Hi sandy,

I did find some "cheddar cheesecke" recipes, but they all have both cheddar AND cream cheese. I could not locate a recipe that used only yellow cheese.

Combine crumbs, sugar and melted butter and press firmly on bottom
and sides of a 9" springform pan. Chill briefly before filling.
Let cream cheese soften in a large mixing bowl; beat in the cheddar
until smooth; add sugar and flour and beat until fluffy. Add eggs
and yolks one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the
beer then pour into the crumb crust. Bake in a very hot oven (475
F) for 12 minutes. Lower the heat to 250 F and bake for 1 1/2
hours. Turn off the oven and leave the cake in there for 1 hour.
Remove. Cool completely on a wire rack before removing the ring
