Brewed this today. Used southern germany lager yeast (WL838 ). Probably my smoothest brew day to date. Will post results in 60 days.

Just curious, have you ever lowered the mash temp to dry it out a bit?

Great recipe. Brewed this around the first of November and after 60+ days of lagering, it,s great. The only change I made from the original was to drop the mash temp to 151f. Very smooth and well balanced. Will definitely brew again. Great job Revvy!!!

Also, to make a note again. This is an excellent bottle brew. Some bottles, like hefes require a glass for consumption. This is one of those brews you drink right from the bottle after a day or yardwork, etc

While I've been gathering parts for my keezer, I've started designing little graphics for my tap handles. I've designed just a simple little handle idea with a lamnated graphic for each beer. I'm fiddling with a way just to slip the little laminated graphics into the handles so I can easily change them. But I've made a little Icon that is 2.25" wide x 3" long.

Right now I'm doing the ones for the beers that are going to be regular house beers. This one is obviously one of them.

Here's the one for this beer.

Hello,
I picked sixes up of negra modelo and amber dos equis recently and really like that style of beer.
Dos equis seems to have a bit more balanced taste with some adjunts added maybe?
Modelo might have more crystal malts added to it and it is a bit darker.

Anyway - can anyone tell me how close in taste this recipe is to either of those mexican beers?

Thanks Kevin

I haven't tasted either of them in years. But I would say this is probably closest to Negra Modelo, but with a bit more flavor.

Thanks for the great recipe Revvy!

I brewed this back in April, with minor modifications. My LHBS only had caramunich I, which is 39L rather than the 56L caramunich listed in your recipe. I also decided to substitute a bit of munich dark (9L) for some of the vienna malt, to add another level of flavor complexity; it ended up being about 9-10% of the recipe, so mine was about 75% vienna malt.

Overall this is a very nice, drinkable beer that's quite interesting on the palate. I do find it rather heavy compared to most mexican-style vienna lagers on the market, so please don't expect it to be light and easy-drinking like Dos Equis Amber (which I really like too). It's a good fall beer....a bit too heavy for the hot North Carolina summer we're having this year!

If I make this again I think I'll decrease the amount of caramel malt and see how that changes the result. The caramunich of ~10.5% plus crystal 60L of ~5.25% is quite a bit of caramel malt for me....I think it adds a bit too much body and some cloying syrupy sort of notes, at least with the 152-4 mash temp I used. These have mellowed some with 6-8 weeks of lagering, but it's still a bit much for me. Still, it's a great beer!

I'll probably enjoy this beer much more when October comes around, which is kinda the point of a Vienna lager/Oktoberfest style of beer I guess! Most likely I'll keep much of it lagering in the garage fridge/kegerator for the next few months.

Haeffnkr, if you want to make something more like Dos Equis amber I'd aim to decrease the SRM and alcohol by cutting down the caramel malt amount and decreasing the mash temp a bit. A 4% or so ABV beer made with mostly vienna and with a touch of crystal for color/body is likely closer to what you're looking for.
