Not too dark and not too light, this one’s just right, making it one of our most popular beer kits. An American-styled brew, it is clean, dry and a bit hoppy with an autumn-reddish hue that’s perfect for imbibing on a cool fall night, or any night! Dark specialty grains give it just a hint of roasted flavor. This is a beer that’s easy to drink and easy to brew. It gets a 5-star rating from our customers!

4.9 / 5.0316 ReviewsExcellent Amber KitI got this kit as my "included" kit with the Groupon equipment deal. Turned out excellent! Very smooth, crisp, slightly malty, and easy drinking. I will definitely be brewing this one again. Followed the instructions exactly but, I brewed with my hops in hop socks to keep the IBUs down (so the hops weren't sitting in the wort during cool down or in the fermenter). This batch was 1 week primary. 1 week secondary, then bottle conditioning for 3 weeks. Next time I will use liquid yeast (I wasn't a fan of the smell and flavor of the dry yeast that came with this kit) and keep in secondary for 2 weeks. This was my second kit after a 15 year hiatus from brewing. I'm enjoying brewing again and the ease of the MW kits add to the experience! It's like riding a bike!March 25, 2012Great beer for the fall/winterSkipped the secondary, other than that fallowed the directions. Turned out amazing! Everyone loves this stuff! 33cents a can and it tastes like an expensive bottle of microbrewNovember 1, 2012My first brewThis ale was my first attempt at home brewing, and it did not last long once finished. This was very easy to brew but the flavors and color are amazing for being so simple! I recommend this to anyone that likes ales and it just getting started with home brewing!April 10, 2013Smooth taste but very low carbonationThis is about the 6 or 7th homebrew I have made. Of all the ones that I have made so far, I think I like this one the least. I dont know if I messed up something along the way (although all of my past batches came out good), but the carbonation is very low even after 4 weeks in the bottle. Primary fermentation for 1 week and secondary for about 2 weeks. The color was a nice deep amber/brown, but the taste and carbonation were a bit off. I wont make this one again. Sorry MWBS :-(, lots more to choose from though :-)!January 4, 2011Great Starting Brew - Great Everyday Brew!I'm a newbie to home brewing, so this was my inaugural batch. The Autumn Amber Ale is light and slighty malty in flavor. It's easy to brew and way too easy to drink._x000D__x000D_The brew spent a week in the primary and a week in the secondary before bottle conditioning. I broke into a couple of bottles at one and two weeks, but the flavor of the beer is much better after three weeks of bottle conditioning._x000D__x000D_My kit arrived without yeast, but Midwest Supplies remedied the problem and mailed a packet of Munton's out to me. I couldn't wait for it to arrive, so I picked up a packet of Safale-05 locally and used it instead.February 8, 2013Good starter kitIt came with my beer making kit a while back. I really liked it and brewed it again this fall. Its an easy drinking tasty beer that has wide appeal, and isn't limited to craft brewers. I would never skimp on yeast and always use either liquid or safale-04 or 05. I gave it extra time in the pail to let it settle before bottling.January 4, 2014Good drinkable beerNice and smooth, this kit came with my starter kit when I ordered it with a groupon. The ale was easy to brew and fun too. I especially enjoyed drinking the fruits of my labor, and will buy it again.April 12, 2013Wait for it...While I'm not a huge fan of the style (it came with my kit), I certainly didn't expect this to taste as bad as it did after 2 weeks in the bottle. The head disappeared almost instantly and it was incredibly bland. After waiting another 3 or 4 weeks, however, I'd have to say this beer is fantastic, and people who enjoy lighter beers will almost certainly love it.March 27, 2012Autumn AmberThis is my second kit of Autumn Amber very easy drinking like having this one on handJanuary 31, 2016this has become a standardMade this a couple times and everyone loves it. Never had anyone complain about having this too many times. Let it sit for a bit and this is even better.November 2, 2012
