Default Spotted Cow Extract Clone Help / Challenge...Will Donate $25 to HomeBrewTalk

Just as the title states. I moved away from Wisc. and am going through withdrawl from Spotted Cow.

So here is the challenge, who thinks they can best duplicate Spotted Cow.

Ive found a couple of recipes, but they are not true extract recipes, and I do not have the resources (equipment wise), and I can not go all grain at this time. If anyone has a good extract recipe for Spotted Cow Ill put my money where my mouth is and donate $25 bucks in your name to HomeBrewTalk.

So help me and help the forum!

I've had it several time while on business trips to Madison. I know a guy who knows a guy who works there. If noone else knows, I'll see what I can find out...

I appreciate that you would be willing to look into it for me if this doesn't work out.

On a side note, I'm quite jealous of your HERMS set up, its a wet dream of mine to construct something of that magnitude in the near future. Hopefully after Im out of grad school in a year and move into the new place Ill have more space to dedicate to my full time obsession. But babysteps first, new place, all grain, then build my dream machine.

Badger39, I know Brewmeister Jeff From Menominee Falls has made a clone. You might try sending him a PM.

Matt, the recipe looks like others I have seen, so hopefully it turns out for you. The problem for me is that I don't know how to covert an AG to extract, can anyone help me do the conversion of this recipe?

Again, thanks to all and your help!

I don't think you can do an extract recipe of an AG that uses corn. You could probably do a partial mash, though.
