Amazing starter kit
This is an amazing kit. Easy to follow instructions and there’s always someone you can talk to that will help you when you need it. Price is amazing for what you get

The process was easy to follow and I enjoyed the learning experience. The kit came with everything I needed. My only complaint is the stirrer that is included is not very good. Mine melted and warped the second time I used it.

Great starter kit
This is a great starter kit. Everything is neatly packaged. I just brew the block party ale and it smelt pretty good while it was boiling.

You will be happy.
The kit was awesome! It had everything I needed to get started. The only concern I had when brewing, as it is currently fermenting, was the stir spoon. It was plastic and due to that fact caused a problem while boiling the beer. However Northern Brewers were extremely helpful with resolving the issue. I have a new metal spoon on the way!

good kit
I received a deluxe starter kit last July for my birthday. My kit was less expensive, but it didn't come with a kettle. I bought a ten gallon kettle and a wort chiller to go with the kit. It came with a Chinook IPA recipe kit and it turned out to be well liked by all who tried it. I highly recommend getting a wort chiller.

Love this kit
I’m giving this four stars only because my beer from my starter kit (Block Part Amber Ale) didn’t turn out quite right. I’m still trying to figure out what I might have done wrong. I let it in the fermenter for 3 weeks instead of 2. Bottled it and checked every week. So after three weeks in the bottle it’s still pretty flat and has a bit of a funky flavor. Again...this was something I did. So I give this kit and Northern Brewer customer service five stars. They are even sending me a new kit to try and do it right this time. So I love the kit and I really like the opportunity to try this again! I’ll update in a month or so

Great Kit, but Lacking
I will start by saying, great kit for a great price! I was even able to use a 20% off code with free shipping, so GREAT!
I just brewed yesterday, and everything went really well. The instructions are fairly easy to follow, but I think they could be a bit more detailed. I did ask a few questions via email which were answered within 24 hours.
The kit IS lacking, however. 1) PLEASE put the 21" Stainless Steel Spoon BACK into the kit! It is too late for me, but it is a much better option for future buyers. The awful plastic paddle that is now included feels very week and is not good for scooping out your bag of grains. I had to use a regular cooking spoon that sucked but was better than the stupid stirring paddle! 2) PLEASE start including a small amount of sanitizer. The Oxy Wash packet included is a cleanser ONLY. In its own video, NorthernBrewer states that sanitizing is THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP, and then they don't even include a sanitizer! I had to go to a local brew store on brew day to resolve this issue!
Other than that, here are two other experiences: 1) My kit came in a few days later than originally stated. No problem for me, but some people may want to look at timing. 2) I have sent 2 emails with questions, and I have used online chat once... BOTH were at a GREAT level of service and very helpful!
Enjoy your brewing experiences!

I found this kit to be excellent. Came well packaged and on time. Instructions are pretty clear and straight forward. Lid is very hard to get off. A lid lifter tool would be a handy thing. I am considering getting a gamma lid for it.

A Couple more Details
The starter kit had most everything I needed (except thermometer & hydrometer) and was well made. The instructions were adequate but could use a little more detail around adding hops and pouring off the wort to the fermenter. Also, I lost the muslin grain bag so had to use an old white teashirt. The first brew is done with 5 gallons being fermented.

im a newbie and have been reading everything i can on kits. this looks like the one i will go with (have looked at mr beer, brewery best, brooklyn, others). so here are four questions. how much beer does this kit make with initial? what key pieces are missing, eg thermometer, hydrometer (understand bottles)? can i use beer recipe kits from others, eg mr beer or brooklyn brewery? when does sale end?
V U on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This kit is a great starter kit at a great price! It is missing the hydrometer (I got one with a beer thief for like $15 on NB) and thermometer but it has pretty much everything else you will need to make 5 gallon batches of beer. The ingredient kit that comes with it will make 5 gallons of beer and you can use any 5 gallon kit after that. The only other thing you may want to get is a bottle of star-San sanitizer. I find it way easier to use than the powder that comes with the kit, and the kit only comes with enough sanitizer for one batch so if you think you will really be getting into it, I would get more. Have fun!
Can I use the bottling bucket as a secondary fermentor?
K E on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You could, if you put the lid on it. However, this is not recommended because of the extra head space in the bucket. Instead, we recommend using a 5 gal carboy or Big Mouth Bubbler.
Can I do a full boil 5 gallon batch with this kettle?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, you can't boil 5 gallons of wort in a 5 gallon kettle. If you tried it would boil over.

If you follow the instructions that come with this kit, the pot will only ever contain 2.5 gallons of water, and a small volume of malt extract.

