I haven't gotten to it yet. Recently, I brewed twenty gallons of Snake Dog IPA (another thread) which turned out pretty good. The next brew session is a Celebration Ale and then I plan to try the Founder's recipe and will follow up. I'm not quite sure how I got sidetracked on the Snake Dog IPA before the Founders.

Would love to hear how it turned and see a recipe as well. I recently had Founders for the first time and loved it. Better and more complex than 2 hearted IMO although I like both. I've cloned 2 hearted a couple of times and have been pleased and now I'm interested in trying the Founders version.

Have noticed a few references to this beer in the month since ive been on the forum. Saw it at a hole-in-the wall bar tonight in "nowhere" CT and was surprised to see it among just a few other options. Not bad, didn't think it lived up to all the hype though. Really cool that commercial brewers will share the recipe "for the love of the sport"

One thing I've noticed about Centennial is that it doesn't age too well as compared to other, similar IPA's like Two-Hearted. But when it is fresh, Centennial is nearly impossible to top.

I love that this thread plays out over six years but doesn't read like it.

I can see that because Centennial seems to be drier with more pronounced hop character, while Two-hearted has more malt backbone. Hops tend to break down and change in a shorter amount of time.

That makes sense.

Default 10 gallon recipe

This may change before I brew next weekend, but here is what I have thus far for a ten gallon batch in Brewsmith. Suggestions are welcome!

Note: I noticed that I have it as an All Grain, but I'm using 3# of DME...so it is technically a Partial Mash.
