I don't think Vienna Lagers typically include adjunct grains, but that doesn't mean it won't make a good beer!
I realize that. It would be more of an "international" amber lager at this point. Sort of like a mexican version of a vienna lager (modelo negra, XX amber, etc)
Looks like a winner to me.
I made a Vienna Smash recently and used Sterling. Really enjoyed it.
Adjunct is not to style and I'd use 100% Vienna as my base grains. That said, your recipe should make a nice, drinkable American lager....
Mine does and I love it
That's more like it! Looks like a Festbier...
I cloned a local brewery's recipe of a Mexican amber/dark lager, equal parts pils/vienna/munich/corn with just a touch of Carafa, ferment with 34/70, comes out fantastic. Your recipe looks excellent.
As mentioned, it’s not supposed to be a traditional Vienna…
I’m sure that’s good! Too much crystal malt for my taste.
You titled it as a Vienna lager and then asked for our thoughts without any context lol you got a bunch of style nerds giving their thoughts
First of all I called it an adjunct Vienna lager from the beginning. I thought the beer nerds would know what that is. Apparently not…
sorry all. It’s an international amber lager based on a mexican adjunct Vienna lager. Hopefully that’s more specific. My bad.
Not sure on the style but would some 30 min flavour hops help out?
I just always throw in some 30 min or later hop additions on even lagers.
Looks tasty I look forward to seeing it In the glass
Sure thing. It looks tasty to me, excited to hear how it turns out
Didn’t mean to be obtuse.
Mexican beer is a result of German immigrants bringing their beer styles and using local ingredients. Amber Mexican beers are stylistically very much Vienna Lagers with the addition of corn adjunct. Your recipe looks pretty perfect in that regard. Brew on!
I agree I've made a recipe similar, just looked it up
