Looks like unless you're running AG, it could be difficult to replicate. Check Papazian's book and/or Clone Brews, both have a potential clone recipe.

Gunner I had already seen that recipe. Might be ok but using ale yeast I would be able to lager it. I don't think. I don't do AG yet. More than likely never will. From what I read it seems like a lot of work.

Either the Amber or the Special from Forrest at Austin Homebrew. His kits are the bee's knees. Plus you can get your yeast and nutrient with it, all at one stop.

And don't let All Grain scare you. It's not that much more work. And it's a lot of fun. You have control over so many more aspects of your beer. But in the meantime, keep brewin' what you can, and work your way into the hobby, it's a great one!

BTW, Any other commercial brews you're looking to clone... I usually check Austin Homebrew first. Like I said, Forrest's kits are super cool, and he sells them at very reasonable prices.

1.4 lb Malt-dextrin
1.2 oz Tettnanger @ 5% AA (bittering)

Boil for 50 minutes. add:

I did this AG version of a dos eqius clone from the recipator.com. I couldn't lager so I used the san francisco lager yeast and fermented at 65. It was really good.

6.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 60.02 %
1.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 9.23 %
1.00 lb Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 9.23 %
0.75 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 6.93 %
0.75 lb Caramunich Malt (56.0 SRM) Grain 6.93 %
0.75 lb Wheat Malt, Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 6.93 %
0.08 lb Black (Patent) Malt (500.0 SRM) Grain 0.74 %
1.00 oz Hallertauer [4.80 %] (60 min) Hops 17.4 IBU
0.50 oz Saaz [4.00 %] (15 min) Hops 3.6 IBU
0.50 oz Saaz [4.00 %] (1 min) Hops 0.3 IBU
1 Pkgs San Francisco Lager (White Labs #WLP810) Yeast-Lager

you could sub out the pale malt for 5lbs of Light DME and steep the specialty malts

We kicked this keg in 45 minutes at a housewarming party for my friend. He got a keg of Miller light and my 5 gallons of this clone. The ML wasn't even tapped before my keg got kicked.
