Anyone tried using Pacman yeast on this? I was thinking about harvesting from the bottle but the beer cost more than a smackpack of pacman. I am thinking it would probably give the attenuation needed to pull this beer into the alcohol range it needs and it's a pretty clean yeast.

Two questions to answer here about yeast. The first one if you make a starter with the dregs of a couple of Two Hearted bottles you will need to step up the starter over time that is to say you will need to feed it wort a couple of times over the period of probably a week to get what I would consider a large enough colony of yeast cells. I'd suggest searching for bottle harvesting and see what comes up.

Second question; you could use pacman I don't see why this would be bad at all, pacman is a very versatile yeast so I'm sure it would be great for this beer. Pacman has distinct character that I have always liked, just make sure that if you bottle harvest you step up the starter to get a sufficient yeast colony.

Thanks, I'll try that search parameter. I have a stir plate I use with a filtered flask (no airlock). If I make the usual 1200ml or so of wort (1 cup DME) would I still need to step up as the 02 should help the yeast multiply out.

One more question, I couldn't find Two Hearted yesterday, but I have a few bottles of Hopslam left. Do you think they use the same yeast?

I brewed this yesterday. I've never had the original, and can't get it in Idaho. Will have to try it the next time I go east. I did a FWH with the 60 min centennials... and hit an OG of 1.067 which should give me an ABV of 7.45% if the nottingham can take it down to 1.010.

Cheers!

That Hopslam yeast would be stressed out. You wouldn't want to use that. Two Hearted would give you a better sample.

Funny, when I drink Hopslam it has the opposite affect on me.

Hopslam does bad evil things to me. They won't serve it by the pitcher at my local pub anymore because of me and a couple of guys.

Hops Direct is a great place to get the Centennial. I ordered 1 lb from them and got a few ounces more than I paid for. Also I love whole hops so I like Hops Direct.
