Default Yuengling Clone

Okay - my wife and I love Yuengling. Not the world's best beer, by most standards, but tasty, especially on hot days.

Regardless of our current snowed-in condition, I am going to attempt a Yuengling clone. I have scoured the web via Google, and located more than a few attempts. Below, I have done a combo of those recipes, and would love feedback from more experienced brewers.

Total boil - 5 gallons

5 lbs Pilsner Malt
3.5 lbs American 6 row malt
.75 lbs American Caramel malt (60 degree)
1.5 lbs corn grits

Mash 60 mins at 149 degrees

1 oz Cascade Hops - 60 mins
1 oz Cluster hops - 15 mins
1 oz Cluster hops - 5 mins

California Lager 2112 yeast or WLP800 Pilsner Lager

Thoughts? Rec's?

This would be my first mashed brew. If I wanted to go extract, how would that work? I also saw a recommendation for replacing the grits with rice syrup or organic rice cereal.

I can't offer direct advice in terms of recipe formulation. I should also add that if I were trying to make a Yuengling clone, I would do exactly as you are doing. Tremendous amounts of research and then piecing it together myself.

All that being said, Annapolis Home Brew has a pretty excellent clone kit called "Pennsylvania Lager". I only know this because I sampled it during one of my trips through the store. It isn't exactly on, but it is really close, and really tasty.

Good luck in your current efforts.

Thank you, HSB! I appreciate the advice! I'll take a look at the clone.

this was my clone recipee and it came pretty close according to the yuengling fans

1 can 3.75 lbs Cooper lager LME
1 lb plain amber DME
Steep
1.5 lbs instant grits
1 lb Munich malt
1 lb 60 L Caramel malt

Hops
Bittering 1 oz cluster at 60 min
flavor/aroma
.5 oz cascade at 15 min
.5 oz cascade at 5 min
yeast
is the coopers yeast with the can of LME
fermented at 65 degress

my budies thought this was vary close to the yuengling as did i with more hops and malt than a traditional BMC beer was a nice step above those

Don't think so.

Are you trying to clone Yuengling lager? There is Yuengling Lager, Premium Lager, Light Lager, Premium Light, Porter, Black and Tan, etc.

I grew up around Pottsville and they would always discuss the ingredients on the tours. I would even say call them to ask for help, tell them you can't get Yuengling in your area, and I bet they would help.

Not being an extract brewer, I think you're pretty close on a lot of things here. I'm just not sure how the jump from 6 row and corn makes the jump to extracts though. Still, it looks close.

Back when I was on a Porter kick, Yuengling Porter was all I drank. I have two or three old "returnable" Porter bottles; probably 10 years old now.

They are on display in my beer shrine.