You add water to your fermenter at the end to bring the total volume up to 5 gallons.

The only negative consequence I can think of in doing all of that is lower hop utilization, which would mean your beer may taste sweeter than it would if you boiled more water. I would assume Norther Brewer thought that through and it'll taste fine.
I started my fermenting 5 days ago and I got bubbles in my airlock within hours but now I am not getting any bubbles, does that mean that it is done fermenting or is that normal? I thought it was faster than it was supposed to start fermenting. Should I let it ferment for the rest of the two weeks or start bottling earlier? Thanks!
T A on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I agree with the poster saying to leave it be for the full time the recipe calls for. My first and only batch to date bubbled like crazy for a couple of days and then slowed to nothing. I left it for the full time and it turned out great. I am looking forward to my next batch now.
I started fermenting my brew 4 days ago. I have yet see bubbles in my air lock. Now I'm smelling the brew around the lid. I got the lid locked down tight. Is my brew going to make it or do I have a problem?
A D on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure your beer is fine. Bubbling is not the best indicator of fermentation. If you take the lid off and see that there is a crusty ring around the edge of the bucket and/or foam on top of the beer, you know that fermentation is taking place. You can also taste the beer. If it still tastes sweet and sugary it may not have fermented, but if it tastes more like actual beer, all is fine.
I'm actually looking to purchase this for my fiancé. Just wondering if it comes with bottles to store the beer in?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: bottles need to be purchased seperately. Or you can re-use other bottles like I did and just make sure they're nice and clean. Be careful while capping because some of our re-used bottles broke during this process
Hi, I'm considering this kit for my husband as an anniversary gift and would like your recommendation on what type of hydrometer and thermometer to purchase along with it. Thanks in advance for your help!
J S on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think the Triplescale Hydrometer ( SKU 7412 ) is the most helpful one, and a metal thermometer to use during the brewing process ( SKU 7415 ) is also a good item to have on hand. I like this thermometer better than the glass ones, and it's safer to use for this purpose. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Can I brew a small batch with this kit?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: you can brew any amount 5 gallons or less but you will have to adjust the amount of ingredients accordingly
Is the siphon included an auto siphon?
K V on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's the same siphon see here:

Is beer brewing something I do in the kitchen, garage, or ???
J E on Jun 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Personally, I would do it outside using a turkey frier or grill burner as a kitchen stove does not really get hot enough. When you have a rapid boil (as you are supposed to) it will make a fair mess so outside is best, plan on spraying off your patio or deck afterward. It is worth it though so brew on!!
Does this kit come with a hydrometer?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it does not. I would recommend getting a refractometer anyway. Its easier to use and requires a lot less liquid
Any tips for getting the lid off when the fermentation is done? The lid snapped into place, and now I can't remove it no matter how hard I pull.
A shopper on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are tough, I can usually get it with my fingers (although it takes a lot of force) but they do sell a bucket opening tool to make the process easier. I usually just try to lift one edge over and the rest is easier from there. Hope this helps!

Does the 20% off cupon code comes into the box?
Steven M on Feb 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yup each kit you buy comes with a 20% off coupon. Plus they send you different deals and promotions, coupons, etc. if you sign up for the emails. Some are pretty good, others okay.
Would Carbonation tablets be beneficial when brewing the Block Party Amber Ale?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: YES.. first I did the Block Party Ale with the conditioning sugar and then did another batch using the tablets and through my experience, the tablets produced a MUCH better end product. I would say after using both, my preference definitely leans towards the tablets.
Does it come with instructions? As a first time brewer I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing!
D J on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It does come with basic instructions on how to brew beer. And the ingredient kit comes with good instructions too. You just need to do it tho to figure it out as you go and any questions you have can be answered on the NB forum or by Google
Is the kid of the fermenter not supposed to snap on or be tight? Its like it doesn't fit correctly and I feel like air is escaping out the top. I have not seen any bubbling yet unless I apply a lot of pressure to the lid.
E S on Apr 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The lid does fit on but can be hard to snap on. Try starting at one spot and pressing down with your weight. You'll feel it snap on then start working your way around the rest of the lid.
Does it come with a hydrometer? I don't see it listed
T H on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it doesnt
How long does it take to brew 5 gallons from start to drink?
B A on Feb 12, 2016

It really depends on the style of beer, and how each stage goes. First is primary fermentation, which typically takes 2 weeks. Secondary fermentation is optional for most styles, and can go from 2 weeks to many months. You can skip this step with many styles. Finally, bottle conditioning usually takes 2-4 weeks, but less time if the temps are warmer.

