Good Results
I'm a newbee. The kit comes with twice as much yeast as you need. The instructions say to pitch half the yeast and discard the unused portion. Fine, but I don't have a scale and did want to risk over handling the yeast and infection by measuring all of it out with a teaspoon and dividing by two. So I eyeballed it. The batch had a strong primary fermentation and a fairly quiet secondary. Bottled using one fizz drop per bottle. After two and then three weeks in the bottle there still wasn't much carbonation. Aside from that, the color and clarity was really nice. Tasted great. Good alcohol content. Just needed more carbonation. Will try it again.

I've been fermenting this beer for about 6 days in the Little Big Mouth Bubbler and I'm still not noticing a foam head. Any idea what's up?

BEST ANSWER: I had a similar issue that I tracked down to not making a complete seal due to a small seed on the top of the glass ridge. Sanitize a paper towel and wipe the gasket on the underside of the lid and the top glass rim. That did the trick for me.
All these 1 gal kits that steep grains all say "10mins while heating up the water". Is there a MAX temp not to exceed while doing this step? Is there a target temp where this 10 min steep would be best at? Is due to not getting complicated for first time brewers?
J U on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Justin,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! Those grains should not be steeped above 170F. Temperatures above this threshold can extract tannins from the grain husk and add an astringent flavor to your beer. The optimal temperature for steeping the grains would be 145-165F based on typical mashing temperatures. I hope that this helps clarify things, have a wonderful day!
How much yeast is added to this 1 gallon batch?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: About half of the supplied packet. Maybe a little more. I don't measure, just add by eye.
What are the steeping grains that come in the kit, and in what amount?
P H on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That would be Northern Brewers proprietary blend.
Including the cellophane packaging it weighs just under
80 grams.
So I just had my first bottle this past Friday, and it had what I could best describe as a "spice" taste to it. Cannot make out anything specific, but most reviews seem to indicate there should a citrus note, which I did not pick up.had 2 weeks in primary and a bit over a week in secondary, then 2 weeks in the bottle. Drank the day after it went in the fridge. Anyone else come across this, does it sound like I did something wrong?
Sean H on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Still a little early to judge. Give the bottles a little more time and the beer will keep getting better and better. I personally get no citrus, but instead pine and lemon. Cheers!
What should the FG reading be for the one gallon kit
Marwin L on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Your FG ought to be close to 1.013-1.017, right in this range. The lower the better. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
What's the ABV
Marwin L on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The exact ABV will vary based on the conditions of your boil and fermentation. However, you can expect 6-7%
How many ounces of grain are in the kit?
A N on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm unable to measure in ounces. But the grains come in a ziplock bag. A handful if grains. Almost same size as the pumpkin ale kit.
Can you use a 5 gallon fermenter for a 1 gallon batch?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, that would be far too much headspace. I believe you want 130% the volume of your beer for a primary fermentor. I.E. a 1 gallon batch the perfect fermentor volume would be 1.3 gallon.
How long should this ferment for? It states only 2 weeks, but should I add a second stage, if so, for how long. Also instructions state to use all the yeast, but most here use only half. Why.
A shopper on Mar 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi there- Secondary isn't required but if you want to do a secondary, I would give it a week to 10 days once transferred. You will want to use the entire yeast packet. We used to package the yeast differently but we now send a premeasured amount. Cheers!
How much yeast is added to this 1 gallon batch?
Troy D on Jan 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used half of the yeast packet that came with the kit
Why is there no dry hopping in the extract kit but the grain kit says to add 0.4oz of pellets to dry hop?
Matthew M on Sep 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: From in house testing, we have found that is what works best for the kits to reach the intended out come.
I do not see any mention of yeast or priming sugar options. Do I need to add that to my order individually?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. With the small batch recipe kits, the yeast and the priming sugar or rather the fizz drops are included in the kit and do not need to be purchased separately. Cheers! -Deanna, staff
Can I double this recipe and follow same steps & timing? I didn't see 2 gallon brew kits..
Ed W on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. If you have a larger fermenter, etc, you can surely do a double batch. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
What's the Final Gravity of the 1 gallon batch
Marwin L on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Your FG ought to be close to 1.013-1.017, right in this range. The lower the better. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Received my Dead Ringer IPA today ... Not brewing until Sunday... Should I freeze the hops until then and if so do I thaw them before the boil
Marwin L on Mar 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Refrigerating them until then will be fine.
