4.8 / 5.050 ReviewsGreat, 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, 2012Looks 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, 2013Easy and fast to brew and a good value!This was our first attempt at kegging beer and it won't last long. Great flavor.October 23, 2012Great Bock!I had a craving back in the summer for a Bock and given the success of the 20 minunte kits (which I've become a huge fan of) thought to try the Amber Bock. Wow! What a nice change-up summer beer alternative to the light lagers and ales. Not too dark, but definitely a dark amber that delivers incredible body, impressive lacing, and rich malty carmel. Turned this around in two weeks, and two days in the bottle in a warm garage where it carbed up beautifully. Use caution when opening after bottling as this one will definitely deliver huge carbonation. My advice...if you store your beer on its side - stand upright before removing from fridge and then let stand for a minute before opening. Cheers!!October 25, 2012Great amber bockThis beer works great and reminds me of a mix between killians and sam adams.October 28, 2012Easy!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. Thanks MBS!January 24, 2013Great Simple Beer KitI brewed it, OG 1.048 FG 1.016. Besides not being able to get he FG down to 1.012 or so everything went well. I let it sit for 2 week s then bottled. Tried it 10 days later and it has full carbonation and tastes great1 malty, bock taste to it. Will buy again but good quick turn around beer.January 30, 2013Great Little BeerGood beer to brew. Lots of fun and it tastes especially good. I let my age a little bit longer than normal and after a few months it turned out perfect.February 18, 2013Great BeerThis is a really good beer will defenitly make again!February 18, 2013Pure 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, 2013

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 5 answersI 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!Which Wyeast is recommended for this kit?BEST ANSWER: This kit includes some yeast from Munton's, however if you want to go with Wyeast, I would use 2206 Bavarian Lager Yeast.
