The Mule American Amber Ale BeerCo All Grain Recipe Kit contains Gladfield American Ale, Dark Crystal & Gladiator Malts, Crosby Cascade Hops & your choice of either 2 x Danstar Nottingham Ale Yeast or a gold pitch of GY011 GigaYeast British Ale Yeast #1 .  This is a clean balanced easy drinking fresh American Amber Ale.  We hop you love it – happy muling 🙂



The Mule – American Amber Ale – All Grain Recipe Kit is named in honour of our co-founder Gus who has ‘muled’ some awesome ales across the Pacific Ocean from the Pacific NW to SoCal, USA ‘back home’ to Melbourne, AU much to our drinking delight 🙂

The Mule American Amber Ale is based loosely on a favourite US Craft Amber Ale of Gus’ Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale .  Taking a few clues from The Jamil Show – Can You Brew It  on the real deal and adding a few of our own twists in the tail we came up with this take on an American classic Amber Ale and we rather like it!  Hope you do too and if you brew it please do feel free to share with us your thoughts and feedback and ideas – cheers!

    Finally a beer I made that impressed everyone, including myself.
    I made the mule American amber ale as my 4th attempt at all grain beer. Previous attempts were average and I’m still learning. However, as soon as I kegged this one, I knew from smelling and tasting the wort from the fermenter knew there was going to something special here, and I was right. After about a month on the keg the aroma and flavor was astonishing. This one is a crowd pleaser, that you can talk up – Can’t wait to do it again. Excellent service and instructions included.
    Tip – I did use the Idaho Hops in this one, by mistake actually and it turned out great. I also dry hopped after 72 hrs in the fermenter.
