Anyone have a Hermann's Clone Recipe?
« on: July 29, 2014, 04:45:02 AM »
Hello Brewvic,

My name is Greg and I am a homebrewer who lives in Ottawa but grew up in Victoria. When I lived in Victoria one of my favourite beers was Hermann's dark lager. You can't really get anything like this beer in Ottawa, and I am working on getting a lagering system set up (have a freezer, temp controller is on the way). When I get it I really want to try and make a munich dunkel, and I was wondering if anyone had a recipe that was or was similar to Hermann's.

The website has some details.  I asked one of the brewers there, he wouldn't tell me.

Yea I saw that. Unfortunately it has been years since I have actually had a Hermann's so trying to use that information wouldn't be a huge help. I thought someone more local had come up with something it might be better. A while back I tried to ask the VI brewery facebook page if they could share any information and they wouldn't really tell me. anything either. If I can't find anything I will probably just make the Dunkel from Brewing Classic Styles.
