I know some of you have tried this with Wyeast 1056 (American Ale). How did it turn out? I admit I did not go through all 55 pages and what I have gone through, I did not see any mention of 1056 result. Thanks.

it will not be two hearted, but i did scale the bitterness up so it will hopefully somewhat match with a bit more alcohol of a bite.
I'm brewing this tomorrow with American Ale 2 wyeast.
My projection is to hit 1.072 to give me a 7% ABV, which is what Bells is, 7%.

Very curious of this too. This will probably be my next brew and am really curious which yeast is closest to the Bell's strain. Bell's doesn't distribute where I live so I can't propagate from bottles either.

It worked out great for me.. I didn't have a side by side test when I had it but I've had bell two hearted before and it was very close in taste.

From what it sounds like, the Bell's strain really makes this beer what it is. I will have a 1056 yeast cake I can harvest from an American Wheat that I can use

Brewed it over the weekend with 1056. Missed OG by couple of points. Time to get a mill I think. Fermentation was crazy yesterday. Had to setup the blow off tube. So far so good.

Would someone be kind enough to post a Full Boil - 10 gallon extract version of this recipe?

My brewtarget is not working right.

Thanks!

I brewed a gallon of this about 6 weeks ago with US-05 yeast. I just tried a bottle and I don't think I could pick it apart from the real stuff! I'll be brewing more this weekend.


my first all grain BTW

I brewed this a few months ago and just cracked a bottle along with a Two-Hearted. Mine came out very cloudy. Also, mine has a super bitter aftertaste. Like eating an Aspirin bitter. Also, has a slight "band-aid" aftertaste. It is almost perfect at first- its just the aftertaste that kills it. I'm thinking it fermented a little hot? I'm not really sure. I definitely did not rush it. It's so close!

Thoughts?
