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. The ThermoStar Dual-Mode Digital Temperature Controller with optional 12" stainless probe ensures 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.

American Wheat Beer Or keep it clean and crisp with our American Wheat—a spritzy and refreshing warm-weather brew, light in color and body, with a subtle but- heady dose of West Coast hoppiness. Deliciously drinkable.

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.

A few small problems Review by James
Rating
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!

Great starter kit Review by Rhodewarrior

I have only done beer kits that were 1 gallon or 2 gallon and this kit is amazing for taking it to the next level. Even though I had most of the extras already it's great to have some backups in case you need them or something breaks. I can't say enough about how great the widemouth on the fermenter is for cleaning and for pouring the cool wort. The seal worked great (I was a little worried about that) and it was very easy to carry compared to its glass counterpart. I highly recommend this kit and the bigmouth bubbler for anyone who wants to get started on 5g batches or add more fermenters and equipment to the beer making lab. (Posted on 2/6/15)
