Description

If you're a fan of Amber Ales, then you need to try this Alaskan Amber clone kit!  The recipe is one of true Amber fashion, using three different crystal malts as the only steeping grain.  Saaz and Cascade hops help to contribute some hop flavor and aroma, but are really just there to compliment the rich malt flavors, allowing them to be the focus of the beer.

A classic example of an American Amber, and certainly one of our easiest drinking kits makes the Eskimo Amber Ale a must brew!

SRM (Color Range): 15

2nd time ordering it because it's great !
Rick on Feb 24, 2021
I brewed this a few weeks ago. 2 week fermentation and then 3 weeks in the bottle at room temperature. Put one in the fridge and so far I'm disappointed. The color is good but the beer tastes a bit sour. Followed the instructions carefully. There's a bit too much carbonation too. Lots of tiny bubbles! I'm hoping it gets better with age. Any recommendations?
Thomas Tiplady on Mar 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Did it finish fermenting before you bottled it? Was everything clean and sterilized properly while brewing and bottling? As for the excessive carbonation I usually only add 3 to 4 oz of corn sugar instead of the usual 5 oz at bottling as the recipe tends to be over carbonated. I've had good luck with this recipe the 3 or 4 times I've brewed it.

Very good
This was very good. Bitterness and malt flavor is just right. Better yet, it was on sale. I would have ordered additional kits, but there were no more available at the sale price. I flagged this as a favorite..

Basement Taproom Favorite!
I've made this kit before, and it is really hard to beat! It's not only based on a personal favorite brew, but it became a favorite amongst my pals. It's roasty, toasty malty delicious. Great amber color, thick creamy head and oh-so easily drinkable!

Nothing special but tasty
I did not deviate from this recipe, not very distinguishable from any other amber ale. Flavor is good, if I buy again may add 3oz of oak chips soaked in brandy

Good summer brew
Pretty solid amber, I enjoyed drinking this one. It was malty and we'll balanced, but there wasn't much complexity to it. I used London ale iii from wyeast instead of the kolsch strain called for because i didn't want super clean (boring) finish and I liked the results. It didn't wow me enough to definitely brew it again, but I wouldn't pass it up on sale.

Trial and hooray!!!!
I normally throw 2 dry yeast packs on top of a brew, ferment 1 week, second ferment 1-2 weeks, then bottle.
This time I hydrated my yeast in water, poured it on top and changed the airlock the next day due to junk pushing through the airlock (wow), dumped in second fermentor after 5 days, then 10 days to bottle.
It taste really good, my wife even liked it!!!!
Will buy again, and again, and...

Eskimo Amber Ale
It was in the primary fermenter for two weeks and in the secondary for another week. I usually keep in the secondary longer but the timing just worked out that way. It's been in the bottle for three weeks now and is fully carbonated and has a better flavor than the previous two taste testings after one week and another after two. I don't feel it is a true Alaskan Amber clone but with more time it may be close. Regardless, it is a good tasting beer.
