Excellent, I may give this one a shot this weekend. Been looking for a couple months for this recipe.

Thanks.

I will be following this closely... just came back from Milwaukee and brought 2 cases of the cow back with me. My friends love it, but getting it shipped here would be a PITA.

BK - ur the man, and were right, the NB store on Greenfield is pretty sweet. I spent a good chunk of time in there last Saturday looking around for stuff to blow my GC on.

So, i am going to brew this this weekend.

How critical is the cold crashing? And, once it drops to 32, do I take it out and let it set the remaining 2 weeks (secondary)

The cold crashing just speeds up the clearing. It isn't totally necessary. If you have fridge space, drop it to 32 and leave it there for a couple days at least. Then rack, bottle, whatever. You cold crash after fermentation to drop all the yeast and anything else in suspension, including proteins and other hazes.

So out of curiosity... the beer is cloudy out of the bottle. Is cold crashing really needed?

Or with the corn and such... is it 'extra' cloudy without cold crashing?
