I made this recipe up just before Xmas, finally got it on tap now. All I can say is WOW, this one is not going to last long! I did 60min saaz, 30 min cascade and 10min saaz. Lagered for two weeks, brought back for d-rest, racked then to the fridge for another few weeks. I will definitely make this again and again. Always had a soft spot for pilsners.

Drinking first pint of this recipe right now.

pretty close to the original!! I subbed out the hops though. I used

1.5 oz saaz @ 60 min
.5 oz hallertau @30
.5 oz hallertau @10

I have since switched to all-grain, but when i made this recipe I converted it to partial-mash. For those interested:

3.5 # Pilsner Malt
1.5 # 2-row
.5 # flaked corn
3 # light LME

Well as it turns out, this beer is a lot closer to Stella Artois than to an American Lager. In fact the taste resemblance to Stella Artois is uncanny - hence the name.

Anyway, other than the fact that this beer is quite a bit stronger than Stella, with regards to flavor and aroma its pretty close.

I imagine you'd get even closer if you left off the 2# of Rice Flakes in the recipe. Next time I make it I will likely omit the Rice. I don't think you really need it, I just put it in there because I was trying to go big without adding a lot of body - the rice adds a bit more alcohol which makes it quite a bit stronger but it stops me at the third glass. If you want something closer to Stella thats still a guzzler omit the rice.

Here's the ingredients:

Malts:
4.5 # Weyerman Pilsner 37PPG, 2L
4.5 # American 2 Row Lager 38PPG, 2L
2 # Flaked Rice ( optional )

Mashed at 147F for 90 minutes

Hops:
1 oz Sterling Leaf 6.7% AA @ 60 minutes
1/2 oz Liberty Pellets @ 30 minutes
1/2 oz Liberty Pellets @ 10 minutes

Very simple recipe, very easy to make, very nice results.

I would love to know how to brew this in 10 gallon batches. What starting volumes of water, water profile, etc?

First off, thanks for all the great insight everyone. I'm brewing this saturday and would love to clone Stella,,, So what hops do I use!? It looks like everything has been used here and I am not a hop expert, so can I get some feedback/recommendations?

Cheers!

Since the OP said the beer tasted a lot like Stella, why not use the hops he used?
