- 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.

- 4.6 / 5.013 ReviewsVery Solid First Homebrew ExperienceI wanted to try my hand at home brewing. This was the first batch I tried and it came out great. My friends and family all comment on "how drinkable it is".
The support through the process was top notch as well.February 13, 2018Great choice, even for a beginnerI’m new to homebrewing and this is just my second brew. I’m very impressed! Easy to understand instruction and a great beer. I would highly recommend this one and will brew it again. Just gotta decide whether to share or hide it from the neighbors!January 27, 2018Very pleased with resultsThis was my first attempt at brewing beer. The process was easy and the provided instructions were easy to follow. Great taste and will brew again.July 26, 2017Birthday giftI purchased a brewing kit for my son and the yeast packet was missingSeptember 27, 2016Response from Northern BrewerDo you want to contact us privately Rhonda? That recipe kit was purchased over the website with the yeast option selected as "none" so you were not billed for yeast since you did not order it with the kit. It makes it a required option on the website when you select the beer kit but you purchased it with none selected, meaning you would be planning to source locally or reharvest yeast from a batch. Happy to help how we can, but it was missing because you selected for us not to send it. Happy to help how we can.November 21, 2016Northern BrewerAbsolutely deliciousTasted 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!August 3, 2016Very 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!June 25, 2016So far so goodJust 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.March 7, 2016American Amber Ale Extract kitThis was my second brew. It was easy to brew. Still in the fermenter a couple of weeks to go.February 10, 2016American Amber AleVery easy to brew! I hope it is a good tasting beer, only a few week to go.November 7, 2015
- Browse 6 questions Browse 6 questions and 8 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: 4.5-6.2Anyone 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!Do 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.Is it ok to add the hops in muslin bags during the brew process?BEST ANSWER: There is an argument that it will decrease hop utilization, but it should not significantly impact your beer.The instructions listed gives directions for a partial boil. If I choose to brew full wort do I need to use the whole 2 oz package of Cascades for the entire 60 minutes or will that make it overly bitter?
