Big Monster Brewing – Messing with that Amber Ale again

The 2023 Florida State Competition circuit is nearly complete, and I have a bit more brewing to do before it all ends.

This time, I’m brewing a tried and true style that is not only a crowd-pleaser but is one of my favorite styles to brew and drink.

American Amber Ale is the style for this brew, and it’s a malt-forward beer with enough hop character to give this style a broad interpretation and look of fun to experiment with. 

There’s one more competition this season, and I want to help my club capture the state championship. I tinker with my Amber Ale recipe yet again to help accomplish this. Did it work? We’ll find out soon!

Post-brew details: Since this recording, I’ve named this beer “Red Wolf Astronaut” and created an AI-generated label with Adobe Firefly and Photoshop. You can see that label and all the other labels for Big Monster Beers on the Label Gallery page.
