4.8 / 5.056 ReviewsLooks can decieveI was really surprised when I tasted this. My batch came out a very dark red color. The taste is not heavy at all just smooth malty & slightly sweet, with a clean aftertaste, great with pasta or seafood.January 10, 2013Great, but dont rush this oneFirst tasting after 2 weeks in the bottles I was disappointed, but the longer it sat the better it got. By the time it was nearly gone I fell in love with it. I will be making it again, but way in advance of when I want to drink it, will leave in bottles at least 2 months before opening.December 13, 2012Pure DeliciousnessAs a huge fan of Shiner Bock, I was anxious to give this kit a whirl. The flavor is incredible, full of that rich malty flavor I was looking for. A 20 minute kit is a great way to get a quality beer in a fraction of the brew time. Definitely worth repeating, I may even make a double batch next time!February 26, 2013Really Good Extract KitI have been brewing beer for a lot of years and now I like the "No Boil" or "Short Boil" kits. They are fast and the quality is there.
A couple of changes I made to this kit are as follows:
1. Since the LME is hopped, I do not boil the LME, however, I do use the 20 minutes to boil the hops packet in plain water.
I went to the Munton's U.K. site and pulled the instructions for the Bock kit.
I boiled 3.5 liters of Spring Water, added the LME, stirred well then added the DME and stirred the hell out of it.
Poured into the Primary added the rest of the water to 5 gallons. The temp was 86 F.
2. I sprinkle the yeast into the primary fermenter, seal it and let it go.
I let it ferment for 10 days (I would go the full 2 weeks next time..
3. I do not add priming sugar to each bottle. I prime the entire 5 gallon batch and then bottle.
The Bock beer is clean, good body and a pleasure to drink.. I will brew this one again.

1 year agoEasy!Start your yeast the day before brewing and you can be in and out of the kitchen in less than an hour! These 20 minute kits are an awesome timesaver.

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 6 answersWhat kind of yeast is included with the AMBER BOCK 20 MINUTE BOIL KIT?BEST ANSWER: No idea, there wasn't anything on the packet nor in the instructions.I am introducing a friend to brewing this weekend. I use a 10 gallon kettle. Can this kit be made as a full boil?BEST ANSWER: Sure, any kit can be done with a "full-boil" ! It makes certain that it's all sterile, since it's all boiled, so it's a good way to go! You do have more liquid to chill after the boil is complete, though. With a wort chiller, it is no problem, of course. You could boil about 5.5 to 5.75 gallons, so you end with just over 5 gallons in your primary to ferment. Happy Brewing! -Mike W, Midwest SuppliesHi. What's the shelf life of this kit?BEST ANSWER: Nothing really fresh in this kit so for best results make within 1 year, though you could probably wait for 2 full years and still get good results. Cheers!
