I ordered a starter kit from them and when it arrived my auto siphon was cracked. I called and had a replacement within a few days. Anyone looking to get into brewing should check them out. Quality customer service is so hard to find anymore.

Thanks Northern Brewer

I like the emphasis on fresh malt extract and have made better beers using there LME they have very good packaging also, I didnt care for midwests packaging, im surprised my pellot hops didnt have holes in them as they were loose being thrown around.

I love Northern Brewer. Currently have their bourbon barrel porter in primary. Can't wait to drink that thing.

Their Brewing TV, blog, and resources page are great.

I bought a few things from them and everything was well packaged. The Star San and PBW were each in the own heavy, plastic bag that was tied up. I try to buy local, but I would not hesitate to recommend Northern Brewer.

NB is one of my top 3 places I order from. AHS and Williams are great too.

NB gets the vast majority of my money... along with kegconnection for anything legging related. They're cheaper than my local and ingredients are always fresh, whereas my lhbs has the same junk on the shelves for months, and they're more expensive. Id support local if it was even remotely close in quality, but they can't compete.

Being on the east coast, I generally have to wait 4-5 days for them to get here, but Im pretty good at planning ahead, so no biggie.

Let me know how that bourbon porter comes out...cuz it sounds very interesting!!
I just started but am really pleased with Northern Brewer (just bottled American amber ale and just ordered an IPA) and my eye is on that bourbon barrel porter for next time

Cheers
