I am using the Grain Bill from the 1st page. What SRM is everyone getting that used that grain bill? I am getting (from beersmith) ~5.3 - 5.6. In all the pics people are posting the color looks a bit darker. I have not brewed it yet (this sunday, perfect fathers day wkend - working at the st paul beer fest on sat). Beersmith states that ipa's should be SRM 6 and... I do not always follow the set guide lines...just wondering.

I will be using the grain bill but changing the hops (warrior, citra, amarillo, and cascade) and pushed up the IBU (my wife and i love the hops in ipa's

Cheers,

Edit: I am using Pale Ale Malt (3.5) besides 2 row and changed the amount of crystal and Pale Ale(added alittle more) and will let you know the out come. Should be about ~7.5 SRM. The smell is amazing in my freezer (ferment.).

I just bottled 5 gal and it looked to be about 6 srm. I used Munich instead of Vienna. It was nice and clear, but good lord it smelled like fruit candy! I dry hopped with 1oz centennial and I FWH'd my bittering addition. The chilled hydro sample was pretty dang good, but the aroma was ridiculous. Hops Direct has ruined me...

I got a growler of a highly regarded IPA for myself as an early Father's Day gift and I was almost in a hurry to finish it off to get back to my stuff. Proud parent I guess...

Default Racked to secondary/dry hops, washed yeast


I just racked 4 plus gallons of my THA clone onto some more Centennial hops. I will probably bottle this weekend June 24 ish. Seeing as how the yeast I had to work for (cultured from Bells Pale Ale), I went ahead and washed with sterile water and siphoned up some suspended yeast for storage. Next up, Decocted Oberon Clone.

Just got my grains and hops for this baby. Also chose the Wyeast 1272 over the Nottingham. I'm really looking forward to this one. Bell's Two Hearted is one of my favorite beers. Hope I nail this...

From those that have brewed this, here are my projected states...Do they make sense?

Per Brewers Friend Calculator Based on 70% eff:
OG: 1.065
FG: 1.017
IBU's: 53.07 (whole leaf hops @ 10.3 AA's)

I'm assuming the Wyeast 1272 will attenuate lower than 1.017? If not, then I'm looking at 6.3%...What do you guys think?

Boil is underway...Already smells great after the first hop addition. First time brewing this clone and I'm hoping that I nail it. Bell's is such a damn good beer.
