Looking for a Recipe
 
Evening all brewers.

I've searched hi and low but I've been unsuccessful in finding the recipe I'm looking for. Has anyone has come across a good clone recipe for steam whistle. This is one of my favorite pilsner and i would love to make this at home. It's from a microbrewery in Toronto. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Darcy

Pilsner is one of those styles that is tough to replicate exactly since there isn't a huge variation in recipes (a lot of it is process, yeast handing etc...). The reviews make it sound like it is on the less hoppy side, I keep seeing “floral” mentioned (maybe Sterling?).

You can try contacting them to see if they'll give you any help, or you can find a pils recipe that sounds close brew it, and then tweak and rebrew from there.

Hope that helps a little, good luck!

You'd be surprised. Most brewers know that a recipe on it's own won't make great beer without good technique. A lot of prominent beers have their recipes floating around the interwebs direct from the brewer. Just a couple weeks ago I emailed Avery asking about duganA's hop schedule and they sent me back a full recipe.

Some brewers aren't so forthcoming, but in my experience they are in the minority, and I've never heard of any brewer that won't give any help whatsoever.


TL;DR: it never hurts to ask.

I sent them an email, only they came back with that sort of exact information is confidential but most my questions could be answered on a tour to learn more.

I guess I'll keep searching!
