Ready to embark on your grand homebrewing adventure, but don't know where to start? The best way to start your homebrew journey is with a Beer Starter Kit from Northern Brewer.

Deluxe Brewing Starter Kit - # 1 Best Seller

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. This homebrew starter kit uses a pair of large bottles called carboys as vessels in a two-stage fermentation process. Why do 2 Carboys equal Better Beer? Using carboys to perform a secondary fermentation allows yeast and proteins to fall out of suspension, leaving the beer more crisp, clean, and clearer versus only using a primary fermenter. 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! As with our other kits, you get to choose from 3 hand-picked beer recipes. And when you brew with Northern Brewer you never brew alone - you'll also get a copy of our FREE Getting Started in HomeBrew DVD, plus a laminated step-by-step instruction sheet for the day.

Two final pieces of equipment you'll need: a boil kettle and bottles. If you have a stock pot that can hold at least 3 gallons, that will work fine. Otherwise, you'll want to pick up a 5-gallon kettle, which is an inexpensive option that works great for the beginning brewer. You'll also need some empty bottles to put all that beer in. If you can get and clean 48 used beer bottles (the pry-off style, not the twist-off) then you're in business. We also sell 12 oz beer bottles and 22 oz beer bottles; two cases of either will be enough for your first batch. Buy Now
