I attempted to make a Stella Artois clone yesterday using the recipe below. Like I posted in the currently brewing thread, I was a complete idiot and mashed in the wrong grains. I mashed in cara aroma mistakenly when it should of been carapils. :facepalm: Colour is obviously way off.

Anyways, this is the recipe in case anyone else wants it.


German Pilsen Malt (2-Row) 73.1% of grist
German Light Munich Malt 3.4% of grist
German Wheat Malt Light 20.9% of grist
American Dextrin (Cara-Pils) Malt 2.6% of grist

Hops

0.50 ounces Perle @ 60 minutes
0.40 ounce Hallertauer Gold @ 30 minutes
0.30 ounces Hallertauer Gold @ 5 minutes
0.30 ounces Hallertauer Gold Dry Hop
1.50 ounces Total Hop Weight 8.6 AAUs

WYEAST Kolsh 2565

Primary: 7 days @ 45 - 60° F
Lager: 28 days @ 36 - 45° F
Age: 28 days @ 50 - 55° F

I like the recipe. I may give this a shit this summer, but I might use Wyeast 1007 in place of the Kolsch yeast (just because I have it on hand and I'm cheap :) ).

Unlike Jeff, I may give this beer a shot. :laugh:
Thanks for the laugh!

:facepalm2: Stupid autocorrect. Never works when you need it to.

That's okay, Jeff, I kinda feel the same way about Stella.

I think Stella is rather bland, but my brother drinks it, so I've been researching various recipes prior to his next visit. A guy who claimed to have worked at the UK brewery said this simple recipe was remarkably close to the original:

http://beersmithrecipes.com/viewrecipe/ ... ella-clone

In UK, Stella Artois is advertised as containing "only 4 ingredients: Hops, Malted Barley, Maize and Water". (I guess it IS now part of Anheuser–Busch InBev, so maybe we can look forward to beer which is increasingly inferior to the brew I occasionally drank in Europe 30+ years ago

I really like the look of your recipe Canuck, but I'm wondering whether it might produce a far-better brew than Stella has become. How do you think the wheat will affect the clarity? Typical Stella drinkers might be put-off by anything less than crystal-clarity.
TG we're not typical drinkers. :cheers:

No reason a beer containing wheat can't clear, even my American Wheat beer became quite nice and clear over a reasonable amount of time.
