77 Review(s)

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 are already passionate about hand-crafted beer, like we are, here’s the Deluxe Brewing Starter Kit.

Contains:

  • 6 Gallon Glass Carboy Primary Fermentor, Fermometer, Bung, Airlock, Blowoff Assembly
  • 5 Gallon Glass Carboy 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
  • Cleaner/Sanitizer
  • Carboy Brush

 

Our Deluxe kit features a pair of large glass bottles called carboys 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!

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 substantial craft beer, this ale is full-bodied, smooth, and 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, crowd pleasing 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.

One Stoked BF/Superb Cust Serv Review by Diane

I got this kit last week as a birthday gift for my bf and unfortunately the carboy was cracked from base to neck in the fermenting bucket. UPS delivered it after Northern's business hours, and I called and left a message. I followed up the following day and to my surprise, a carboy, and bucket was already being shipped. Got those two days later. Customer service is excellent! Which will have our family being long and loyal customers. BF is stoked to start up and has several more recipes already highlighted to purchase. (Posted on 4/14/13)

BEST Starter Kit for 1st time Brewers. Review by Richard

After my Brother got me hooked on home brewing, I went shopping for a Home brewing kit of my own. I went to the local shop for a starter kit but decided to wait and check online. I'm very glad I did because as soon as I came across the Northern Brewer web site I knew it was going to be my final shopping source. These guys have the BEST Brewing in a box out there on the market. I was amazed at how the great the packaging was, as I worried about my glass items arriving broken. Everything was packaged adequetly and in a very organized manner. I purchased the Deluxe kit with glass carboys and couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend this kit, as well as getting the Gravity Testing kit and the Fresh Start kit. Trust me, you will need these kits as well. I also recommend watching their online videos, as they show you in detail on how to do your First Brew. (Posted on 2/20/13)
Great Kit - Great Customer Service Review by Sam Rackham

I received my NB deluxe kit with BetterBottle carboys last week (after some shipping delay due to a delay in NB receiving more BetterBottles). NB was very good at providing me status of the order during this time. They were also very accommodating when I asked questions regarding the kit before my purchase. All of the components of the kit appear quality and all of the getting started documentation was excellent. I brewed my first batch with the kit today (porter of my own design - extract with specialty grains) and the parts of the kit I used today all worked flawlessly. The BetterBottles are much easier to carry compared to glass carboys I have helped move in the past and seem so much safer. Looking forward to seeing how this batch comes out and doing my next batch. I would definitely recommend NB to anyone! (Posted on 2/19/13)

Got a Mr. Beer kit for christmas, quickly got hooked, and had to get the "real deal." After weeks of shopping, including the local brew shops, this kit could not be beat. Just used it las weekend and could not be happier. (Posted on 2/5/13)
Almost Perfect! Review by John
Rating
After attending a brew day with my brother, I knew I had to do this for myself. He pointed out a few items that his starter kit did not come with and that he lamented only having a single carboy, so I ordered the deluxe kit with glass carboys and the Irish Red extract kit.

The equipment itself arrived in perfect condition and the kit has almost everything you would need (had to get a stock pot separately.)

Here is where the "almost" perfect comes in. The Irish Red extract kit was a sticky mess when I opened it. I did ship 2nd day Air, so it is plausible that pressure changes caused the malt extract to leak, but it seemed to me that the lid just wasn't on tight enough. At any rate, it didn't leak enough to prevent me from brewing. What did bring me to a halt was the fact that the Willamette hops was completely missing from the kit.

I got back on the website and started a customer service chat explaining the situation. Within 2 minutes and very few questions asked, Northern Brewer had a new complete Irish Red ale kit on the way to me. That is some serious customer service!

Highly recommend this kit!

Perfect kit with very little left out Review by Kyle

I got this kit a little over a month ago and just bottled my first batch of Irish Red. It tastes better than I would have thought and I had a great time last night brewing a Patersbier. This kit comes well packaged and the DVD spells out everything you need to do to brew successfully. I think the kit is a great value but I would have liked to have gotten a brew kettle along with everything else. Besides bottles it is the one thing I noticed you absolutely have to have in addition to this kit.

I couldn't recommend this kit enough and will be splurging on one for my brother to try and get him in on the hobby/obsession. (Posted on 12/31/12)

Great Starter Kit Review by Alex
Rating
This was my first brewing kit and I have been very pleased with the contents so far. After my first beer I bought a bottle tree and another secondary carboy to brew more often. Now we are doing about one brew per week and the kit has already paid for itself compared to the cost of similar beers from the liquor store. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in home brew. (Posted on 12/12/12)
