Taste is spot on for Yeungling. Color is just a bit light. Next time I think I'll use a darker Crystal malt, but I wanted to share for AGers looking for a Yeungling recipe. I used the 2112 since I can't yet Lager effectively.

Ooo. This looks tempting. I miss me some Yuengling.

Keep me posted as to how this is turning out. I grew up about 20min from Pottsville and am an avid Yuengling consumer...when homebrew isn't on tap of course.

I've never used that much flaked corn in a recipe, what will that much eventually impart onto it?

So would you step up the .75 lbs of Crystal Malt to 1 or 1.25 lbs or would you go to something like 100 or 120 L to get the desired color?

I wouldn't want to go more than .75#, probably try a darker crystal next time. Either that or keep the 80, or even go to 60 and use a little de-bittered black to get it a little darker.

I can't wait to make this. Big fan of Yeungling... I think I'm going to substitute the mentioned yeast for White Labs WLP810 since my LHBS sells White Labs and not Wyeast...

Well, I brewed this and my starting gravity was a little high around 1.056 and it tasted sweet and smelled of sweet potatoes!!! Awesome. Now a week later, the Nottingham took that down to 1.012 so that's cool, and the hydro sample tasted GREAT! I'm cold crashing it now down to 58* to let it clear a little...

I'm interested in hearing how Nottingham works in this recipe.

snevey 04-14-2010 02:25 AM

The Nottingham is STILL working its magic. I have it in an ice water bath right now at about 57* for the last week. It has went down to 1.010 since the 04/08/2010 when it was 1.012.

Oh, and according to BeerSmith this thing is at about 6.13% ABV now!!!
