Yellow solder for brass recipe

Anyone have a recipe for a good yellow solder for brass? One that
can be used on gold-filled?

There are plenty of the right colour, but their melting points are
too close or above that of ordinary brass, which i presume is a 60/40
alloy. Id use ordinay easyflo and gold plate over. Anyway, brass work
isnt worth spending a lot of time on, unless its just for fun.

I’ve used Johnson Matthey “Mattibraze 34” to solder standard colour
brass; it gives a very good colour match, much better than normal
silver solder. MP is 610-670C (1130-1238F) and it contains Cd.
