ATF Hop Head Red - Whirlpool

American Amber Ales are an amber, hoppy, moderate-strength craft beer with a caramel malty flavour. The balance can vary quite a bit, with some versions being fairly malty and others being aggressively hoppy.

ATF Hop Head Red is a malty hoppy beer with a beautiful red hue. It has a wonderful mix of citrus flavours and aromas (grapefruit, orange, lime) on top of a luscious malty caramel base with hints of dark fruits. With a full mouthfeel and sufficient bitterness to balance the caramel sweetness it is the perfect marriage of malt and hops.


Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using Mangrove Jack's Liberty Bell Yeast.


This recipe employs whirlpool hopping at a set temperature of 70℃ for 30 minutes. If you are unable to maintain a 70℃ whirlpool for 30 minutes you may wish to try the hop burst version.
