Sounds great Scott!

Ruination was brought to the gathering but was Young. We need to give it till next time, it ll be super good by then.

Two-hearted is on my schedule but cant make it till later on, my brew schedule is packed.

This is what I got so far for my Two Hearted clone:

2 row 77%
Vienna 15.4%
Carapils 3.8%
C-20 3.8%

Centennial 60 38 IBU
Centennial 15 19 IBU
Centennial 5 8 IBU
Centennial 0 0 IBU
Centennial DH 7 days

Yeast S-04, dont want it to dry up with US-05.

OG 1.064 FG 1.012
*If you have made the two hearted before let me know if this recipe is in line with yours.
-------------------
Super impressed with that Imperial Red I stopped and inquired about. Was that Sean make that one? I cant take it out of my mind. It was exceptionally well balanced for a brew that big. Wondering if he could give pointers or share recipe.

Looking forward to May 9th, we ll have some really good brews to sample.

Happy brewing to ya.

PS: Brewing Sublimely Self Righteous Clone as we speak; "Massive" is an underestimation here... Mash tun is full and that's a rare thing.

Castle; I just use the recipe from Northern Brewer's clone, it really is a dead-ringer. It's even better if you can harvest up some Bell's yeast. if you want I can probably bring you a slant at the next meeting.

Scott, I would love that. I have not had much success harvesting yeast. Have tried getting some pacman yeast from some Rogue bottles but again with no success. Either yeast strains much appreciated.

Remind me to bring you some (super young) Sublimely self righteous i just made today. Massive brew with massive hops and malt. Killed my efficiency though, got only 1.078 OG instead of 1.083. Still should get about 8.1 ABV.

Also, have just made some Castle Black Pale Ale, you might like it. Its just a simple everyday summer pale ale. Sample is yours as well.

See you next meeting Scott and happy brewing!

Caution don't harvest from two hearted...the yeast are too stressed...way too much grapefruit. Use bells amber, it's either a close or the same strain but a lower abv.

Unless of course you like grapefruit.... Which isn't a bad thing. My first harvest came from two hearted, though I didn't harvest that yeast there wasn't any real noticeable diffence between that and subsequent harvests from other bottles that I harvested, used, washed, and slanted. I think the mass amounts of centennial in this recipe lends to some grapefruit regardless of the yeast strain. The batch that I brought to the meeting was fermented with White Labs Danstar Nottingham which I've had banked since it came out last summer.
