Heh heh... yeah, I'll have to try that on some of them to see the difference...
For anyone else who might one day try to clone Corona:
1. As was mentioned above, White Labs has a Mexican lager yeast. I'll probably try that in the winter when it gets colder.
2. I emailed Wyeast and they suggested a yeast for both lagering temp and warm temps like I have now (22C). For a cool ferment (typical lager fermentation temps), they suggest 2007 Pilsen Lager Yeast. For warm ferments like I'll probably need to do, they recommend 2124 Bohemian Lager Yeast.
Coincidentally, Clone Brews has a recipe for Dos Equis and another mexican lager, both for which they suggest 2124 yeast.
As a final question, can someone describe what Dos Equis is like compared to Corona and other beers? We don't get it up here, but I've got the recipe, so I might give it a try sometime too...
And I'd still like to see some other Corona clone recipes if anyone has them...
Up next - Hoegarden clone, then maybe a Corona clone
Primary - Nothing
Secondary - Nothing
Secondary - Nothing, man I should really brew something...
