Replace the Pilsner malt with 5 lbs of Munich malt and 3 lbs of 2-row
Replace the 1 lb of 40L crystal with 1/2 lb 120L crystal (120L is the best for reds)
Change the caramunich to 1/4 lb. (yes 1/4 lb.)
get rid of the chocolate and roasted barley

Use Hallertau and Cascade for the following additions:
1 ounce of Hallertau (3.5-4.5 AA) at 60 minutes
1/2 ounce Cascade at 45 minutes and 1/2 ounce Cascade at the last 5 minutes.

Tried and true let me know what you think if you go with the recipe.

Forrest
Does a killians have that much taste? that much munich will make it pretty malty sweet wont it?

Your the boss. i will try it and see. i may have to substitute something for the hallertau as i have none.

Looking further at my recipe the 120L should be 1/4 lb. but if you want a little more flavor you can increase it to 1/2 lb.

Comment on Tuesday 03 July, 2007
Great kit , nailed killians dead on ........will make this again

Comment
Truly amazing! AHS has done it again on this one. The closest clone I have ever made by far.

OK, Have been drinking this beer as laid out by forrest and it is very very good. It may be a bit more hoppy than i would concider Killians, but that is not a bad thing at all and the guy i brewed it for absolutlely loves it!


If anyone is looking to make a beer to try to show BMC drinkers a way to the light of good beer, this would make a fantastic stepping stone beer!


Highly recommended by the reverend!

How long has it been aging? The hops should calm down.

You could get a keg of killians and bottle it.

It would cost a little more, but all that trouble to end up with Killians blows my mind.

well grasshopper, see if you can brew a beer so clean it really has not all that much flavor compaired to other styles.

And, the guy i made it for wanted homebrew and since he threw his fantasy football match so i would win my last game and the grand prize money i figured it as the least i could do.


Forrest it has been ageing in the keg since the middle of Feb.
