One of my favorite lager styles.. Great beer. Scrimshaw..
I am trying my first lager this weekend. I've become pretty familiar with IPA recipes and getting there with stout recipes... All thru trial and error, etc..
Although I've seen many lager recipes, I have never tried one. No experience. I would attempt to put this together myself, but dont know where to start... Havent found any ideas when i google clone recipes..
North Coast website says;
--Scrimshaw is a fresh tasting Pilsner brewed in the finest European tradition using Munich malt and, Hallertauer and Tettnang hops. Scrimshaw has a subtle hop character, a crisp, clean palate, and a dry finish.--

I can use Beersmith to reverse engineer the recipe.. But does anyone with much more experience than me have any ideas? Iuse Bobby's NMODBS method and consistently get 80%eff. I have a 72qt Coleman Extreme with ss braid..
