Someone asked for a recipe to get a Heineken-like beer.
A favorite of my friends is recipe based on the Complete Joy of
Homebrewing's "Dutch Pilsener" recipe in the partial mash
Section (intermediate section?). Sorry, I don't have the recipe
in the right form since I am at work but from memory I substitute
Alexander's Pale extract for his extract and use Wyeast Danish Lager
or Wyeast European Lager (which I prefer). However, I don't
make it as real lager since I do it in the dead of winter with
my 60 degree basement. Finally, I found a hopping pattern of using
half the suggested bittering hops with 15 minutes to go rather than
all at the beginning of the boil gives a better flavor.

I made this several times and recommend especially for those wanting
to go from extract to all-grain but are prefer to play it safe. Partial
mashing is a good way to make the transition.
