Default My "Negra Modelo" try

Let me know what you think

http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/...modelo-tryout1

It's for a buddy's birthday coming up in late July. He likes the dark mexican lagers and thought this would be great on the porch on a hot summer's day. I don't have the equipment to do all-grain brewing by the way. Thanks for the feedback.

I don't think it needs the malto dextrin. It seems thin bodied beer to me.

Some would say not to use the dark extract. It will probably work fine for color. I don't think you need chocolate malt with it. Just use it.

Make sure to step the Vienna around 150F to get to convert.

I don't think it will be like Negra Modelo. It will be more malty and not as dry.

I thought Negra Modelo had some corn in it but I'm not sure. I'm not sure what's in those extracts so I can't really help there. I would expect an AG recipe to be mostly Vienna malt with a little crystal (around 60L), 1-1.5 lb flaked corn, and a little Carafa Special (dehusked) or Sinamar for color.

I have an all grain recipe for Negra Modelo that is dead on, but I don't have access to it right now. I can tell you that there is no corn in it but there is some chocolate.

I was under the impression that Negra Modelo was a Mexican variant of a Vienna Lager. It's been many years since I've tried one, so I could be wrong.

That's correct. IIRC, there was a number of immigrants after WWII and they settled in Mexico and started brewing there.

I wish I could find it but I would swear there was an adjunct in there and I thought it was corn.

I can believe it. Although, isn't that sacrilege for a German to put corn in his mash?

Very true. It's a damn fine beer, too.
