Default New Glarus Spotted Cow Clone??

Anyone have a recipe? I am currently brewing one, but I just wanted to confirm what the guy at the supply store told me?

I'm not familiar with it. What kind of beer is it? What did the guy at the HBS tell you?

You can't get the beer anywhere outside of Wisconsin, so it'll be difficult finding a recipe. I'd trust the HBS unless they have screwed up recipes before.

It's missing the corn and flaked barley that they put in it but other than that nothing. You could just steep this in some 150 deg water for 30 min. You won't get much of the suger out of them but you should get some flavor out of it.

If you can keep the temp in the fermenter in the high range for the yeast. This way you can get the fruity flavors that this beer is known for.

By FYI the way this might not be the spot to ask this question, this is in the wine area.

Welcome to the brewing craze! Another cheesehead we be taking over.

As far as I know flaked barley and corn must be mashed

Steeping at 150 for 30 mins is essentially mashing, but without properly sparging the efficiency would be way down. But for his purposes it may be enough.

Flaked barley and corn do not have diastatic power and hence will not convert on their own. An enzymatic component with extra diastatic power such as 2-row must be added to convert them, or it's not mashing, just steeping. You'll also get a pot of cloudy starch if you steep them.
