Dynachrome- let me know about that Two Hearted clone. Seriously, if I could get something close to that I might cry.

Glad the properly bottled beer was well carbed and clear...and glad falling shelves and beer zombies didn't get you (as well as the unmentioned beer gnomes and beer bears)...though that would have been a better story

Here is the one I took and modified as posted originally by eschatz:

Here is the two ways I have made it: They are different, but really drinkable:

Have you had "Two Hearted"?

Although technically not a session beer, Two Hearted is my session beer. When you drink as many doubles and imperials as I do, it is hard to go much lighter than a Two Hearted. Robust flavor with a crisp lightness(relative) that allows for drinking 3-5 with little problem. Thanks for the recipes. They will be my next.

Aside from the other things mentioned in this thread I would prime by weight not volume. Like 1 ounce per gallon vs 2/3 cup. My 2 cents...

Chinese, be warned. If you bring your friends into the fold they'll drink all your beer. It's far better to let them keep swilling their Clydesdale wizz.

The biggest and best improvements in the quality of my beer came about with liquid yeast starters and temperature control during fermentation. If you're serious about brewing then temperature control is something that you should really look into if you are not already doing so.

I need to build a bridge for my fellas.
I've never been known to not accept shared beers. Sounds like we've got pretty similar surroundings.
If you ever want to do a bottle swap, I'm a huge fan of them. I love doing bottle swaps with recipes.

Sounds like you did OK with the Houblon, but be careful with the early hop additions. Even if you love hops, you can easily get way too bitter with an excess of bittering hops (especially a high-AA hop like Magnum). I learned that the hard way trying to make hoppy beers. Go crazy on your later additions and you'll be OK.
