This is not a “clone”—for that you’d need the same hops (Tettnang-grown Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, anyone seen that at their local shop?), same not-so-modified custom malt, same water, a healthy dose of kräusen fresh from a fermenting batch of Schönramer Hell, the same lederhosen… you get the idea.

However, this homebrew-scale recipe might get you in the ballpark—or else inspire you to try something distinctive using the freshest ingredients you can get.
