Default Northern Brewer

Anybody have any dealings/history with Northern Brewer? I was just curious. I randomly got a catalog in the mail from them. Are they new? Good customer service? They seem a little pricey but not terrible.

Yes. No, not new. Yes, very good customer service. Prices are pretty reasonable overall.

They are an excellent vendor. Great catalog. I've used them several times. And their adverts on the Jamil shows are friggin funny.

Customer service is great. I bought a blow off tube assembly once (bung and hose). I didnt think the hose fit well, they gave me more in a credit than the thing cost.

Yeah, a fantastic retailer - and I currently split my business between Northern Brewer and Brewmaster's Warehouse for 90% of my supplies and equipment.

Awesome, thanks. I placed an order and it's already shipped. Can't complain about that! I am curious how they got my address for the catalog. Oh well. It is fun to peruse the 1500 dollar fermenators.

I would like to know where you get your stuff if you think NB is a little pricey. Unfortunately they DO NOT ship to Canada, as I have found so many things they have that I want. Fortunatly Minneapolis is in my plans for a trip in the near future (go there every year). If I find stuff that I really like, I will have to talk nice to the family down there to send stuff up to me.

I usually go to my LHBS. It seems Northern Brewer's prices are hit or miss. For example, their Belgian Candi Sugar is 150% MORE than my LHBS, and their grains are about $1 to $2 per pound more than my LHBS. However, their yeasts are priced nice. Their draft towers are an outstanding value too.

I did just run across the thread on Brewmaster's Warehouse. I'll probably use them as much as possible from now on (when my LHBS is out).
