The Great Dane is a brew pub in my town of Madison, WI. They have a Crop Circle Wheat on tap that SWAMBO would love if I could emulate. I realize this is completely random, but has anyone tried it or seen a clone or close to?
Much obliged.

Just made one, though it was my last extract batch ever. Don't know if that deters you. Wife says it is EXACTLY like the crop circle. Still want some info?

Cool. I don't have access to my recipe until later today - so i'll get you more specifics then. But for now, i can tell you i used WY3068 Weihenstephan Weizen, around 6+lbs weizen DME, about 0.5lb carapils, and 1lb of vienna or munich. Lightly hopped with Hallertau - but it's the 3068 that is KEY in matching the flavor of the Crop Circle.

Like i said, i'll get you the specifics later, when i have access to my beloved BeerSmith.

I used Wyeast 3068 in a beer I made, interesting flavors from that yeast. I actually like it quite a bit.

I don't know how it acts with other, non-wheat beers, but whenever i hear "wheat" i think of 3068. I love the banana and clove flavors & aromas.

Not sure if this interests you or not.........

but if it does I can post my recipe for their Old Glory Pale Ale in the recipe database on here. I think I've got it pretty damn close.

I'd be very interested in getting a clone recipe for Old Glory. It's a good pale ale.

Absolutely. I'm a fan of most of the Dane's brews. I tried their Steam this weekend and was pleased to note that I enjoyed mine better
That's a nice feeling.
