Upgrade to All-Grain brewing without the need for additional propane burners and kettles. The new and improved essential all-grain brewing system is the most affordable introduction to all grain brewing, loaded with brewing power at an unbelievable price.

The insulated coolers maintain stable temperatures for the duration of your rest schedule. When you're ready to sparge, do so knowing that your Hot Liquor Tank is ready to go.

The strongest, most effective false bottom on the planet— the Titan™ Universal False Bottom makes better beer, no matter how you brew it. This stainless-steel false bottom delivers high efficiency, clarity and a solid grain bed. The Titan™ pickup tube gets closer to the floor of your mash tun than any other false bottom. You'll be able to transfer more of your wort into the boil kettle, leaving less than ¼" of wort behind.

New cooler design stores easily and stays out of the way with recessed, foldable handles and a narrower body for a smaller footprint in your brew cave.

Includes everything you need to mash and sparge your first All Grain batch, right out of the box.

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

Great buy!
Made the transition to all-grain simpler than I could ever imagine!

Great equipment
What a great way to begin my all-grain experience with this kit. It came with all the necessities to get a brew started and watching the videos helped boost my confidence in knowing that I wouldn't screw up. It has all the hardware needed for brewing right away. My only regret is that I didn't spend the extra few bucks and get the 10-gallon set so I could brew those bigger Belgian styles with ease.

Why did I wait!?
Love it! I should have gone all grain and larger batches sooner! More beer!!!!!!! Hahahahahahahaha!

Works great, all grain goodness!
This product made my first attempt at all grain very easy. Great product I'm very happy.

Great kit!
Everything you need to make your first all grain batch. Really easy to assemble and start brewing. My wife bought this for me for Father's Day...might be the best present she's gotten me!

I did not like the flavor of liquid malt extract brewing kits. So I decided to go all-grain brewing. I purchased the Fermenter's Favorites Essential All-Grain Brewing Starter Kit from Northern Brewer to start my all-grain brewing. I already had all the equipment for brewing LME beers and needed the mash/lauter-tun, false bottom screen and sparge tanks for all grain brewing. The kit had everything I needed. It all went together easily and I brewed up my first single infusion pale ale all grain kit from Northern Brewer. I highly recomend the Fermenter's Favorites Essential All-Grain Brewing Kit - 7 gallon for persons starting all grain brewing.

would this system work if I brew 1 and 2.5 gallon all grain batches or would the grain bed be too thin to work as it is meant too?
G E on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This system could work for those batches. The biggest area for concern would be the coolers ability to hold mash temperature with a small mash like that since there would be a large amount of head space in the cooler.
How many pounds of grain can a 7 gallon system handle? Thanks.
S B on Oct 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the density of your grist.

Let's say we use just barley which has a bulk density of 620kg/m^3, the 7 gallon mash tun has a volume of 0.0265m^3. Multiply the two and you get 16.43kg, or 36.22 lbs.

But again, this is completely dependent on your grain composition, not to mention the fact that you'll have water in the tun as well.
Can you inform the dimensions and weight o the package? I am travelling by air and need to know It's not exceeding 50 lbs...
X G on Mar 17, 2016

Thanks for you question! The dimensions of the box are 22.25L x 16.25W x 36.5 H, with a total weight of 57lbs.

The video for this system refers to the "included bard tubing and clamps." My kit did not have these pieces. When I called to inquire I was told to just cut off a piece of the tubing the clear vinyl tubing that was in the kit and that I did not need to use the clamps. Just wanted to pass this along, you might want to update the video.
David C on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've gone with or without in the past. If there is any risk of the tubes moving, such as opening lids or moving kettles you may not want to risk it and choose to clamp. However, keep in mind your talking about your hard earned beer and you may not want to risk a single drop!
When the heated sparge water goes into the hot liquor tank, how much heat does the cooler soak up before it stabilizes?
P A on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Palyn,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! That heat transfer depends on the temperature that the cooler is at. If you warm up the cooler by adding hot water to it and letting it sit prior to starting your sparge, you should only have a 2-5 degree drop in temperature. This is explained in full detail in "How to Brew" http://howtobrew.com/ I hope that this helps, let me know if you have any further questions!
If I plan to brew 5 gallon batches, is their a disadvantage to using the 10 gallon kit in case I want to increase to 10 gallon batch sizes later?
T L on Dec 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I plan to give this as a gift to my son who brews small batches for his personal use. So I really don't know.
I only brew 5 gallon batches. Mostly IPAs. I've done about 25 extract kits and would like to start all grain brewing. Would this be big enough for 5 gallon batches or should I go with the 10 gallon kit. Thanks guys!
T R on Dec 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it would be big enough for 5 gallon batches with a maximum of about 18 lbs of grain.
Can you use this for non all grain kits as well? I'm looking for something i can use for everything.
R G on Nov 16, 2015

thanks for contacting us! You would still need a brewing starter kit that contains fermentors and transfer and bottling equipment. With one of those basic starter kits you can make "extract" beers with just a boil kettle. You need all that same equipment as well to make "all grain" batches of beer as well. But with "all grain" you process crushed malted grains in a mash to create the sugar solution. In extract beers you just add a jug of syrup to the boil kettle. This all grain starter kit gives you the 'mash tun' and 'hot liquor tank" that you before the boil kettle to make the beer all grain.

So if you have not brewed before I would get a beer making starter kit like our deluxe or essential starter kit. You would need to add on items like this to your brewery to make beer the all grain way and the only thing you need to ensure is that the boiling kettle you use is 8 gallon or larger. While a 5 gallon kettle is all that is needed for extract brews. I hope this helps explain! Cheers! James J.
What are the the differences in dimensions between the 7 and 10 gallon systems (height, and diameter). I am thinking about storage and how to utilize these in my kitchen and this information would be extremely helpful.
A N on Sep 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 7 gallon is roughly 14 x 14 x 19" and the 10 gallon is 16.

x 16.

x 22.4"
Is this big enough to brew 7.5 to 9% abv beers or is it better off to get the 10 gallon for doing bigger beers?
W A on Aug 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Better to get the 10 Gallon to have the capacity for the grains. You won't regret going bigger!
What are the dimensions of the lid? I managed to misplace a lid out of the back of my truck courtesy of poor planning coupled with poor weather.
