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 and smooth, 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.
American Wheat - Like their German cousins, American wheat beers feature large proportions of malted wheat in the grain bill and are naturally a bit cloudy in appearance. Unlike German Hefe Weizen, though, American wheat beers have a bit more hop character and are fermented with a milder-tasting yeast, resulting in a more clean, neutral finish. With a spicy noble hop aroma and tart finish, it's a spritzy, refreshing crowd-pleaser.
Off the Topper Imperial IPA - A hurricane of hops explodes with flavors of fruity pineapple and dank piney-peach. Surprisingly drinkable for the excessive lupulin, this is an exciting starter recipe not for the faint of heart. Hazy and aromatic, bitter grapefruit and tropical nectarine crash into notes of orange and zesty citrus for a profile bursting with resinous hop character.
The Plinian Legacy Double IPA- A true west-coast style Double IPA, this recipe boasts a hefty, straightforward malt bill to support a relentless barrage of hops. Waves of floral, citrus and pine crash into candied citrus and resinous, earthy flavors. A resoundingly fresh IPA flavor profile highlights each unique characteristic, featuring notes of juicy orange peel, puckering lemon and the refreshing, tropical burst of pineapple to match a bittering finish.
Smashing Pumpkin Ale- This spiced Amber Ale is infused with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. The spices mingle with sweet, toasty malt to frame an intensely flavorful brew. And just like it's big brother, you can add real pumpkin to this recipe for a truly smashing, pumpkin ale - just add an extra pound of 6-row and a large straining bag to your order. It's outside the ordinary, delicious, and most of all fun.

3 months agoGood choiceGood bargain for everything a beginner brewer would need to get started. I think I made the right choice by purchasing this kit.February 17, 2019Purchased
5 months agoLove the kit. When making it we thought it would be helpful to have a 1 gallon brew supplies reorder information in the box. Because half way through we were already thinking about th next batch and a brochure with options would be helpful.January 4, 2019Purchased
6 months agoComplete and easy for beginners to followGave this to my significant other on Christmas, so we have not yet bottled our first batch. But as complete beginners to beer, this was really easy. The step-by-step instructions were very clear and it really did include everything we needed, aside from a 2 gallon stock pot and the bottles. Had a bit of trouble with the siphon at first, but Northern Brewer's help videos showed us what we were doing wrong and from there, we had no problems. Cannot recommended this kit enough for anyone looking to get their feet wet with brewing.January 2, 2019Purchased

7 months agoFirst time beer brewerBox Contents:
Everything was nicely packed, and the inventory was spot on. The only thing wrong was that the air-lock was cracked. It seams to be working fine though, so not much of a problem.
The paper instructions were a little confusing at first. The laminated instructions was a generic document, so reading it was not needed. I did watch the video first, just to see how things were done.
This was a nightmare. I did not read the instructions, I just started pumping the wort into the 1-gallon jug when I was at that point. The part that goes into the 1-gallon jug has a one-way valve at the bottom, that needs to be pressed, for things to flow. I had to hold that down and try to keep the other end out of the sludge and pump at the same time. Easier said than done.
All in all, I had fun brewing this. I am now waiting for the fermentation period to end, so I can bottle, wait another 1-2 weeks, chill and drink.August 16, 2018Purchased

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 4 answershow long does a batch take?BEST ANSWER: From brewing too drinking, about a month. On brew day it took me about an hour and some change to get the wort made when you take cleaning and sanitizing into account, then it had to chill (ice bath for about an hour) and be put into the carboy (which takes no time really). So plan to spend a couple hours keeping an eye on your batch on brew day, an hour or so on bottling day if you're by yourself using the bottle filler. That was my experience at least. But two weeks in the carboy, two weeks in bottles before you can drink your beer.
