Modelo Especial Clone?
 
I really like Modelo Especial but all I can find is Negra clones. I know its similar to any other light lager but does anybody have any suggestions? I like Tecate also but its not quite the same.

Thanks no suggestions I guess.

I just bottled a lager and it tastes very similar to Especial. Recipe is all-grain though. I'll post if you want it, but a good portion is Vienna malt, which would need to be mashed.

Thanks for the recipe. One question corn starch? Is this the corn starch from one's kitchen?

Yep. It's a Charlie Papazian trick. It's the same thing you get from flaked corn but cheaper. It MUST be added to a mash to convert to fermentable sugar.
