• Bottling bucket w/spigot assembly
• Bottle filler
• 5 US gallon (19 litre) stainless brew kettle

In creating the Sweet Porter recipe kit, Northern Brewer's brewmasters worked with Goose Island's R&D brewer Tim Faith to recreate their special seasonal beer 'A Real Nice Surprise', boasting notes of milk chocolate, nutmeg and a big, toasty malt backbone. It also conveys the complex flavors of barrel aging that have become a Goose Island trademark... without the need for barrel ageing.

A thermometer is an indispensable tool when brewing. If you don't already have one at home, you can add a glass or digital thermometer to your order.

Brewery Info

Great breweries start with a clear vision. Founder John Hall’s was to bring the best of European beer styles to Chicago. Since its modest beginnings in a brewpub in 1988, Goose Island went on to make some of America’s greatest beer, including Goose IPA that won medals not just once, but six times at the Great American Beer Festival.

Great set of equipment and beer
Review by
Great starting set of equipment. No thermometer or hydrometer but those can be picked up later and are not necessary for this brew. Brews and tastes great.
