Trying to recreate this delicious brew. Anybody have a good AG recipe for this? Their website said the OG was 1.064. If no one has cloned this does anyone know the variety of hops they use.

Gracias
Alan

Ok so I was dumb. I did a quick search and found loads of info on this beer. I tried it for the first time on vacation recently and found it outstanding and of course you can't get it here

Anybody with a good clone though feel free to post it anyway.

Regards,
Alan

You may have checked this already, but if you're in Knoxville, TN you're not impossibly far away from Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia, all of which have Bell's. So if you ever get out there you can pick some up. Otherwise, as you discovered the search function can be helpful and I am quite sure that it is an all Centennial beer so if you see a recipe with different hops, it's probably not right (but could still be really good).

EDIT: Georgia has Bell's but based on their website does not have two hearted.

By their website, they are not distributed in GA. My brother called from FL the other day and they have it so i'm jealous and want to move back.

Oh well a single hop IPA seems pretty easy in fact easier than the one i brew now. You would'nt happen to know their water chemistry (hard or soft) would you? Impossibly hard water here. Might have to amend it some way.

Regards,
Alan

You're right. Their distributor map shows that they are distributed by Savannah Distributing Co. when I look at it, but they don't list any of their beers as being distributed in Georgia, and neither does the distributor's website. Maybe it's a coming soon sort of thing?

Also, since you have family in FL, picking up some Oberon when you're down there might be a good idea. It's a pretty popular beer around here and is available year round in Florida.

As far as water goes, I have no idea. I actually don't know much about actually brewing anything like Bell's, I just checked out their distribution the other day because I was curious if Founder's or Bell's distributes to more states. (It's Bell's, but not by much) You could try emailing them.

Obviously there is a pretty good micro brew scene in MI. I brewed the founder's Breakfast Stout from BYO without ever trying the real thing just because it sounded good. I sure would love to try the real thing because my HB version of this beer was incredible.

Regards,
Alan

+1....This is a Centennial hopped beer. Spicy peppery hops. I prefer Founders Centennial IPA over 2 hearted.......has a bit more body. JMHO
