Living in Wisconsin has some truly tremendous benefits. Sure it can be cold in the winters and too hot in the summers. There is a very rural feel to much of the state and many of its citizens. Take that however you want. We are home to several amazing breweries, however. Many who distribute only within Wisconsin. I won’t make a list here as I am sure to miss someone incredible.
One of my favorite Wisconsin beers is a cream ale from New Glarus Brewery called Spotted Cow. Mjölkgård is a Swedish word that means “dairy farm”. It is my attempt to recreate this beloved brew.
Here is the Mjölkgård recipe for 5.5 gallons. I have scaled it down to 1 gallon for today’s test brew.
