Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
The Qunut al-Nazila (calamity supplication) is only performed in the fajr prayer, after the ruku, ideally without raising one's hands. In such a qunut, only, one would say amin quietly (without raising one's voice).
There is no qunut in any other prayer, or in the fajr prayer if it is not for a calamity. As such, one would not even say amin here, for it is not established that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) did so. He only did the qunut for a calamity, and only in the fajr prayer, and this is considered something exceptional. It is an established principle of fiqh that rules deduced by analogy from exceptions; analogy (qiyas) may be used only with normal cases.
Also, in this case would saying "Ameen" out loud be Makruh? (tahriman/tanzihi?)
Note, however, that doing something "somewhat disliked" is not "okay". It is something Allah dislikes, but He will not punish you for it. Servants avoid the displeasure of their Masters. Lovers don't dare displeasure their Beloved.
