Product Details

Drinking homebrew is one of life’s simplest pleasures. And we feel that brewing it should be pretty simple, too. That’s why we crafted the Essential Brewing Starter Kit. It combines a simplified brewing process with easy-to-use equipment you don’t need a chemistry degree to operate. So you can easily dip your toe in the waters of homebrewing without getting in over your head.


  • 6.5 Gallon Fermenting Bucket, Grommeted Lid, Airlock
  • 6.5 Gallon Bottling Bucket, Bottling Spigot, Bottle Filler, Bottling Tubing
  • Auto-Siphon, Siphon Tubing
  • Beer Bottle Brush, Bottle Capper, 60 Caps
  • Instructional DVD, One Step Cleaner/Sanitizer

To help you get a real taste for just how easy brewing can be, we’ve hand-picked three great beer recipe kits for you to choose from (see their descriptions below!). And just to make sure everything goes without a hitch, we’re including a bonus, FREE Getting Started DVD, plus a laminated step-by-step instruction sheet for brew day.

In just a few weeks, you’ll be sampling your first batch of homebrew. Once you’re hooked and ready to move onto more complex brews, you’ll find the Essential Brewing Starter Kit is easily expandable, too. The perfect place to start a long brewing career.

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 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.

Is there anything else I need to brew my first batch?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: This starter kit comes with everything you need to brew your first recipe except for a kettle. We recommend purchasing a 5 gallon or larger stainless kettle in order to brew, though a large cooking kettle off 3 to 3.5 gallons capacity will suffice for 5 gallon partial-boil batches.

Can I do a secondary with this kit? Do I need to?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: An additional fermentation vessel is necessary for secondary fermentation. Secondary fermentation can help in melding all the flavors together to add depth and complexity, but it is certainly not a necessary step for making awesome beer!
