I have a couple at home... I will have to get back to you after work tonight... I guess I should be working now.

Any particular brand you are looking for?

My wife likes Corona. An all grain recipe would be nice.

Thanks

Bump.

My wife really wants me to make her a Corona clone. SWMBO, must be obeyed !

The Homebrewers Companion says that this might be close. (Page 332, Dorks Torque Mexican Crown Lager)

5 gallon batch

5.5lbs of American Pale Lager Malt
1.5lbs flaked corn/maize (Not the Kellogs type)

1/4 oz Perle hops (boiling)
1/3 oz Hallertauer (boiling)
0.25 Hallertauer (aroma)

OG: 1.040-1.044
FG: 1.006-1.010

BUs 15
Color 2-3

Mash schedule
122 for 30 minutes
148 to 152 for 60 minutes
mash out at 165F

PIlsner lager yeast

Sparge out with 3.5 to 4 gallons. Add makeup water to the brewpot to get 6 gallons. Boil off about 3/4 of a gallon.

He suggests removing the hot break. Ferment at 50-55F Lager at 40-45F for 3 to 4 weeks.

Does this sound right ?

I did a Brewer's Best Mexican Cerveza XX style beer kit recently. I was not terribly impressed with the final result. The color was more of a darker, Modelo. The taste was unremarkable, very low IBU's. It's probably the worst beer I've made in 8 attempts as far as taste goes. It just doesn't have much punch. I think the way to go is to try a lager like Corona or Dos Equis, but I like the ease of the ales.

My guess would be that your Brewer's Best Mexican Cerveza XX came out tasting exactly like it was designed to taste, to put t somewhat politely.

Charlie Papazian has a recipe in one of his books. I think you pretty much have to go all grain and use corn to duplicate it.

PM me if you want the recipe.

The actual product is pretty cheap, why spend your time on something like that? Not trying to be rude, just curious. To me it's like trying to duplicate Bud or Coors. If I wanted that I would just buy it...that is unless your like me and out in the middle of nowhere. The wife tends to love Dos Equis and they don't carry it out here so she wanted me brew her one. I told her I'd rather quit brewing
