Hello all. I am going to try a partial mash for my next brew and was looking at the kits and recipes from AHS. I have a couple of questions. First, I did some searching to find out what yeast fuel is and does but I really don't understand its effects on the final product. Second, does anyone with experience with these kits and recipes have any recomendations. (I find many APA's to be a little too hoppy for my taste so I was thinking of an Amber or an English Pale...the nut brown looks interesting too although I've never tasted one) Thanks in advance.

John

I would also like some advice on this I am bottling a Texas Blonde Ale this weekend that I used a Mini-Mash from AHS and so far it looks good and was simple to make. I am interested in an Amber or English Ale for my next brew. Thanks.

I haven't brewed an AHS kit in a while, but for several years I did a ton of them! They are all good, solid recipes with good ingredients. I can't remember all of the different ones I did now, but I remember going through a "commercial clone" streak in about 2006, where I did their clone kits of "Fat Tire", "Pete's Wicked Ale" and several others.

I really liked the Pete's and FT clone, and those might be right up your alley if you don't want something hoppy, but something with great rich flavor.

Have you ever tried Samuel Smiths Nut Brown? It is one of the best beers I have ever had and is not very hoppy. AHS has a clone kit for this. Its on my todo list

Great recipe!

This is one of those beers that you give to people that are typically BMC drinkers. It's smooth, crisp and isn't too heavy. I really liked it a lot.

To the OP: Might I suggest their Cream Ale recipe. It's really tasty!

I would say try their Fat Tire clone, it is really good and very close to original it is their second most popular kit.

Wow. Thanks for all the quick responses. This forum is awesome! Fat Tire was the first craft beer I ever tasted...loved it. it was all I drank for a while. I think Im going to do a Fat Tire clone...followed by a nut brown...and then maybe a cream ale in the summer. Can anyone tell me what the difference might be between FT and Pete's wicked. (I have never tasted that)

Thanks I am new to Home Brewing as well and had to look up "BMC" as thats what i was, even worse sometimes, but since i have been trying new beers to save up bottles without screw off tops i have found a new liking, better beer. I am thinking maybe a Real Ale or Leinenkugel clone from AHS.

Pete's Wicked Ale is an American Brown Ale. The commerical version isn't that good anymore but back in the day it really kicked off the craft American Brown Ale style. Now every craft brewer out there has a Brown Ale in their lineup.
