You've got me confused. No hops in the boil? All dry hops?

Man good luck- New Glarus plays the cards close to the vest- in fact I do not believe they have ever provided a recipe for a homebrewer. I'm not sure Dan even likes hombrewers after a couple comments I have seen him make in an interview. He is a professional brewer and never was a homebrewer so he obviously has a different take on it. I like the beers though, with exception to Spotted Cow. Stinks, I've got to be in Wisconsin to get them, but I still give them plenty of business while I am there.

Yeah I know. Apparently someone knew one of the brewers there and they told him the hops in it (He thought Southern Cross was right, but wasnt sure on that one).

Its a great beer though and Id love to not pay $9 a six pack for it.

i made an all-cascade IPA that had a similar hop profile to moon man. I mean, those are a lot of crazy-random hops....

the key to this beer is mash low. also, 1.057 is way too high OG in my opinion. This is supposed to be a "session IPA".

I thought that mashing higher would give it a maltier flavor...did I go the wrong way?

I looked up all the hops (cause I hadnt ever hear of some of them) and while a crazy blend, none of them didnt fit, so I have to believe its close.

It should be 1.051...I forgot to change it to a 5.5G batch =D

BrewNinja, Did you ever give this a shot? I've been looking at doing a clone of this myself.

Not yet. Some of the hops are pretty special order, so I was waiting till I needed something else in order to buy them. Last I checked a few months ago rebel brewer carried them...but I didnt need anything else and shipping was high for a couple of oz of hops. If you do end up trying it, let us know how it goes.
