There have been a few times when I've wanted to make a clone brew. Those that come to mind are:
1) 80 Acre, before it was available commercially and when it was merely known as "hoppy wheat" at the brewery and at beer festivals
2) Great Lakes Burning River, because it's not available locally
3) Deschutes Black Butte - because I want something similar at home on tap

I don't feel like I need things like OG, FG, and mash temp. What I want to know is: specifically what malts and hops are used? "Wheat malt" or "crystal malt" is not very helpful. Red or white wheat malt? If crystal malt, which one(s) specifically? From there, I'm happy to play around with percentages, yeast variety, mash temp, etc.. Although, for yeast it would be nice to know the general origin (American, English, etc.).
