Default First Recipe (Lime Mexican Lager)

I looked up some other recipes online and tried to come up with my own I'm not sure this is going to end up right though so let me know.
6 Gallon Batch

1lb Black Patent
1lb 60l Crystal Malt Grain
1oz Northbrewer Hop
1oz Northbrewer Hop
6lb Amber DMA <<< Thinking of going lighter
Mexican Lager Yeast

Mash grains, 30 Minutes around 150*. Add in Malt Extract and stir till next step 5 minutes at least -> Add in northbrewer hops and let stick for 50 Minutes -> Then add Saaz hops let boil for 5 minutes. At Flameout add lime zest then cool to 80. Pitch yeast.
Put in Primary for 7 days then leave for diecytol rest for another 7. Rack onto peeled limes and lager at 48* for 1 month.

Anyone with some experience have any insight to how something like this would come out.

1# of black patent would be nasty in a lager.
Is that a typo?

No black patent, use Light DME, crystal 20L instead. Not a pound just like 4 oz. Make sure boiling before hops.

Dude just use a pre-designed recipe.

if you want color only, carafa special is the way to go. color with no roasty flavor. were talking 2 or 3 ounces though

That beer should be very dark, like a stout color, if that's what you're going for. The crystal 60L will make it dark, not just the black patent, and the amber DME will also make it dark. If that's what you're looking for, a black lager, you can still get it by cutting the black patent to one or two ounces.

Here is a recipe for a Dos Equis clone. Whether you want it to taste like Dos Equis or just look like it, this would be a great starting point. I would just go with this recipe and experiment with adding the lime flavor to this.

We reduced the recipe to 3 1/2 gallons and the gravity is at 1.030, so far so good I guess.
