The Lord's Favorite Homebrew Club

Thunder God | American Amber.

Project Description

This is a clone of a beer I enjoyed in Hong Kong, from the Moonzen Brewery. The reason this beer is special to me is it’s the first beer I ever brewed that I enjoyed, and my second beer overall. The recipe was provided by Moonzen themselves and is taught by HK Brewcraft’s brewing school in their “How to Brew” course.
