My buddy from the east coast is missing one of his favorite beers from home. Does anyone know a decent clone recipe for Ying Ling? It would be a dream come true for a coast dude stuck in the middle of Missouri.

No recipe - but back east we spell it "Yeungling's!" Good luck with hunting down a nice clone - they make a heck of a beer.

Hmmmm.. fermenting all the way down to 1.012 even with 4.5 lbs of Laaglander in it? That stuff is only 65% fermentable. I'd have my doubts about getting a FG that low and an ABV that high. Laaglander will make a thick brew.

Good catch.

That's a lager too, so you want as dry and as crisp as you can get. Laaglander won't get you anywhere close to that!

Use ANY other brand of extract. Laaglander is the only one that I know of on the market that is high in dextrins and finishes with a high gravity.

By the way, is that "rice" actually rice malt extract or what? I doubt it's just plain old rice from the pantry.

here is a link to the page I found the recipe on. There are a few comments about it and some deal with the rice. I am very new to brewing could you please post what you recommend here after viewing the link.

EDIT: if you read the recipe, the author indirectly states that this is 1 lb of sice solids.... whatever that is.

honestly, I'd just get a small amount of liquid rice extract and use that. It sounds like the guys on that forum are advocating using flaked rice, various types of whole rice, sice syrup.

Since you are a beginner, I'd just say use extract. Using other forms of rice (if I am correct) will require a mash so that you don't end up with a bunch of starch in your beer making it super cloudy or gooey.

Ying Ling is a great name for a Yeungling's clone
