My water sits a little high in sodium, but that is obviously not ideal.

After 11 revisions of this recipe, I feel like I have finally perfected the Amber ale for my personal palate. It is almost always on tap at my house, albeit not for long.

Gone through 4 more revisions, still the best Amber I've ever had.

Love me a good amber. Is this recipe your latest revision?

It sure is, this a slightly sweet Amber and it benefits from a month in the keg to mellow. I've won a local brewery club best of show with it the other month, very happy with it.
