You should extract the bells yeast from the two hearted bottles to really make a clone! That'd be cool, and their hops are exclusive centenial hops (via their website) but cascades will work since there is a hop shortage

Yeah I had only 1 oz of centennial so the rest are cascade. I'm sure it'll be close. I hear about people harvesting yeast from bottles. Not sure how that works but I'd like to do it some time.

I just harvested from Bell's amber. It's the same yeast as 2-hearted and way easier to harvest. Check it out: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f163/yea...-amber-285524/

Cheers!

They are all bottle conditioned so u swirl the last bit of beer left in your bottles and dump 3-4 into a starter and wait, sometimes the yeast can take a few days to show activity since its been in a bottle since it left the factory and sat on shelves the whole time lol its basically a small scale version of harvesting the yeast from your fermenter lol