Basically, 4 weeks is pretty much as quick of a turnaround as you can expect. Let me know if you have a specific beer kit in mind, and I can offer more exact input!


What should the final gravity be on this recipe?
L U on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It ought to reach about 1.014, or 1.012, somewhere like that. That would make it about 4% ABV. - Mike W , Northern Brewer
What 3 additional pieces are needed?
A K on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Allen

This kit has everything that you need to start brewing extract batches. One thing that may be needed is bottles


or whatever you decide to package your beer in. I also recommend getting a hydrometer to take readings of the original gravity and final gravity to determine the alcohol content of the beer. Not necessary

but its always best to take as many notes and data points throughout a brew as possible so if something goes wrong

you can troubleshoot much more efficiently. If

when you mention needing three additional pieces

you are talking about moving up to doing all-grain batches

then there are a number of things that one would need. The simplest set up for all grain would be: http://www.northernbrewer.com/fermenters-favorites-essential-all-grain-brewing-starter-kit-10-gallon
Whats the abv of this amber, roughly? In percentage please?
Tim K on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Been sometime since my first brew, but I believe it was just over 5... 5.2 or so.
Can I make smaller batches with this kit?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes, batch size depends on the quantity of ingredients you buy. this kit might be a little big for a 1 gal. batch
My kit came with two bottling buckets will the spigot seal good enough to use one as a fermenter?
A shopper on Nov 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You should be fine. I have never had issues with the spigot leaking so I would imagine it'll hold up during the fermentation period. It's worth reaching out to customer service though, they'll most likely send you a new bucket.
I am planing to gift this kit for my friend and I have no idea about Beer making:) Does this kit have everything that is required to brew along with it or should I buy anything extra? If I should buy something else as well to complete the kit please let me know. From the comments below I see that a hydrometer and a thermometer is required additionally. Is there anything else?
A shopper on Oct 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Along with bottles, I would also suggest a sanitizer! The kit only comes with Oxy Wash, and that is only step 1 (of 2) of the cleaning process for equipment and bottles.
We just purchased this kit to make 5 gallon batches. Now, we are trying to determine what additional equipment will be needed to make a 1 gallon batch instead. So far we have the 2 gallon kettle, Little Big Mouth Bubbler and airlock (fermentation), and 2 gallon bucket (bottling) which I have referenced below. Is there any siphoning/tubing, etc. we will need for this smaller set up that we cannot use from the 5 gallon Brew Share Enjoy Starter Kit? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: I went from 5 gallon to 1 gallon brewing some time ago. Since then I have moved to 3 gallon brewing. My point is I'm working off of memory. From memory I think the only additional equipment I needed was the fermenting bucket. I also bought a 1 gallon carboy that needed a new rubber stopper but the airlocks from the 5 gallon still worked fine. I used the same hoses/tubing. As far as I can remember all I needed additionally was the 1) bucket. 2)carboy 3) rubber stopper for the carboy
Is this kit an extract kit or brew in bag or both?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Extract kit with specialty grains(steeped before boil).
I am purchasing this as a gift and want them to have everything to start off with. Is there any additional items needed?

Also are you able to get different recipes like an ipa rather than an amber ale?
H A on Sep 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is a very good starter package to get going brewing. A couple of good add-ons might be a Hydrometer for measuring fermentation progress, or a Wort Chiller to cool the boiled beer quickly. But these are not essential to getting started, most us us began without those items. They are nice to have, though, and we would suggest them for any brewer. This particular kit package is only sold with the Block Party Amber Ale kit, it is not offered with any other recipe kit choices. - Mike W, Northern Brewer
I just ordered this kit. I know it comes with a fermenting bucket, and a bottling bucket. Still a bit of a newbie.

Do you ferment and then switch to the bottling bucket? Or ferment in the bottling bucket? Thanks!
D E on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: After fermentation is complete, you'll transfer the beer into the bottling bucket. From there, you'll fill the bottles through the spigot and bottle filler. This helps to clarify the beer, and the beer is only in the bottling bucket for about half an hour or so.
Is this extract kit liquid extract or DME or can I choose on checkout? If liquid, how many ounces?
T B on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The beer recipe kit in this package has a 6-lb jug of liquid malt extract in it. There is no option to change the beer kit ingredients in the kit package. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
I've been comparing this brew share to the deluxe and big mouth bubbler kits and want to know if there is a big difference between fermenting in a bucket as compared to glass carboy or bubbler? And could this equipment be used if in the future I want to move to all grain?
R O on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Buckets are work great for primary fermentation as they are cheap. However, they are oxygen permeable so using a carboy that does not let oxygen through is better if you do two stage fermentations.

All of the equipment included can be used when brewing all grain.
