So I've had this kegged for a week now. Still a little green in my estimation as I brewed it a month and a half ago but it's getting there. I dry hopped with Cascades as that was all I had, I'm thinking now I probably should have used Centennials, anyway it finished kind of sweeter than I would have wanted, I mashed a little high probably around 155-56, I think I'll mash lower at like 150 next time to try to dry this beer up a bit. It's good I just think it may be a tad more bitter than I would like and it needs to be dryer. I don't generally make IPAs these days but this is still one of the better ones I've ever made.

Just stumbled across this. Checked my inventory and I may just have to brew this one up tonight. I have a Stone IPA clone in a keg right now, DFH 60 Min clone in two primaries (the one that I remembered the Irish Moss for is A LOT clearer after just one week) and I believe if I made this I would have an IPA trifecta.

Don't mind if I do

1 Cascade dry hop (in a week or so)

I used yeast cultured from a Bell's bottle.

OG was around 1.056
I cracked the first bottle tonight (bottled for two weeks, can't wait anymore). Wow! Superb! I really like the flavor of the centennials!
I still have a couple of bottles of Bell's Two-hearted, I'm gonna chill them and do a taste compairson.
Thanks for the recipe eschatz!

Freshops has them but if you are planning on brewing more than one batch I'd say check out hops direct or Niko Brew

Thanks, Hops Direct looks great.* I'll have to check with some of my local HB buddies on a big order.

I just did my side by side comparison. Wow, is this good. They are really similar. Mine is slightly darker in color, and just a little different mouth feel (smoother?). The hop profile is the same between the two. I like mine better.
SWMBO picked out mine in a blind test. She said Bells was just a little harsher. She is not much of a hop head.

0.50 lb Crystal 10L Grain Steeped
4.00 lb Light D.M.E. Extract Extract

0.62 oz Centennial Pellet 60 minutes
0.62 oz Centennial Pellet 25 minutes
0.62 oz Centennial Pellet 5 minutes

It turned out very well, although I'm still fighting a slight chlorophenol problem.

Ok, if I make a starter out of Two Hearts dregs, how far in advance do I need to make it? For a smack pack I generally go 48 hours but I'm thinking longer.

Also, should I use two bottles or is one enough?
