Not completely true

Quote:
On June 10, 1982, the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Co. was acquired by Stroh Brewery Company of Detroit, Michigan. The regular beer is still produced, though in relatively small quantities, by the Pabst Brewing Company, along with three malt liquors (Schlitz Malt Liquor, Schlitz Red Bull, and Schlitz Bull Ice).

I believe Sclitz is a corn adjunct beer, as apposed to a rice adjunct. If you want to clone this beer you will have to know what the adjunct is.

i would recommend getting the lone star clone from AHS and seeing how that works out. i know that after i have a few of either of those beers, they both taste the same. ginny's little longorn saloon in austin has both of those, plus pabst, in stock all the time.

Get a good American Pilsner recipe, ferment as usual, throw into a secondary for a few weeks, mix with 10 gallons of water (you could use horse piss). Force carbonate and enjoy the lack of flavor and body.

I thought BYO magazine had a shlitz clone recipe in it, in one of the last couple of issues.

I've found Schlitz to taste like a hoppier Pabst. more drinkable than most BMC, IMO, but still not something i would spend time brewing.

Why not go for a Colt 45 clone.

A lawnmower beer would be a light American ale and might be as close as you could get but would still not taste like Schlitz.

Thank god!

Schlitz is not worth the calories.
