DESIGNED BY BREWMASTERS FOR THE BEST BREWING EXPERIENCE
SERVING THE HOMEBREWER COMMUNITY SINCE 1993
Talking about brewing is almost as fun as brewing; having a beer while talking about brewing gives it a run for its money. We believe this conversation is important, ongoing, dynamic, and bridges the gaps of age, gender, politics, etc.
We bring homebrew to the masses (classes, demonstrations, competitions, beer festivals, and advertising outside hobby publications), Northern Brewer has been in the thick of it since 1993.
THE PERFECT STARTER KIT FOR CRAFT BEER ENTHUSIASTS
We've built this all-inclusive 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 is, your first homebrew is sure to be a success.
WATCH. LEARN. ENJOY.
Our Brewmasters are very passionate about brewing and want you to have an amazing brewing experience. Watch our detailed step by step brewmaster videos so you too can brew your best.
Someday we want homebrewing to be as common a household craft in America as vegetable gardening, and we know that our hobby/craft/shared passion/obsession won’t get there through complacency

The kit came with everything basic needed to start brewing although I wish it would have came with a hydrometer/cylinder/beer thief, thermometer, and maybe some adhesive fermenter thermometers. Overall, great product and I could definitely see myself buying a secondary carboy and a few more recipes.
Note: The directions are pretty straight forward although I believe the video they have on YouTube is definitely easier to follow.
Before purchasing this kit, I also looked into buying all the equipment individually, but this is way more economical. This kit, which includes a recipe kit and all the equipment you need, is $100. Buying just the recipe kit by itself is about $40. The cheapest equivalent food grade bucket and bottling bucket around $25 each, so just with those items, you're at just about the price of the entire kit. Then factor in that a 5 gallon kettle is at least $30, a bottle capper is $20, an auto siphon another $20, and the little things like a bottle brush and a large spoon and such, and there's no way you'll ever come out ahead by trying to buy everything individually.
Initially I was looking at getting their deluxe kit, but there's really no point. The main difference is that the deluxe kit comes with a couple of 5 gallon glass carboys, while this kit comes with food grade plastic buckets. The plastic buckets are perfectly fine, and you'll never know the difference when you're drinking your beer. Also, oddly enough, the deluxe kit does not come with the 5 gallon kettle that this kit comes with.
The only thing you'll need to buy that isn't included in the kit are bottles. However you can reuse any non twist off bottles you have around the house. This kit yielded 43 bottles worth of beer for me.
Brewing instructions were simple and easy to follow. They also have a good video on YouTube that walks you through the process. I let it ferment for 2 weeks, then bottled it. I tried one 10 days after bottling, and it had plenty of carbonation. The beer I can most closely compare this to would be a Leffe Blonde.
Overall an excellent buy, and I'm currently working on my second brew.

One frustrating thing though and I noticed this in other review is that I got 2 bottling buckets both with holes and only 1 spigot when I should have got 1 fermenting bucket with no hole & 1 bottling bucket...😡 easily sorted I just went and bought extra spigot but they should put correct equipment that is specified in description, could be confusing for newbies.
The brewing kettle is a big plus in this kit.
Overall good kit and just started brewing the beer that came with it so looking forward to finished product
Also check Norhern Brewer you tube channel, really good video to go with this kit 😊
I will suggest getting a thermometer for checking the “cooking temperature and a hydrometer to calculate the ABV based on gravity change. If you took an original gravity reading (or had estimated OG), and also took a final gravity (FG) reading prior to adding priming sugar at bottling you can find out your batch's alcohol by volume ABV. ABV at the beginning and the end (which I completely missed).
The over all taste is malty Amber Ale which tasted ok, I’m more of a citrusy refreshing beer fun, but this kit is perfect start for your home brewing experience.
Few things to consider: buy a hydrometer to make sure you know when the fermentation is finished. Mine wasn't finished after 14 days, the time suggested by the instructions.
Buy a few termometers to check the temperature of the wort in a kettle or in a fermenter.
Remember to aerate the wort at least slightly and rehydrate the yeast included - it helps them to start off the fermentation much more smoothly.
Remember this is 5 US GALLONS bucket, which is approx.19L. UK kits often are designed for 23L, so bear in mind that sometimes you may have to reduce the volume slightly or deal with an ovewhelming amount of foam flowing from the airlock. When I had this situation, I replaced an airlock with a hose pipe included and put the other end of it in a sterilised flask of water.
Having that in mind, this is still a very comprehensive kit, I doubt if any of those available have absolutely everything included for a reasonable price such as £65.
Anyway long story short, I would recommend to even my stupidest friends.
