Default Thoughts...

For my second batch ever I was leaning towards a Bells two hearted ale clone by Northern Brewer. Has anyone had any experience with this recipie. So far I've heard that if you tweek the hops times a little It will actually be closer to the original.

SPECIALTY GRAIN
-- 1 lbs Briess Caramel 40
FERMENTABLES
-- 9.15 lbs Gold malt syrup
HOPS & FLAVORINGS
-- 1 oz Centennial (60 min)
-- 1 oz Centennial (25 min)
-- 2 oz Centennial (5 min)
-- 1 oz Centennial (Dry hop)

Safale US-05 Ale Yeast.

O.G: 1.064 READY: 6 WEEKS
12 weeks primary, 2-4 weeks secondary, 12 weeks bottle
conditioning.


What are everyones thoughts?

You could follow the hop schedule of the All-grain clone listed on this forum.

1.00 oz Centennial [9.50 %] (60 min) Hops 30.3 IBU
0.50 oz Centennial [9.50 %] (Dry Hop 5 days) Hops -
1.00 oz Centennial [9.50 %] (15 min) Hops 15.0 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial [9.50 %] (5 min) Hops 6.0 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial [9.50 %] (1 min) Hops 1.3 IBU

My friend brewed it and really liked it. I don't know if he has compared it to the original but I am trying to get a bottle from him, so I can compare it to the one last bottle of Two hearted that has been sitting in my fridge forever!!! The color was not right though.

Good luck! Remember that this hop schedule is for a full boil and you may need to adjust (add more for bittering) if you are doing less than a full boil
