Came out as advertised for first brew. Not bad, not great! Drinkable.

Much Better than expected
I'm not a huge Amber Ale fan, but it came with my starter kit. This was my first brew and the directions were easy to follow. The beer actually exceeded my expectations along with a few friends. This is one I would do again for sure.

Great beer, especially for beginners!
My wife bought me this kit to try my hand at brewing, and let me just say, I wasn't disappointed! I was worried I was going to make something undrinkable; but this was a great beer! So good, in fact, that I'm going to make more!

First time brewing and it came out better than expected.
This was my first beer I ever brewed and gave a bottle to several different people with different taste in beer. Each one of them loved the taste to the point that I had to order more. I even loved the taste when it was warm or chilled. Hope the next batch comes out as good as the first.

Not really a fan...
I didn't really enjoy this beer kit, i thought the finished product was just lacking in flavor and just didn't hit the spot for me... Oh well. I kinda wish i could've gotten a different kit. Hopefully the next one makes me a believer.

First of all thank you very much for your hard work.
This is my first time brew beer for myself. And after 50 hours later, my beer started to not bubbling. I don't know what is going on.
Am I doing something wrong?
Sung Gun P on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you are using a bucket fermenter, it likely isn't air-tight and won't bubble through the airlock. To make sure it's begun fermentation, I just pull up on one small section of the lid and check for foam. If you see foam within the first 72 hours, it's fermenting. If you are using a glass carboy, then idk.
Hi! Thank you for your hard work guys.
This was first time ever brewing beer for myself. And my beer stopped bobbling after 50 hours later. Did I do something wrong?
What should I do? Should I add more yeast? Or just wait for two weeks.
Thank you for your help

what is the alcohol % on this beer?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This beer should be about 4 to 4.5% when finished.
Is it supposed to smell like tomato soup when boiling? And also the wart was extreamly bitter and not sweet at all, any thoughts?
Brendan O on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My wort stunk to high heaven while cooking but the finished product was great
My final amount of beer for bottling is 4.5 gallons. Should I use the full amount of priming sugar or change the amount? Thank you.
Harry B on Oct 23, 2017
I’ve made this beer twice and each time I was under the 5 gallon mark by at least a 6 pack or more. I always use the full amount of priming sugar in all the kits I make from Northern Brewer and I have never had an issue. I also am not a fan of flat beer and this kit produces a good beer with a nice head to it.
Good luck with bottling. Kathy G.
Does this kit come with the malt extract and hops, too?
A shopper on Oct 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Kit comes with malt extract, yeast, hops, and priming sugar
Does this kit also include the malt extract and hops?
Kevin M on Oct 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you read the additional instructions for any of the kits, you will find a list of fermentables, hops, and recommended yeasts.
What is the fermentation Temp for this brew?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The optimum fermentation temperature for Block Party Amber Ale is 57 to 77 degrees F. This information is always available from the individual Ale's listing page by going to "Additional Information" pull down menu below the graphic of the glass of Ale. Within there, is a link to the brewing instruction sheet that comes with every kit. That instruction sheet will always tell you the optimum temperature and you do not have to be logged on to view those brewing instructions. ------- Cheers
Can you put this beer in a secondary? Mine has been going for a week now and bubbling has slowed down to every 5 minutes or so. Should I just leave it in the primary longer until bubbling stops completely?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Just leave it in primary and check the gravity in a few days. Then check the gravity again in a day or so. If no change in gravity then it is done fermenting. Bubbling in the airlock doesn't mean that it isn't done fermenting you have to check the gravity. Hope this helps.
no fermentation after adding 2 packets of yeast ?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like possibly some bad yeast, or it was added in when the wort was to warm yet and it died, or the wort is to cold and it hasn’t started yet. Lots of possibilities.
How do I know when it is done fermenting? What will it look?
A shopper on Dec 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When your bubbler stops bubbling off the CO2, active fermentation is mostly done, but you still need to let the brew stay in the fermenter for two weeks total to allow the yeast to settle to the bottom and the beer clear. This information is in the instructions that comes with the recipe kit. The instruction sheet is available on line under "Additional Information" for each kit.
What's the OG and FG on this brew?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I brewed from this kit on 3/4/17 and bottled on 3/13/17 (10 days in the fermenter). I used the dry yeast recommended for this kit (Safale US-05 Ale yeast) and did not use a yeast starter. My OG was 1.046 and my FG was 1.016, an ABV of just under 4%.
We made our first batch of block party Amber ale and it turned out great with the exception of having several bottles with sediment. How can we prevent this?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Well, you can let it sit in the fermentation carboy longer to settle out or get a filter system together to clean it up.
Any idea why it has no head? It is well carbonated, and it bubbles continuously in the glass, and tastes absolutely friggin delicious, but there's no head. It's not a problem, I was just curious why there would be no head. I brewed this beer exactly to recipe with my starter kit. It has now been bottle conditioned for about a month.
Matthew F on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In my experience, one major reason for this would be the cleanliness of the bottle. Not to say that you have not practiced good sanitation, but when I'm just rushing things instead of letting bottles/glasses, that has a major affect on the head retention.

My suggestion would be to allow your bottles to soak heavily in in PBW and then sanitize them. That in itself is the first step to diagnose the possible issue. From there it could be protein count.
Does the mallard malts expire? How long does it last sealed?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is a date stamped on the package when the greens were packed. I brewed this package a year after it was made and the beer came out fine
Does anyone know the target final gravity for this beer?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I usually get about 1.01 or 1.009 which ends up around 5% abv.
Any recommendations on making this a darker more robust ale? And when do I add ingredients during the brewing process?
Bryan M on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This ale is meant to be a lighter more crisp beer! You might try adding some honey to the beginning of the boil and maybe a second hops 20 minutes from the end of the boil. Try some nut brown ale. I really like it.
What would be the best liquid yeast strain to use?
Anthony I on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: From what i used have in the past, and I do prefer liquid yeast, I would probably use the wyeast American ale.
A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will end up being around 4.5% ABV
I have just tasted my first ever batch of beer- Block Party Amber Ale. I have to say that it has an awesome flavor, decent carbonation. However, little to no head. What mistake might have caused this?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I had the same thing happen for me.
Did you use the entire package of priming
Sugar? The instructions are different for priming. Use the entire packet and you should get better results.
What is the alcohol content? Block party amber ale
A shopper on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This should come in at about 4 percent.
A shopper on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: ABV is about 4 percent for this brew.
