Pros

This kit contains everything needed to brew 1 gallon of beer, except the bottles. Received the glass little big mouth bubbler and contents to make the ipa.

Easy to follow instructions and a dvds guide. The process is pretty forgiving as well. The instructions are well detailed and easy to follow. We used both the provided written instructions as well as their youtube video to work through the steps.

The price is awesome for anyone who is unsure whether they want to try their hand at brewing or not. Not new to home brewing but downsizing since time away from hobby and moving into an apartment low on space. This is a purchase you will not regret!



Cons

The kit includes a pack of fizz drops which are not mentioned anywhere in the instructions. In the description it says neglects to inform you that it takes a month to brew.

Just tighten spigot little bit and broken the jar instantly and lost all the beer. Multiple parts inside came opened and damaged. Over half of the small batch grain blend had spilled out.

Quality


Very detailed instructions and you cannot go wrong with the the process.


It tasted like a lot of ipa brands on the market but with the difference being you make it yourself.


I don't know what the problem was with the siphon, i just couldn't get it to work properly.


Now for the product:the instructions were clear and easy to follow.


I am very pleased with the courteous tone, the quick response, and the fact that this company went above and beyond what i was hoping for.

Shipping


I went with amazon because of the speed of shipping over northern brewing.

Packaging/appearance


A week and a half later i tried one of the beers and it tasted great with a good head on the beer.


I have just a couple of days left in the bottle before i transfer it into the fridge.


Mostly the siphon and the bottle filler.

Competitiveness


Got this for my son he was happy to start makeing beer


He even says it’s better than some beers he has had at other breweries.

    Good customer service—my unit arrived broken and they got back to me within a few hours when i asked for a replacement.

    First, the customer support of northern brewer is top notch.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I have to agree with the other reviewers that the siphon sucks, but in the bad sort of way, not the literal way.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    He said nothing about it being difficult to use or understand the directions.

    The phone support is excellent.
