Default Yeungling's "Black and Tan" - How would you make this ?

I really like this beer, anyone have a good clone recipe ?

Or how would you go about making it ? I was thinking of picking a well recommended porter recipe and combining it with a premium lager recipe that I really like.

Any ideas ?

I have always been perplexed as to how a black and tan could be bottled.

It's just a light colored ale and a stout mixed together. You can do it in a number of ways, from blending two finished beers to fermenting two worts together.

Create EdWort's house pale in one fermenter.
Create a Dry Stout or non-Brown Porter recipe in another.

Sample and blend at bottling time.

Your better off blending a porter, and beer together.
I think their blend is 60-40 (porter-beer)

You'll also need some corn and lager yeast.

I found that Austin Homebrew Supply has a Yeungling's Porter clone kit, I think I will order a couple of those - one for the Black and Tan and another just to see what the porter is like.

You guys think that EdWort's house pale ale would be a good choice for the other beer ? I was thinking of making a Munton's Premium Lager kit that I really liked last time... What would be a good choice for the other beer ?

I've read that Yeungling's B&T is just the lager and the porter in a 60/40 mix. That said, that would be easy to do by mixing two finished beers together.

But....I ask, why not just make black & tans the old fashioned way by mixing two beers together per serving instead of mixing them in a keg or carboy?

If I had kept all of my Mississippi Mud black & tan bottles, I'd have a better answer.

Currently in my kegerator is one keg of EdWort's haus pale, and one keg of dry stout. I'm very much enjoying black and tans made with the two, and as soon as I tried a few I started thinking about maybe doing a double brew day and then blending them right in the kegs in a future batch - though keeping them as separate batches is still very appealing as well.
