Since I rarely have time to brew, I have been spending a lot of my free time formulating recipes for future use. Right now I am working on a Yuengling clone, but I don't know what SRM, IBU and ABV I am trying to match. I built a quick recipe on hopville and ended up with 14 SRM, 30 IBU and 5.9% ABV (a little high, I know).
For anyone that has brewed a clone, are there any critical components I should have in the brew? I plan on using a neutral ale yeast to ferment, and secondary for a good while.
