- Product Details
One of the few styles that American brewers can legitimately call their own. This classic beer brings together brisk hop flavor and a coppery golden color to make a refreshing pint that is still flavorful enough to enjoy year-round. Our American Amber features a firm malty base supporting assertive American hops, a reddish-amber hue and a lingering off-white head of foam. Not quite a pale ale and not quite a brown, this well-balanced beer has a smooth and versatile flavor that you'll want to come back to again and again. Try pairing this ale with anything from pizza to seafood.

I think it's awesome. Very smooth. A little bitter on the finish, but pleasant. Would definitely brew again!June 25, 2016Awesome!!!If I had to pick a beer it is similar to I would say it is really close to a Sierra Nevada pale ale. This was my second brew and I will be doing this again in the near future!October 1, 2015Absolutely deliciousTasted close to the brew share enjoy and is really smooth.

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 7 answersWhat is the approximate final ABV supposed to be for this kit?BEST ANSWER: These are acceptable ranges for the American Amber Ale:
Original Gravity: 1.045 - 1.060
Final Gravity: 1.010 - 1.015
%ABV: 4.5-6.2Do the ingredients in the kit expire?BEST ANSWER: Recipes are best made within 6 months. Store yeast in the fridge, liquid yeast should be used within 6 months of manufactured date(fresher is better and you maybe have 3 months gauranteed). Specialty grains should be used within 6 months for best results. Hop and extracts are best used within a year. Cheers.Will adding a lb of honey to this brew increase abv without ruining flavor?BEST ANSWER: If you're just looking to up the ABV I'd use corn sugar. The honey will most likely show a hint of flavor even after full fermentation.Anyone know the final gravity is on this or the brix?? or even the brix when to switch to secondary? I know it says 6 weeks total but the mad scientist wants to know...BEST ANSWER: You would be able to do this with just these items. You need to mount the faucet and fill the tank, and store the keg cold. Nitrogen gas is expensive so many choose to get a separate CO2 tank and regulator to carbonate the coffee first, then just use the Nitrogen to dispense the coffee. This produces more of a cascading effect that is seen in nitrogen dispensed beers. Cheers!
