Default Has anyone here ever done a Schlitz clone?

First time posting but I’ve been reading for a week or so. Glad to be here.

So I’m wondering if anyone has had success in trying to do a Schlitz clone before. I couldn’t find a recipe on here. Does anyone have one or know where I could find one? I’m trying to do an extract version, btw.

It’d be great to clone Schlitz. I could take a case over to my dad’s and we could sit in the garage and drink it and he could yell at my mom just like old times when I was twelve.

Thanks in advance for your help, guys. I love this site!

Yeah, I did. Pissing in a carboy is really fun.

The end result didn't taste so great though.

Look for American adjunct lager, American premium lager or lawn mower beer recipes. That or follow Dude's suggestion.

Personally I say go wild and use some hops, make Classic American Pilsner.

Truth is you can buy Schlitz cheaper then you can make it.

Hey, don't make fun of Schlitz. That was the first beer I ever had. It's amazing I still like beer.

1 lb EXTRA SUPER DUPER LIGHT DME
4 lbs Rice Solids
.5 lbs Corn Sugar

As for hops, don't bother. Carbonation is at a level of Extremely TOO much. Add a little dog piss in there and have a little sex in a canoe...

What those guys are trying to say is it is amazingly difficult to make a commercial beer clone like Schlitz, Corona or Bud. They are lagers and use adjuncts like corn or rice and are filtered. We can make lagers, of course, but we usually make ales that are a bit fruity and maybe hoppy and maybe malty. The beers I make are not universally liked by the Bud Light drinkers, and it would be very hard to make a beer that would be in that style. And as Brewpastor said, it would be more expensive to boot!

A lawnmower beer would be a light American ale and might be as close as you could get but would still not taste like Schlitz.

Welcome to HBT, by the way!
