yet unless I apply a lot of pressure to the lid.
E S on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Press down hard. It should snap on tight but you do have to press hard. You should also have your air lock in place. After 24-48 hours you should have some serious beer farts going on. Then it's normal to die down bc the yeast have less to eat. When you bottle your beer it will seem pretty flat. But that's what the priming sugar is for... produce more bubbles once on the bottle.
Does it come with a hydrometer? I don't see it listed
T H on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Bill,

The Brew. Share. Enjoy. Starter kit does not include a hydrometer.
How long does it take to brew 5 gallons from start to drink?
B A on Feb 12, 2016

It really depends on the style of beer, and how each stage goes. First is primary fermentation, which typically takes 2 weeks. Secondary fermentation is optional for most styles, and can go from 2 weeks to many months. You can skip this step with many styles. Finally, bottle conditioning usually takes 2-4 weeks, but less time if the temps are warmer.

Basically, 4 weeks is pretty much as quick of a turnaround as you can expect. Let me know if you have a specific beer kit in mind, and I can offer more exact input!


What should the final gravity be on this recipe?
L U on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It ought to reach about 1.014, or 1.012, somewhere like that. That would make it about 4% ABV. - Mike W , Northern Brewer
What 3 additional pieces are needed?
A K on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Allen

This kit has everything that you need to start brewing extract batches. One thing that may be needed is bottles


or whatever you decide to package your beer in. I also recommend getting a hydrometer to take readings of the original gravity and final gravity to determine the alcohol content of the beer. Not necessary

but its always best to take as many notes and data points throughout a brew as possible so if something goes wrong

you can troubleshoot much more efficiently. If

when you mention needing three additional pieces

you are talking about moving up to doing all-grain batches

then there are a number of things that one would need. The simplest set up for all grain would be: http://www.northernbrewer.com/fermenters-favorites-essential-all-grain-brewing-starter-kit-10-gallon
We just purchased this kit to make 5 gallon batches. Now, we are trying to determine what additional equipment will be needed to make a 1 gallon batch instead. So far we have the 2 gallon kettle, Little Big Mouth Bubbler and airlock (fermentation), and 2 gallon bucket (bottling) which I have referenced below. Is there any siphoning/tubing, etc. we will need for this smaller set up that we cannot use from the 5 gallon Brew Share Enjoy Starter Kit? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: I went from 5 gallon to 1 gallon brewing some time ago. Since then I have moved to 3 gallon brewing. My point is I'm working off of memory. From memory I think the only additional equipment I needed was the fermenting bucket. I also bought a 1 gallon carboy that needed a new rubber stopper but the airlocks from the 5 gallon still worked fine. I used the same hoses/tubing. As far as I can remember all I needed additionally was the 1) bucket. 2)carboy 3) rubber stopper for the carboy
Does the 20% off cupon code comes into the box?
Steven M on Feb 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yup each kit you buy comes with a 20% off coupon. Plus they send you different deals and promotions, coupons, etc. if you sign up for the emails. Some are pretty good, others okay.
Is this kit an extract kit or brew in bag or both?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is both you have an malt extract with special grains that you have to "teabag" in the brew pot for 20 minutes.
I am purchasing this as a gift and want them to have everything to start off with. Is there any additional items needed?

Also are you able to get different recipes like an ipa rather than an amber ale?
H A on Sep 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is a very good starter package to get going brewing. A couple of good add-ons might be a Hydrometer for measuring fermentation progress, or a Wort Chiller to cool the boiled beer quickly. But these are not essential to getting started, most us us began without those items. They are nice to have, though, and we would suggest them for any brewer. This particular kit package is only sold with the Block Party Amber Ale kit, it is not offered with any other recipe kit choices. - Mike W, Northern Brewer
I just ordered this kit. I know it comes with a fermenting bucket, and a bottling bucket. Still a bit of a newbie.

