Premium Craft Brewery in a Box - Beer Making Starter Kit

Hindsight is 20/20

There are a few things I would have done very differently now that I've been brewing for a while. Unless storage space is a factor, you may quickly outgrow your 8 gallon megapot. That being said, this was a phenomenal (and relatively inexpensive) way to get into homebrewing.
I have a few recommendations for people looking at purchasing this kit:
Buy a lid - the bottling bucket can be used as another fermenter.
Invest in a thermometer - the kit comes with one, but having it integrated into the pot is much more convenient when/if you go all grain.
Consider kegging - much more convenient than bottling, and forced carbonation means no more junk in your bottles if you decide to package
Get more cleaner before you need it - the included cleaner worked great, but you will need more. I like pbw and star san.
Get extra tubing - lifting your boiling lava hot 8 gallon pot and carrying it to the sink is just not smart. Ensure you can reach from stove to sink with your wort chiller.
Be aware of fermentation requirements - some yeasts and styles need a specific range of temperatures that may be outside of your ability without temperature control. A spare fridge or massively expensive fermenter can fix this, or you could try kveik strains.

TL;DR excellent kit, everything you need but bottles or kegs. If you think you want to go all-grain, you totally still can, but this pot may struggle with some 5 gallon recipes. That said, you could brew half, then combine the other half later.

First Beer cane out great

The website is easy to use, order as well order confirmation emails are sent out ASAP. Once the package is shipped your reminder emails are sent as well.

Northern Brewer has several social media outlets that you can view the use of any or all items that you purchase. This makes Brewing the first patch relatively easy.

First time brewer

I ordered the premium craft brewery in a box with the Caribou Slobber extract kit. The kit was professionally packaged and everything needed was there. The only additional thing purchased was some food grade heat resistant tubing from a local homebrew supplier to have extra for transferring from the boil kettle to fermentor and from fermentor to bottling bucket. Already cracked open my first bottle this past week.

Great kit

I only gave it 4 stars because my brand new keg has a faulty air release valve, may change it to a 5. Everything seemed to turn out great on the first brew we will wait and see come Tuesday! Only downside is no free shipping to Canada
