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.
