Folks tend to become very passionate about homebrewing after a batch or two, but we’ve also seen a lot of new brewers fall in love even before embarking upon their first fermentation. For those of you who, like us, are already passionate about hand- crafted beer, here’s the Deluxe Brewing Starter Kit.

Contains:

  • 6 Gallon Primary Fermentor, Fermometer, Bung, Airlock, Blowoff Assembly
  • 5 Gallon Secondary Fermentor, Fermometer, Bung, Airlock
  • 6.5 Gallon Bottling Bucket, Bottling Spigot, Bottle Filler, Bottling Tubing
  • Auto-Siphon, Siphon Tubing
  • Beer Bottle Brush
  • Bottle Capper, 60 Caps
  • Instructional Getting Started in Homebrewing DVD
  • PBW Cleaner
  • Star-San Sanitizer
  • Carboy Brush (Glass Only)

Our Deluxe kit uses a pair of large bottles called carboys—your choice of glass or plastic—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, cleaner- tasting beer as well as the ability to brew a wider range of styles as your confidence grows and sudsy repertoire expands!

To help speed you on your way, we’ve hand-picked three great beer recipe kits for you to choose from (see their descriptions below). And when you brew with Northern Brewer you never brew alone—you’ll also get a copy of our FREE Getting Started In Homebrewing DVD, plus a laminated step-by-step instruction sheet for brew day.

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.

 

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.

Excellent value and great all around kit Review by Scott
Rating
I upgraded to 5 gallons with the glass carboy option. I shopped around and found this to be the best economical value out there for an all glass fermenting. I've now done several batches with it and find it to be a great system. I recommend getting the carboy hauler straps for the glass - your back will thank you! Additionally, you'll soon want a greater supply of PBW and Star San, but those are cheap and easy to find. This kit really gives you everything you need to start, sans the cooking gear.

In short - I'm very happy with this setup and I'd buy it again! (Posted on 4/7/14)

This kit arrived with everything I needed to brew my first 5 gallon batch of beer. The quality seems great. Everything was in great shape. I'm sure I'll be using this for a very long time. (Posted on 3/29/14)

Best kit for the money!!! Review by Erik

I'm brand spanking new to the home brew world and I spent a good deal of time searching for the best kit I could find for the lowest amount of money. This kit rocks for the value. The Glass carboys are thick and sturdy and the kit includes everything you need to start your home brew adventures. The caribou slobber has been fermenting for 3 days now and everything looks great...cant wait to taste. Thanks Northern Brewer, you will have my return business for sure. (Posted on 3/23/14)
Worth every penny to get you started Review by Steve

I got this for Christmas, 2013. It was the best and most thoughtful present ever. It contains everything you need (at a very reasonable price) to brew just about anything via extract brewing (sans a brew kettle). Go for the deluxe kit. It you don't, you'll end up buying it all anyway. "Ferment on, fermentors". (Posted on 3/18/14)

This kit made the best beer of my life. Highly recommend. The red caper broke and Northern Brewer sent a new one out ASAP. I'm a loyal customer now being treated so well. You guys rock. (Posted on 3/10/14)
Fantastic Review by William

Brewed 14 months ago, added 2lbs clear Belgium candy, 8 oz. fresh sweet orange peel, and coriander @ 10 minutes before end of a 5gal boil. Bottled in 22 oz. bottles and let age for 6 months after 2 weeks primary and 6.5 months secondary. I swear, I brought 6 of them to a party and everyone wanted to know where I bought them. friend of mine at 6'8" 320 pounds had to "sit for a bit" after drinking one of them much faster than he should have.

Great Kit Review by BeerMe

my first beer making kit and couldn't be happier unless the supplied a couple extra fermometer strips and bigger containers of PBW and Starsan with it. I would be willing to pay extra for these additions myself. (Posted on 2/23/14)

For those of you that are on the ledge between the bucket kit and the glass bottle kit...I tell you go with this kit. I am very pleased with not only this kit...but the 5 star customer service that I have received from Northern! Pull the trigger on this kit...and go with the glass...you will not be sorry!
