Dave Lines' Brewing Beers Like Those You Buy uses 15g of Hallertau hops steeped rotten minutes then added to a lager kit

No, the book is from the late 70s, it has no IBU or colour numbers and not every recipe has an OG quoted. A lot of the recipes have what looks to be an excessive amount of hops by today's standards.
Don't forget, this recipe was based on modifying a kit. The kit would have already had some hops in it.

San Miguel a beer originaly brewed in the Phillipines a former Spanish colony. If you like this type of "beer" I think you need all the help you can get :lol:

That is why we brew, to drink what we like to drink! :mrgreen: Not to side track your post, but many times when I am trying to duplicate a certain beer I end up liking what my version becomes better than the original. Good luck!! :beer:

if you search around you can pull up some recipes for similar lagers. i think you got it sorted though. the key would be dry finish rather than hop bitterness, and your european noble hops would be choice.

not sure where a beer was originally brewed has much to do with anything, but hey..
