Presidente clone recipe

Does anyone have a recipe for the Presidente beer from the Dominican Republic? It can be either all grain or extract.

How much flaked maize is typical in an "American" lager?
This is what I was thinking:
7 lbs 6-row
2 lbs flaked maize
1 lb Vienna

.5 oz Galena 60 min

This beer is brewed in the Dominican Republic, and is delicious. It does not travel well, so I guarantee that it sucked if you tried it outside its home country. Despite being described generically as an American macro lager by, to my taste this is closer to a vienna.

Any ideas how one would go about it? I'm going back to the DR again in a few weeks (my second time), and I'm sure I will reacquire the taste. Unfortunately they only export in green bottles so I'll have to make my own. I've never tried brewing a corn/rice adjunct beer before.

I believe that 1-2#/5 gallons would be common.

Have you ever made a Lager before?

Just got back from the DR and had the same desire to make a Presidente clone. We averaged a case to case and a half a day of this stuff.

Did this recipe work?
