I brewed a 10 gallon batch of Eschatz's recipe http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/bell...ey-come-91488/ for Two-Hearted Ale Clone with a friend a couple of weeks ago.

I used Safale 05 yeast. I let it sit for two weeks in primary as the krausen just didn't seem to want to drop. I racked it to secondary on Sunday and added the dry hops. This is a very nice recipe. Bitterness is fairly subtle for an IPA. The flavor and aroma are there, but the malt bill comes through more than most IPAs.

I will agree with the other posters that Amarillo is NOT a sun for Centennial. The flavor of Amarillo is far more floral. Centennial is more dry.

YooperBrew,

If you like SN Celebration Ale you might want to try my recipe for Vail Pale Ale http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/vail-pale-ale-60215/

Back in the day, I managed to Gold at GABF with this recipe over Celebration Ale, even though I based it on SNCA

Who can tell what judges will like?

I brewed the NB Three Hearted recently and cracked open a young bottle last pm. It was, and I am quoting someone else, "chock full of awesome!!".
If you cant get Two Hearted, brew this clone!!

That is GREAT to hear! I will rack to secondary this weekend, bottle in a couple of weeks, and start drinking in a month or so. What was your timing (primary, secondary, keg, bottle, whatever)? Did it mellow out over time, or did it seem to reach peak flavor right away?

I racked to secondary at day 8 when fermentation had slowed down considerably, but not completely stopped. I dry hopped in secondary for exactly one week. I bottled and then cracked one open after two weeks (the curiosity was killing me). It was soooo good at week two that I doubt I will let it bottle condition for much more than a month before I start full on consumption. Already marking my calendar for the next brew date of the same beer.
