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.

Easy Drinking, Not Controversial
Brewed this for my daughter's 1st bday party. Had people who drink only vodka, to people who love a pint of Guiness...also those who often choose the dreaded Bud Light. This beer catered to all the guests. All thumbs up...clean, not aggressive and smooth as expected. Try this if you want an all around beer that will please the masses. 55 bottles down in 2 hours, long live Norah Gail's Birthday Ale.

Very happy!
1st brew I've done. I think it's awesome. Very smooth. A little bitter on the finish, but pleasant. Would definitely brew again!

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!

Absolutely delicious
Tasted close to the brew share enjoy and is really smooth. Secondary fermentation is a must if you are not filtering and there is almost no sediment!

Trying to copy a local beer, Abita Amber
there is a local commercial brewery Abita, based in south Louisiana They have an amber beer and this was my attempt to brew a "clone" Just now drinking the first few bottles and the taste is very close The carbonation is a little less and it's not nearly as clear, but that's on me, a novice home brewer Overall a great beer

So far so good
Just brewed this one up two weeks ago so I'm waiting for it to finish. Trying a split yeast experiement, half fermented with 1056 and the other half with 1332. This has been a fantastic kit in the past so I'm looking forward to it. This beer tastes like it comes from a good brewpub.

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...
Lark S on Apr 5, 2016
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!
What is the approximate final ABV supposed to be for this kit?
J A on Jan 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These are acceptable ranges for the American Amber Ale:
Original Gravity: 1.045 - 1.060
Final Gravity: 1.010 - 1.015
%ABV: 4.5-6.2
Do the ingredients in the kit expire?
brandon m on May 5, 2016
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?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
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.
Is it ok to add the hops in muslin bags during the brew process?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is an argument that it will decrease hop utilization, but it should not significantly impact your beer.
