Default Peroni Clone

While at my local homebrew shop the other day I was happy to see, for the first time, a LME called "European Lager" and the picutre on the can appeared to be a picture of the top of a Peroni bottle.

I love Peroni, I tried it while I was over in London last year, and since then I haven always tried to order it when available, however it's usually not and when it is it's about $6 or $7 a bottle or $12-$13 for a 6 pack.

Does anyone have any Peroni clones? It'd be greatly appreciated for a nice late summer lager.

I really really like Peroni's Nastro Azzuro. I'd LOVE to have a clone of that (too) and have had no success in many research attempts. I'll be watching this thread for one...

Is it really worth cloning? Try finding a heineken or Stella clone, should be close enough. And make sure to bottle w/ green bottles to get that skunky flavor.

Nah, not true. Nastro has a sweet lager flavor that is exellent (and not skunky in my experience).

Yeah, Heniken and Stella are good, but not nearly as good as Peroni.

Peroni is very smooth, with a nice flavor. Not skunky like Heinikin, but a little more of a kick then Stella. Plus it's about 7% ABV compared to Heini and Stella. Overall one of my absolute favorite beers, but unfortunately not very available.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro: "premium beer is 5.1% alcohol by volume and expertly brewed using only the finest quality and variety of spring barley, maize, malts and hops"

http://www.sabmiller.in/brands_peroni.html

Not sure about recipe, but here are thoughts for Peroni Clone:

85% Pilsner malt
10% flaked maize
5% C10

"Clean Lager Yeast"
Hops: Saaz ?

Anybody have idea what Hop schedule would be for Peroni ?

So I take it you've never had Peroni.

3250g Crushed lager malt = 7 lbs
125g Crushed crystal malt = 0.27 lbs
750g Flaked rice = 1.6 lbs (? flaked maize instead?)
15ltrs water for 'lager' brewing
5ml Irish moss
60+30g Saaz hops = 1 oz
15g Gelatine
60g lager yeast

Hey.

I have just got this book, and plan to make this recipe. As I really like this beer.
One question - 60grams of yeast seems quite a lot. Is this a mistake by any chance? Any of the packets of yeast I have seen are approx 12 grams and recommended for the same size of batch referenced in this recipe.
Would too much yeast ruin the batch?
