Young's developed the American range to bring the best of American craft brewing to the UK. The approach is simply based on the same philosophy as the American craft brewing industry; only the best and freshest ingredients are used not sacrificing quality over cost. What really sets this range apart is the use of specially selected yeasts including US West Coast Ale dried yeast sourced from an American craft brewery and Newcastle Dark Ale yeast. All used to bring out the wonderful flavoursome liquid malt extracts with progressive style hops - skillfully combined to bring you a truly inspired range of premium quality American craft beer kits.

    Best beer yet
    Review by Barryon 07/11/2017
    I have made many home brews using the best quality beer kits but this kit is a revelation. The primary fermentation was the strongest I have ever experienced.
    I left the beer for 6 weeks in the keg but when I tasted it I was blown away. It simply tasted amazing. Nicely hoppy but not overly so, a great bitter taste and really refreshing. It is quite simply the best beer I have ever brewed and can't see myself using anything but these kits in future.

    Hoppy, but not silly hoppy
    Review by Timon 04/01/2017
    This was my first crack at a home brew and a great success. I found out later that I'd misread the instructions and added too much water, but didn't suffer much loss in taste as a result. It was over 2 weeks in the FV before being barrelled; I then changed my mind and got hold of a load of bottles, because it was a warm late summer and I wanted to get this brew in the fridge. With a half teaspoon of sugar added to each bottle, the resulting beer had some head and froth, and went down very nicely on a sunny afternoon in the garden.

    Great quality kits
    Review by Martinon 20/02/2016
    A refreshing Pale Ale with a good measure of floral and hop flavours. Easy straight forward brew taking 14 days from start to bottling. However, it took a few weeks to clear in the bottle and even after 2 months still shows a very slight haze. Despite the 5.6% it slides down nicely almost a session beer if not quite as smoothly as the American Amber Ale. Like the Festival kits, these kits are really good quality but without the "in your face" hoppyness that you often get from Festival.

    Great kit
    Review by Leson 14/12/2015
    Probably my favourite kit in this range. Full of flavour, not too strong in terms of ABV and excellent value. I will no doubt be buying it again!!

    Tasty and easy to make
    Review by Colinon 09/12/2015
    This kit makes a tasty hoppy beer. The aroma of the hops is floral and distinctive. The kit was easy to use with clear instructions. I bottled it with a carbonation drop in each bottle and the beer had a good head and mouth feel. All round success. I have one bottle left and a new kit waiting for enough bottles to be available

    Cracking pint
    Review by Jaybeeon 10/09/2015
    My first foray into the world of home brewing and I'm very pleased. Beer is great, especially when left to condition. I had to carbonate the beer with co2 while in the barrel after only the first couple of pints (normal??) but the carbonation is like any other commercial ale I've tasted so I'm not that worried. As for the taste, it mellows as it ages making for a floral pint that's just hopy enough.

    Amazing Stuff
    Review by Davidon 09/08/2015
    After 21 years of brewing kits, I have just found the holy grail in this kit.

    It is stupidly good beer. The experts at Youngs have clearly done their R and D on this kit.

    The yeast, the hops, the wort....they combine perfectly to make a beer which frankly could hold its own against numerous cask ales.

    I now need to try to others in this range!

    Not tasted
    Review by Antonyon 03/08/2015
    Still maturing in bottles. The fermentation was vigorous and the yeast overflowed from the fermenting bin for 2 days.
    The kit comes with a packet of priming sugar with the advice to decant from the fermenting vessel into another sterilised vessel, add the priming sugar provided and stir to mix. Then syphon into bottles.
    However I do not have a second vessel so added 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar to each 500ml bottle. Having done this for 44 bottles I had at least 60% of the provided sugar left.
    This begged the question should I add more to each bottle. I online chatted to BrewUK and between us we decided not to add any more sugar - safety first.
    So if I had added all the sugar to a second vessel each bottle would have had the equivalent of 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar.
    There is a mismatch here - unless all my bottles turn out with no secondary fermentation.
    I wonder if anyone else has come across this?

    Delicious!
    Review by Hank R Chiefon 28/07/2015
    Following some encouragement from a friend I tried this as my first kit brew. It was excellent.
    This turned out as good as any excellent beer I have been served in a pub. To put it into perspective I have subsequently brewed 2 alternative kits since and neither has come close. The preference may well be due to subjectivity in taste but the fact is this kit turned out exactly as an American Pale Ale should taste.

    Super easy, super tasting!
    Review by Andrewon 09/07/2015
    This is my first brew kit and despite a few mishaps (the tap on the barrel leaked [my fault] so I lost all the pressure..DOH!) this IPA tastes amazing! I would agree that you should leave it a week or 2 longer than instructed as it really makes a difference to the taste. Also big thanks to Brew for helping with my problems!

    Easy to brew, tastes good

    Cracking brew - Easy and tasty! Great place to start
    Review by bobbieshakyon 14/05/2015
    This was the first homebrew kit I ever used and the results have been great. A really tasty and well balanced ale. The gravity didn't quite drop as much as it suggested in the instructions meaning it was a bit too sweet for some of my friends but I have still enjoyed it very much. Like most other people on here, I would recommend leaving the ale for a couple of weeks longer than suggested - I suspect that the (small and excusable) issues with quality could be put down to my eagerness to keg and drink the ale rather than the kit itself.
    I will definitely be working way though the various beers in this range!

    Nice APA - but leave it a bit longer
    Review by AndySon 10/03/2015
    I made this kit up in September 2014, bottling it after about 20 days in fermentation. I left it to settle for about 6 weeks before i started to drink it. I finished the last bottle at the end of jan 2015, and by then it was really nice. I would make this again if I go back to a kit, and i would give it a full 3 months before touching it.. Time is our friend,,,

    Top class kit - perfect for beginners
    Review by Disequilibrium Brewingon 06/03/2015
    OK, just like with cooking food, when making beer it is always better to start from basic ingredients. But just like with cooking, sometimes you just need a really well made ready meal. Look no further: I first made this one early on when I started experimenting with brewing, and it worked out brilliantly. Hoppy (though not up to my hophead standards) and with a very clean taste, it went down a treat with my friends and family. In fact, I now regularly make a batch to keep my father-in-law stocked up on beer, since I can make it while I am boiling up a batch of my own beer!
