Beer Style: American Amber Ale  (10B)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

American Amber Ale


The idea was to combine the gravity and carbonation of an English mild with the color and flavor of a Pacific Northwest amber (Hale's Moss Bay Extra is my favorite). The hop bitterness and flavor is quite citrus- like, and dominates the flavor profile. This is rather standard for West Coast beers but pretty explosive in comparison to ordinary commercial brews. It turned out quite nicely, and amazingly fast: from kettle to beer glass in 15 days. Cheap, too.


  • 3.3 pounds, American Classic light liquid extract
  • 1 pound, Laaglander light dry malt extract
  • 1/2 pound, crystal malt (40L)
  • 1 teaspoon, Irish moss (10 minute boil)
  • 1/2 ounce, Cascade pellets (60 minute boil)
  • 1--1/2 ounces, Cascade pellets (20 minute boil)
  • 1 ounce, Cascade pellets (finish after boil)
  • 1 ounce, Cascade pellets (dry hop in secondary)
  • 2 packages, Munton & Fison ale yeast (rehydrated)
  • 1/2 cup, corn sugar (priming)
