my first batch was a 2 hearted clone.

I followed this recipe http://www.ratebeer.com/Recipe.asp?RecipeID=128

considering it was my first batch, it came out great. I was able to get my hands on a 6 pack of the real stuff for comparison purposes and while the commercial version was lighter, the malt characteristics were very close. My brew wasnt as hoppy as the real stuff though. it needed more aroma and more bittering so take that into consideration when brewing.

1.5 oz Centennial 60
1 oz Centennial 15
.5 oz Centennial 5 min

.5oz Centennial Dry hopped for 7-14 days

Wyeast 1056 or WLP001

Makes a pretty tasty brew for sure. All the AHS kits rock!
Did you use that recipe with a 5 gallon boil?

A friend of mine was on this quest. I wonder if he ever got it right. I'll ask him. He loves that stuff, and his IPA is even better (IMHO) than Bells, so I don't know what he is after.

AHS kits are designed for a 2.5 gallon boil. I would suggest cutting your bittering hops by 1/4 to 1/2 for a full boil.

To answer my own question from AHS

Quote:
Yes, our recipe kits are written for 2.5 gallon boil. You can do a 5 gallon full boil if you choose, just reduce the bittering hops by 1/4 oz to adjust for the hop utilization of the full boil.

For this recipe, are these elements places in the grain bag and steeped before the liquid extract is added? I want to try this but want to try to collect the ingredients on my own. Thanks!

I'm brewing this today but I picked up 2 bags of carapils and forget the munich. I'll just make up the missing Munich with equal parts Crystal and CaraPils. I'm sure it'll taste good, maybe not quite like 2 hearted, but good nonetheless.

Hey dudes.
Check this site out: http://blog.flaminio.net/blogs/index...wo-hearted-ale

They confirmed the widely known Centennial hops, and said the malt is US 2-row and and some light caramel malt.
Use extract and steep some crystal 20 or 40 (maybe 0.5 - 0.75lb?). Go hard on the late hops and dry hops. Its a hoppy beer!