Do you ferment and then switch to the bottling bucket? Or ferment in the bottling bucket? Thanks!
D E on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: After fermentation is complete, you'll transfer the beer into the bottling bucket. From there, you'll fill the bottles through the spigot and bottle filler. This helps to clarify the beer, and the beer is only in the bottling bucket for about half an hour or so.
Is this extract kit liquid extract or DME or can I choose on checkout? If liquid, how many ounces?
T B on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The beer recipe kit in this package has a 6-lb jug of liquid malt extract in it. There is no option to change the beer kit ingredients in the kit package. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Is the siphon included an auto siphon?
K V on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's the same siphon see here:

I've been comparing this brew share to the deluxe and big mouth bubbler kits and want to know if there is a big difference between fermenting in a bucket as compared to glass carboy or bubbler? And could this equipment be used if in the future I want to move to all grain?
R O on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Buckets are work great for primary fermentation as they are cheap. However, they are oxygen permeable so using a carboy that does not let oxygen through is better if you do two stage fermentations.

All of the equipment included can be used when brewing all grain.
Is the new price for a limited time only?
D M on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not set NB pricing or specials.
My kit's bubble airlock did not have a rubber seal to hold it or secure it on the lid? Was this suppose to be part of the kit or something additional? It will not stand in the lid and just falls.
M E on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The fermentor lids should have a red rubber grommet in the hole and that is what the airlock sits in. If you do not see the red rubber grommet, and it is not in the packaging, it must have fallen out somewhere and our customer service is happy to fix you up.
My kit came with Midwest Supply Oxygen Wash. I'm unsure if this is an actual sanitizer or just a cleaner?
Z A on Jul 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product is a cleanser, but it's good enough for sanitizing nice new equipment. After items have been used a few times, it's a good idea to step up to a true sanitizer, like Star San or Saniclean, and use that in combination with a cleanser like Oxygen Wash or One Step. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
I started fermenting my brew 4 days ago. I have yet see bubbles in my air lock. Now I'm smelling the brew around the lid. I got the lid locked down tight. Is my brew going to make it or do I have a problem?
A D on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure your beer is fine. Bubbling is not the best indicator of fermentation. If you take the lid off and see that there is a crusty ring around the edge of the bucket and/or foam on top of the beer, you know that fermentation is taking place. You can also taste the beer. If it still tastes sweet and sugary it may not have fermented, but if it tastes more like actual beer, all is fine.
Is beer brewing something I do in the kitchen, garage, or ???
J E on Jun 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Personally, I would do it outside using a turkey frier or grill burner as a kitchen stove does not really get hot enough. When you have a rapid boil (as you are supposed to) it will make a fair mess so outside is best, plan on spraying off your patio or deck afterward. It is worth it though so brew on!!
How big is the package?
P H on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 36x12x12 maybe it's 2 buckets and a kettle... The kit is stacked on the top of the buckets in the same box
Silly question from a brewing newbie - but if fermentation is still taking place after two weeks, would it hurt the beer to leave it in primary for more than two weeks? (Of course, this is assuming that I did an adequate job with sanitation.) Are there any major pros/cons to more time in primary? Thanks!
David P on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is always better to leave the beer a little longer than a little shorter. With a fermentation bucket, I would not leave it in primary for more than 4 weeks before proceeding - but after that long, it would be done fermenting and conditioning. Cheers!
How many bottles I might need if I make a 5 gallons batch?
Besides the hydrometer anything I should buy?
K E on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have 5 dozen 12oz bottles ready. You will probably need less, but some get contaminated in handling and a few extra is good prep. Also, check for cracks as you rinse and sanitize. If they are reused, eventually some will chip and crack. I never use a hydrometer or thermometer, but I'm sure it won't hurt to have them.
If I get this kit, what would I need in the future to upgrade to glass carboys?
A N on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not much, you could buy a 5-gallon carboy and stopper to use as a secondary vessel, and if you wanted to you could also get a 6 or 6.5 gallon one to use as a primary fermenter. All you'd need is the carboys themselves, stoppers and airlocks for them, and perhaps a carboy brush to clean them. ( Unless you got Big Mouth Bubblers, no brush required, you can reach inside with a sponge! ) - Mike W, Northern Brewer
does the 6.5 gallon fermentor have a spigot?
P K on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: One of the two buckets in this kit does have a spigot.
