Good Morning All,

I was helping a friend put together a recipe for a kits and bits BECKS clone, and i couldnt help wanting to do one of these myself.
however i would like to do a full extract recipe and just need a few ideas on the malt tins and hops.

i have a few types of grain in the cupboard:

*300g Munich
*500g Pils
*350g Medium Crystal
*500g Cracked Wheat.

i also have 250g Ligh Dry Malt, and a morgans Extra Pale Brew Enhancer LME.

If anyone can help me design a recipe for this, i would greatly appreciate it.

cheers jake.

Something like

1.5kg Light Liquid Malt
1Kg Light Dry Malt
150g Crystal Grain
250 Dextrose
20g Hallertau 8% @ 60 mins
20g Hallertau 8% @ 20 mins
20g Hallertau 8% @ 5 mins
Yeast US-05
O.G. 1.047 F.G. 1.012
21 Litres, 4.5% ABV, 33 IBU

Maybe 150 wheat as well.

Use a lager yeast if you like. I like US05 @ 18deg.

cheers

pcm's recipe looks ok, id swap out the 20 minute hallertau for hersbrucker,
I find it gives a sharper flavour than the hallertau which fits the Becks bill a little better.
Definetely go a lager yeast, 34/70 for a dry option or Wyeast 2124 or 2247.

Thanks mate, i have some 34/70 in the cupboard also and was going to use that.

Also was thinking of not using crystal but carapils instead and some cracked wheat.

*250g carapils
*150g wheat
*2x1.5 kg light pale malt
*250g dextrose
*200g my own toasted barley for that crisp bready flavour
* saflager w-34/70

*15g hersbrucker at 60 min
*15g tettanger at 20
*10g hersbrucker at 15
*10g tettanger at 10
*5g hersbrucker at 5
*5g tettanget at 0 and flame out for 20

I think thats what ill do???

Go for it, you would probably need to tweak the shit out of it in future brews to clone a Becks but that recipe should
get you a nice light bodied euro style lager, and lets face it their all fairly similar.

The time has come to brew.
