Alaskan Amber® Ale Clone - Eskimo Amber Ale (Extract)

Alaskan Amber® Ale Clone - Eskimo Amber Ale (Extract)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

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!

  • Makes 5 gallons
  • Estimated Original Gravity: 1.050-55
  • SRM (Color Range): 15
  • IBUs: 20-25
  • Estimated Alcohol Percentage: 5.5%

Our recipe kits DO NOT include grain bags, yeast or priming sugar. To find our yeast recommendations, choose your preferred kit option above and then select the drop-down menu under “Yeast Options”.  For more info, click on the recommended yeast(s) below in the “You Might Also Need” section below. All included steeping grains will come milled.
Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

Hi can the Eskimo Amber Ale with safale us05 yeast at 65 to 70 degrees remain in primary fermentation for 21 to 25ays?
Carl Comenzind II on Sep 19, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I think that length of time is too long unless you have a keg system to insure that you can input CO2. If the yeast does stay a little active, you will also have a higher alcohol content and less malt flavor. We allow primary fermentation for a week, and really enjoy the sweeter taste and mouthfeel of this beer
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.

A Very Good First Beer!
This came with my MoreBeer Premium Homebrew Kit and I would have to say that this is a really good choice for a first beer to brew. I made a few rookie mistake in the process and I found this beer to be quite forgiving as the beer ended up tasting really good. It remined me of an Alt bier from Dusseldorf. Some complexity and overall a very desirable flavor. Amber really isn't my first choice when having a beer but I'm sure I will someday want to purchase this kit again as I'll be having fond memories in the future I'm sure.

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.

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.
