    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.
