Where did you come up with this clone? Did you try it yet?

Pretty close

I brewed this last Sunday ad I just moved it to secondary fermentation, but just the smell is fantastic. very, very close to what I can think of the original Franziskaner.
I modified slightly the mash temperatures to get more out of the grains with my Braumeister

Mash in 38º C
62º C - 30 min
72º C - 40 min
78º C - 10 min

Boiling 60 min

I have brewed this and it turned out really well. It was a big hit. I came up with it be reverse engineering the beer using beersmith! Hope you enjoy is!

Very good

I brewed this recipe and the taste is very similar to the original Franziskaner... but the can't say the same thing to the color or body =/
I would add some more grains to correct that... and the protein rest is a must, IMHO.
