As an asside, attempt #2 is still in the primary. It will probably get kegged tomorrow before I leave for vacation so I can come home to 6 carbed kegs! Very nice...
BTW, how did Yeungling Clone v2.0 turn out?

I liked #1 better. I took to a HB club meeting and people confirmed that it was definitely in the ball park for Yeungling so apparently I'm doing something right. I'm about due to do this one again soon. I am just over capacity now with primarys, secondarys and empty kegs to put them in. I need to move some beer I guess.

Just brewed a batch with cluster hops and S23.
Its in the Swamp cooler right now at 51 degrees.

6#s 2row
2#s maize
.5#s 80L
.5#s carapils

15Ibu

1/2oz Clusters @60min
1/4oz Cascade @30min

Ended up with 6 gal in the end forgot to adjust for less grain. I am usually at 11-12# in my mash.. The good thing is I got 85%eff so that more than made up for the extra 3/4gal

Also did a Iodine test for this one and at 150degrees I did not get full conversion until 75min at 5.4ph

I'm really excited to give this a try now that a temperature controlled setup is in my reach.

From the folks that have brewed this, what's the consensus on the final recipe? It sounded like the OP liked the first version better. Did the darker crystal affect the taste too much, or do you think it was it the change to Cluster?

I'm about to get a spare refrigerator wired up to a controller so I think I'm going to give Wyeast 2035 a try -- any thoughts on that? Hopefully I'll do this one in two weeks or so.

It's in the keg now lagering at 37 degrees. 15 IBUs seemed to be low. Kind of sweet. It's good, I will have no problem drinking it but 20-25 IBUs i think is the ticket. Will see if it changes in a month or so.

I brewed quite a bit of this over the winter ( and drank it too) :P.

Switching back over to 2112 from Lager yeast now that it's getting warmer.

The Cluster is a must, and I think the lb of Munich really makes a big difference.

I have not yet jumped up to AG. Do you have an extract or PM for this? I am a big fan of this beer but we have none in our area of New England.

I have yet to brew my first beer yet but being from Pennsylvania, Yuengling is a favorite commercial beer of mine. With me being new to this I am about to brew an american wheat beer. for my first. After this I would like to try the kit that Annapolis Home Brew has for the Pennsylvania Lager "yuengling". Back on topic has any body tried this? I would go with the malt and steeped grains if I try it but it won't be for some time.
