Product Details
This kit will take your brewing to the next level. It comes with the premier Dark Star® 2.0 propane burner and an 8 Gallon Tall Boy®.

Brew like the big boys and ditch the dilution! Full volume boils mean you’ll be getting better hop utilization, less wort darkening, and less chance of scorching your precious wort which ultimately means better beer in the glass.

Raise your Game Brew Kettle
This is a great product for the starter brewer. I purchased it because I did not have adequate heat from my current stove and wanted it for larger brew possibilities. It heated the water quickly and was easy to use.

Wish I'd have waited.
For what it is it's great. I was to temp in 7 minutes and the 8 gallon pot is sturdy. I do wish I had waited for the package that just came out that includes the wort chiller.

Lots of heating capacity
Burner, very stable base, easy to light and control flame. Brought wart to rapid boil quickly. Propane tank hose could be a few feet longer to get the tank out of the way. Brewing attracts spectators.

Tall boy kettle has good quality and will suit many uses. Perfect for outdoor brewing.

Note to purchasers, kettle is too tall to use on stove top if you have a standard hood or microwave. Very deep. Get a long stainless spoon for 2-1/2gallon brew batches. Kettle mounted thermometer would be nice. I'm going to add one to mine.

Great product. Fantastic way to brew your own beer.

Okay for starters
The burner works fine and the kettle is top notch. However, after brewing a few batches you soon discover that taking a temp can be challenging and pouring your batch into a fermenter is difficult, requiring two people. So, for a new brewer I would recommend a kettle with a valve and thermometer. That would make life much easier and the hobby more enjoyable.

When will this combo be available with a kettle that has a drain valve?
scott s on Jan 20, 2017
How difficult would it be to drill a hole for a drain valve on this Tall Boy?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Get a good step drill and it's pretty easy. Drilled a hole for a thermometer and drain on mine.
This has been out of stock for a while does NB plan to offer this combo again in the future? If so any estimate on availability and what about a 10 gallon version?
C B on Jan 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the request on a 10 gallon option, I'll pass that along. The 8 gallon kettle is out of stock until probably April! Sorry about that, it should be available once we receive more kettles. Let me know if we can help further!
Is there an equivalent deal for the 10 gallon pot and burner?
E N on Dec 8, 2015

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may pose, but the package discount is only available on the 8 gallon kettle.
What is the diameter?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: DIA=12.5" Depth=15" after adjusting flame mix on burner this is EASILY one the best investments I've made a hobby brewer. 5stars.
Do you recommend this for biab?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This would work awesome for a BIAB. If you want to do full size 5 gallon BIAB you may look into a 10 Gallon kettle.
Can you upgrade to a 10 gallon pot?
Ryan H on Dec 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Ryan,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! We cannot upgrade to the 10 gallon pot. To run the 10 gallon and darkstar, they would need to be purchased separately. Sorry about that!
Can this product be upgraded to a 10 gal pot so you can have enough volume for BIAB?
Gregory Wyant on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be upgraded from a 5, to a 8 or a 10 gal while you are making your purchase. 8 gal brew kettles are good for 3 gal batches if you are going to BIAB. I bought an 8 gal when I should've gotten a 10 or larger! Didn't know about BIAB being new to brewing, so 5 gallon BIAB batches are out of the question until I buy a larger than 8 gal kettle. Do your research if you are a beginner, and purchase for the future!!
Any idea's when they will be back in stock?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for contacting Northern Brewer. I understand you are eagerly awaiting the Raise your Game II Kettle and Burner kit. At this time the burner is out of stock, but we should be getting more in this week. We thank you for your patience. Cheers! -Deanna, staff
Any idea when this'll be in stock again??
C T on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We are out of both items, sorry. I believe both should be back available by the end of April. Cheers! James J.
Since the 8 gallon is out of stock any chance you could do this same combo in the 10 gallon.
T S on Apr 5, 2016

Thanks for contacting us. I'm sorry to say that we are currently out of the burner as well, so we are unable to do any bundles containing the Dark Star 2.0. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Should the burner move a lot ? While installing gas line I noticed the burner has a lot of "wiggle" up and down and side to side. Nut holding burner is tight. Is this typical?
S J on Oct 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The base is flexible and is designed to work on uneven ground. Once you have a kettle with liquid on the burner

the weight presses the flexible base towards the ground and is will seem much more sturdy. The base is still strong enough to support over 200 lbs.
