Northern Brewer All Grain Cooler System
We’ve taken our All-Grain Cooler System and added upgrades to provide the best possible brewing experience. The completely redesigned mash/lauter tun features thick insulation, a large 12+ gallon capacity and the first ever integrated thermometer. The large capacity will easily handle any 5 gallon brew you can throw its way, from session beers to Imperials, and it's even large enough to accommodate 10 gallon batches up to a gravity of 1.065.
Featuring all stainless steel fittings including our proprietary bulkhead and Titan False Bottom, this system is designed to last. Steel reinforced and silicone gasketed mounting holes ensure a tight, leak-free hardware fit, and offer easy installation with top of the line brewing performance. Everything you need to mash, sparge and collect wort is included so no additional purchases are necessary. Just provide your boil kettle for a premium, robust brewing system.
The unique geometry of the mash/lauter tun and hot liquor tank makes storing your gear between batches even more convenient. Simply remove the valves and thermometer, and the hot liquor tank will nest perfectly inside the mash tun for the smallest possible footprint for storage.
Includes everything you need to mash and sparge your first All-Grain batch, right out of the box.

NOTE: A full boil is required for All-Grain brewing, so a boil kettle with an 8 to 10 gallon capacity is highly recommended.

With 8lb grain the thermometer was barely submerged.
I got it for my husband for Christmas. We are setting things up now. We haven’t used it yet but others told us it’s the best system. Can’t wait to make out me first beer!
Nice compact kit that holds temps nicely. Looking forward to putting it through it's paces during some cold New England winter days. Wish that the MLT screen could remain in place w/o disassembly to fit the HLT inside, but that's a minor detail. Love that I can store both in the same footprint.
There is no video support for the specific assembly of The screen. This has caused issues for me with grain getting under the screen and clogging my mash tun effluent for both of the all grain brews I have done. An email seeking help has gone unanswered. On a positive note, the rest of the system is well constructed and easy to assemble / disassemble.
The mash tun and hot liquor tank both have a weird chemical smell that I haven’t been able to get rid of. So far it hasn’t affected any of my brews, but the smell doesn’t mix well with the malt scent.
