  • 1 gallon fermentation jug with cap and airlock
  • Mini Auto-siphon and tubing
  • Bottle filler
  • 8 oz Easy Clean cleanser
  • Bottle capper and caps
  • Your choice of recipe kit
  • FREE "Homebrewing 100: The Small Batch Way" DVD
  • You supply:

  • 2 gallon kettle
  • Approx. 1 dozen pry-off 12 oz beer bottles
  • HERE’S THE FUN PART! Every starter kit comes complete with your choice of recipe kit. 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.

    White House Honey AleAn original recipe brewed by White House staff and shared with the world as a Northern Brewer kit. Built on a big foundation of malt with strong tones of biscuit and toffee, White House Honey Ale plays down hop bitterness and plays up the fruity and caramelly aspect of English malt and yeast.

    White House Honey Porter - More than just simply black and roasty, this porter builds consensus with generous applications of sweet caramel and toasty Munich malts, while moderate bitterness and a pound of honey lets us all find common ground. 

    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.

    Perfect for the space and time challenged- seriously, get this. Review by Matthew

    I have not been able to brew for years now due to space issues and time constraints. This has been perfect. The little one gallon jug sits on my kitchen counter bubbling away. I bottle into four 750ml bottles and it takes 45 minutes start to finish.

    I just bottled my second batch while drinking the Caribou Slobber that came with the kit. It came out great! Northern Brewer has been great too- when the bottle filler from the kit came defective they replaced it without question. (Posted on 7/26/14)

    I got this kit with absolute ZERO experience in brewing....I just wanted to give it a try! This great little kit comes with everything you need to get started along with very comprehensive instructions. Be warned though - Once you get started, its super addicting!! :) (Posted on 4/24/14)
    Great Kit Review by Frankie

    After a ton of debating I bought this kit with the Whitehouse Honey Ale recipe kit. I also bought a second carboy and the Dead Ringer Recipe kit. I have both fermenting right now and will be ready to bottle in a week. Kit comes with just about everything I needed other than the kettle, bottles, and a hydrometer. The only complaint I have is the description doesnt say how many caps come with the kit(20), that may or may not be enough for both batches but isnt that big of a deal. Instructions and videos are easy to follow which made the process go smoothly. Im ready to brew my next batch soon!

    Great Starter Kit Review by Dustin

    After a minor shipping delay, my kit finally arrived. Everything I expected to see in the kit was there and well packed. This is the 3 different kit I've recieved from 3 different companies. I have to say this is the best. The price was slightly higher than the last one I purchased but came with more equipment. I plan to continue refining my brew technique on a few more 1-gallon batches. Before long, I will be purchasing a 5-gallon kits, and I'm 100% sure it will come from Northern Brewer. (Posted on 3/11/14)
    My husband loved this! Review by Janna

    I got this as a gift for my husband who had no previous beer brewing experience. His first batch was the American Wheat, and we just cracked open a bottle and it turned out awesome (even with a couple of minor beginner mistakes) The instructions were clear and easy to follow. He can't wait to start a new batch. This is a perfect gift for anyone who enjoys drinking beer. A fun way to start a cool new hobby! Thanks NB for the fast shipping and reasonable prices!

    Great way to start brewing or if you have little space Review by Christopher
    Rating
    This little kit is awesome! If you don't have a lot of room or you want to dabble with home brewing on the cheap, this is a great way to go. I would suggest that you get an extra airlock or two. Be prepared for blow off, I've had it happen twice. I would add ½ " ID tubing for this purpose to connect to the top tube piece of the three part air lock as the piece that comes with the kit takes some finesse to get on. Even with those two suggestions I still give it 5 stars because if you are a newbie, every site warns you to be prepared for blow off. For the price, you really do get most of what you need. I would go ahead and get an extra ingredient kit, as you learn more and get better if what you just did right or wrong is still fresh in your mind. (Posted on 2/18/14)
    Fun and Yum Review by AA

    I gave this kit as a gift to my boyfriend with the Irish Red Ale. We love drinking beer and were interested in brewing but didn't think we had the space, as we live in a very small apartment. The process was very well explained through the instructional video and pamphlet included, we had a lot of fun doing it, and the beer turned out great. I'd definitely recommend this kit for anybody who wants to try brewing but has limited space. (Posted on 2/12/14)
    A "gateway" kit :) Review by Rowan

    My husband and I weren't sure if we wanted to start brewing (lots of overhead, chance of a bad batch, etc.) but this little systems (and the kits) are just awesome! So fast, easy, and fun! They make ~9-10 bottles each and are a great way to experiment! (Posted on 2/5/14)
    Great for Small Apartment Review by Chris

    I wanted to get in to homebrew but was cautious to get the 5gal set because of I live in a smaller apartment. Ended up getting the 1gal for a gift and it was perfect. I'm excited to practice on this small setup and scale up when I have the space (Posted on 2/2/14)
