Coors Batch 19

I'm trying to develop a clone recipe for Coors Batch 19.

What I know:

Hops are Hersbrucker and Strisslespalt. 26 IBUs, 5.5 alcohol by volume.

What I experienced:

Aroma is toasted malts and grassy hops. Flavor is malt dominant grainy sweetness with light hop bitterness.

If anyone has any input please let me know.

How did you get that stuff? Do they give it out at brewery tours?

80% 6-row 20% Corn, preferably do a cereal mash instead of using flaked adjunct. This is just a guess really.

I don't think this fits. There is definitely some caramel/melanoidin character that straight 6 row won't give unless you do a LOONG decoction. Also the color is around 10 SRM so 6 row (~2 SRM) and corn (~1 SRM) won't get you even close to that.

My guess is a mixture of 40-50% vienna and munich and the rest pilsner.

Batch 19 doesn’t exactly taste like a CAP. You can really taste some malt complexity. In addtion to what Dahoov stated, (caramel/melanoidin character), I can taste a tosted character.

Indeed. I gave thought to some biscuit in the mix as well. Unfortunately I have only tried Batch 19 once so my memory has faded somewhat. Guess I need to make a run up to Golden sometime soon. Maybe get a sixer from the gift shop.

I do like those bottles and I do have a bench capper.....

Never had it, but it sounds a lot like the pre pro type of beer I brew. It started out life as a Yuengling clone, but I morphed it into something I like better. :P

0.75 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 7.69 %

Another thought, I'm thinking about using German Lager yeast (WLP830) vs American Lager Yeast (WLP840) to give it a more malty taste.

I think I got it...

After reading this link and getting information from the brewer of Batch 19 (Keith Villa), I came up with this recipe. So after 5 weeks of lagering (I doubt Coors lagers any longer). I had to taste it. Very close to how I remember. All and all a great lager.

Seen Through a Glass: Okay, but it's still the dumbest-looking growler I've ever seen
