Default Leinenkugel Clone Recipe

Hello fellow brewers. I am looking for a Leinenkugel clone recipe if anyone has one. My lady loves the beer. I thinks it's a pretty decent wheat beer myself.

I am sure there are a fair share of craft brew drinkers out there that think it's total crap. My opinion is to each there own. Not everyone's taste buds are the same. There are people out there that would say they absolutely hate the taste of lobster!

So, with that said, i would greatly appreciate it if anyone would share a sucessful clone recipe they might have for this brew.

thanks

Leine's has some decent beers- I was drinking creamy dark tonight at a party. The only wheat beer I can think of that they have is "Sunset Wheat" which to me tastes likethe cereal "Fruity Pebbles". Is that the one you mean?

Leinie's Original is like $12.00 a case. I doubt you can make it for that. What about Ed Wort's Pale Ale?

Berry Weis? Honey Weis? Sunset Wheat? Summer Sandy? All wheat beers made by Lienies.

Took my friends and I an hour to remember that taste from our childhood, but that is exactly what it tastes like!

Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat

5 Gal

7 lbs 2 row
3 lbs wheat
1 lb crystal 20
1 box Fruity Pebbles

1.5 oz Cascade

Mash for 1 hour at 153 degrees with 3.5 gal, batch sparge with 3 gal at 170. Pitch safale 05 and ferment at 65 degrees. Wait for primary fermentation to be done, about 1 week, pick up your carboy, dump the whole thing into the street sewer and spend 7 bucks for a six pack of it at stop n shop. Drink four and realize that you don't want to be drunk off a breakfast cereal, and then go back to the store and get a sixer of DFH 60 minute or Sierra Nevada Celebration. Drink and enjoy.
