Northern Brewer customer feedback has made this Brewery in a Box what it is today - the staple of every brew cave from essential to exploratory.
We've built this all-inclusive home brew kit to be fun and foolproof with some of the most trusted instruction in homebrewing. Rest assured that no matter what your method of learning, your first homebrew is a guaranteed success.
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.

The additional equipment and extra steps taken with the Deluxe Starter Kit reward the brewer with clearer, clean-tasting beer, as well as the ability to brew a wider range of styles as your confidence grows and sudsy repertoire expands!
HERE'S THE FUN PART! Every starter kit comes complete with your choice of recipe kits. Just pick one of the three classic Northern Brewer recipes below and you'll have all the ingredients you need to take your new gear out for a test drive.
Caribou Slobber Brown Ale Like your brews tall, dark and drinkable? Then try Caribou Slobber Brown Ale. Perfect for fans of substantial craft beer, this ale is full-bodied, smooth, and deliciously dark without a hint of bitterness. Guaranteed to become your new favorite session beer.
Irish Red Ale If you're looking for a perfectly balanced, crowd-pleasing pint, you can't go wrong with our Irish Red Ale. There's a reason this kit is our best seller. Actually, three reasons: great, medium-bodied taste, rich coppery color and enticingly low aging requirements.
Chinook IPA This American IPA recipe kit has a relatively modest gravity and an immodest hop character derived entirely from a single hop variety: Chinook.
Required but not included: a 4 to 5-gallon kettle and roughly 50 empty 12oz beer bottles that accept pry-off caps. See our Raise Your Game Fresh Start Upgrade Kit.
Note: Testing the specific gravity of your batch with a hydrometer is the best way to keep tabs on fermentation and for us to help troubleshoot by phone or email. We highly recommend adding our Mad Brewer Upgrade Kit or Brewery Essentials Gravity Testing Kit.
