Default Carlsberg Recipe????

Hello all! Long story short im new to home brewing and have made some of my own batches and they came out well. Im from england but now live in the states and miss my beloved carlsberg. Its 10 dollars for a 6 pack and that hurts!! Does anybody know of a good carlsberg recipe floating around?
cheers

I've only had carlsberg a couple times, but it tastes pretty much like a regular malty munich helles to me. Should be in the neighborhood of:

9.5# pilsner - must be imported from continental europe
1.25# carapils

Mash 156 30-60 minutes, boil 90 minutes but only boil the hops for 60 minutes.

Bitter with about 18-20 IBU worth of your favorite noble hop. Skip the late additions, if I remember right it isn't meant to have much hop character.
OG should be 1.050 - 1.052 roughly.

Ferment with a heavy dosage of your favorite lager yeast, and you must have perfect technique. Any off flavors or flaws will cover up that carlsberg taste, it's a pretty damn delicate beer.

Good luck, it's pretty much the most difficult style there is... so have fun with that .

It's just that to get it exactly needs a lot more gear for all that lagering and low temperature stuff.

What you might be able to do, and there's loads of suggestions and recipes on this site, is make a straight forward not too hoppy pale ale using hops normally associated with lager brewers (hallertau, saaz and so on) and a neutral yeast like Nottingham. That might get you a few of the right sort of flavours, and you might even find it nicer than Carlsberg.

What kind of approach are you thinking of taking? I bet there are some good quality kits for this type of easy drinking lager type beer given that it is so popular.

Any one in the US able to point to one easily available over there??

I have fond memories of drinking Carlsberg with fair haired ladies in Sweden, but not so much of Carlsberg.

Your not over your head, it's just a tougher beer. I'm still dialing in my process too, I started getting beers real close to carlsberg after the first couple of tries but I didn't have any good advice or tips. You can use the same recipe but use Kolsch yeast and it will be pretty close without the lagering headache.

Thanks for the highly beneficial input... now go brew an IPA.

Simply increase the percentage of pilsner malt.
