Beer Style: American Amber Ale 
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 gallons


This is one of those recipes that you threw everything you had lying around into the grain bill and hoped for the best....and now you wish you had the recipe! My friend that I brewed this with refers to this beer as the "kick ass amber" recipe. I did my best to recall what we used but cannot promise measurements. Worse case scenario this recipe is a great starting place for your own kick ass amber recipe!

An important note: We brewed for a few days then all the beer was loaded up into a car and driven about half way across the state. The FG was actually 1.022 but it should not have been that high. The FG should have been more like 1.012, and if it had been, the ABV would have been higher. We suspect the fermentation was affected somehow by transporting the beer this way because we had high FG on all the beers we brewed and transported that weekend.
