I have heard that Martin Luther was a beer connoisseur and that his wife Katie was an exellent homebrewer. Has anyone seen recipes or descriptions of the beer the great reformer would have imbibed? I am interested in re-creating LutherBrau, for . . . um, historical purposes of course.

Well - this is what it's supposed to look like.
Now go and get the ingredients and start brewing.

Hi; welcome to QI.

There's a recipe thread here. And on page 2 of the thread, a poster called SpanishCastleAle says that Einbeck was martin luther's favourite beer.

It gives a link to an article about Luther, but to which I unfortunately am given no access.

Yes, but you were looking for Lex Luther.
