One of the biggest problems trying to reproduce beer from pre 1600 is the complete lack of recipes.  
Well I stumbled across four books in the digital collection of the Bavarian library which may help: they are listed below.  I haven't gone through them yet to see if they are all the same book, just reprints or if each one contains unique information.  However, it is a start.  They are all available to view online or download as a PDF at: http://daten.digitale-sammlungen.de/~db/ausgaben/uni_ausgabe.html?projekt=1174066449
