Brewing an Anchor Steam Clone - BYO Magazine December 2014

This was only the second lager I have ever brewed. After brewing the Pious Monk Dunkel recipe I needed to brew something a little easier. The final result was very close to the original.

Has anyone else brewed this recipe from BYO?

There are several variations around the ‘net for Anchor Steam.

Here’s another perspective: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/homebrew-recipe/anchor-steam-clone/

My personal Steam is 92% base + 4% each of med and dark crystal with 1 oz N Brewer at 60, 15, and 0.

I just brewed one yesterday. The recipe I used is similar to both the AHA one posted and the BYO on. I use the Imperial Yeast L05 Cablecar yeast. I chill to 55 degrees and ferment at 58 degrees (Fahrenheit). I usually let it ferment 2-3 weeks at this temperature before I do a D-rest.  I D-rest at 63 degrees before I put in a keg. Sometimes I lager it and sometimes I do not. It depends on my schedule.
California Common, or Anchor Steam, is a wonderful, underrated beer style. I hope you enjoy yours!

This is one of my favorite styles. I have been an Anchor Steam fan for decades. I started off with a recipe just like BrewBama's, but I have found that I like it better if I kick it up a bit. Now I use 10 lbs of pilsner malt, 1 lb of Munich, 1 lb of crystal and 4 oz of aromatic malt. It may not taste just like Anchor, but I think it tastes better. It is certainly more intensely flavored without being overpowering or heavy.
