I googled shiner bock clone and found this in a thread on northern brewer:
From BYO magazine July/August 2004 issue page 34
5 Gal Extract OG 1.040 FG 1.010 ABV 4.3%
2.8 lbs Briess Liquid Malt Extract
2.0 lbs Light Corn Syrup (from gocery store)
.25 lbs 6 row pale malt
1.0 lbs Munich Malt (color 10)
.66 lbs Crystal Malt (color 60)
.75 oz Roasted Barley (color 500)
4.62 AAU Brewers Gold Hops
WLP940 Mexican Lager or Wyeast 2247 European lager
(I used any lager)
7/8 corn sugar for priming (I found that too high - stick with 3/4 cup (5oz)
Steep grains at 160F for 30min.
Must use lager temps and procedures!

Here's the link to the thread:

Maybe something close using MB products?

Picky, Picky!!!

Just kidding. :lol:

For a simple MrBeer only solution:
Linebacker Doppel Bock w/ Mellow Amber Deluxe Kit
Galena Pellet Hops and use just a forth of the package.
Safale S-05 Yeast

It will turn out a little better (read that as stronger) than Shiner but maybe just enough to improve your sons taste in beer.

I guess I should explain the reason for the hops.

Based on the other recipes above, you want to change the hop profile a little.

(I looked further into it and the Galena hops that MrBeer sells are the best match to the recipes above.)

What we need to do is be sure that the MrBeer HME has no lingering hop flavors and add a little Galena to mimic the Shiner hop flavor.

Heat 1.5 gallons of water and add the MrBeer mixes. Stir it up good to get HME & UME dissolved well. Bring this mix to a boil and then add the hops and set a timer. Let it boil for 30-45 minutes. Remove from heat and cool in an Ice bath. When temp is below 100*, then add to keg. Top keg off with cold water. Once temp is below 75* in the keg, use a large spoon or whisk and whip the snot out of it for a few minutes. Then add the re-hydrated yeast.

Ferment, bottle, repeat as needed.

Yes, I realize this is a very old thread but I'm interested in brewing this. I can't find the "Linebacker Doppel Bock w/ Mellow Amber Deluxe Kit" anywhere, has this been discontinued? Was it just the Linebacker and Mellow Amber UME or was something else included?

Also Galena Pellet Hops is no longer available from Mr. Beer, could I use it from a different source (such as this one: http://www.amazon.com/RiteBrew-Galena-Pellet-Hops-oz/dp/B003BD8X7K)?

All of the old base and deluxe refills have been discontinued as MB is rolling out new Coopers based products. However, you can probably find the Linebacker base refill (HME+booster) on Amazon. The pick up some amber LME/DME in place of the mellow amber UME. Galena hops should be available from any number of online stores.

Chhers!
