1 lb Munich malt
1 lb 60 L Caramel malt

Hops
Bittering 1 oz cluster at 60 min
flavor/aroma
.5 oz cascade at 15 min
.5 oz cascade at 5 min
yeast
is the coopers yeast with the can of LME
fermented at 65 degress

my budies thought this was vary close to the yuengling as did i with more hops and malt than a traditional BMC beer was a nice step above those
I like that. The only thing I might do is substitute corn grits and do a cereal mash for the instant grits.

BTW - does anyone have a good resource on lagering?

I've heard that yuengling uses molasses in their lager; for coloring and taste purposes.

Years ago I called the brewery and explained that I wanted to homebrew a clone of Yuengling Lager, and asked what kind of hops they use in it. The young lady I was speaking with was very nice and was thrilled with my project. She also politely declined to share that information with me!

If you go to the website it says that they use cluster and cascade in it.

My version is in my dropdown FWIW. Still could use some tweaking, but it was pretty close the first time around.

Porter and Chesterfield are my gotos. Chetty has to come from the tap though. Otherwise it's a tad skunky. Damn green bottles.

If you look in the recipes section under amber. We did a lot of work on this recipe. The biggest task would be the water profile. That might give you some insight as to what your looking for.
