I've made several batches of this and it is very close to the real Two Hearted. I love how simple it is! I can't manage to keep a keg of this around very long, my friends always demolish it! Brewed a batch of this last weekend as a matter of fact.

I've been thinking of trying a Two Hearted clone using Maris Otter as the base malt. Anyone else tried this?

I'm really happy with it.

Default Keeping it rolling...


May as well keep Eschatz thread rolling...I brewed up his recipe over Memorial Day weekend. Using my Zapapp MLT. Hit pretty good numbers, a little short on the volume - only 4.5 gallons - at 1062. Used Bells yeast I cultured up, stepped up to 6 quarts, decanted and warmed up, fermentation popping when I checked it 6 hrs after pitch. Looking forward to end of July-ish when I can crack into one.

Brewed an extract with grains version of this last week. OG was 1.068. Took a sample today and got 1.012. Dry hopped an ounce of centennial and will let it sit before I bottle and condition. Taste was still young but wasn't bad. Color was great. I'm excited for this.

I brewed this a 2nd time a couple of months ago and had the bright (which turned out stupid) idea of dividing the 60 minute addition into 30, 15, 10 and 5 minute additions. I think I upped the total amount of hops to account for the shorter boil times.

The beer has a ton of hop flavor initially as I drink it, but then theres a "vegetal" aftertaste, and it leaves a coating on my tongue if I drink more than a couple of pints.

I will brew it as originally posted from now on.

Brewed the original recipe tonight. Plugged up my auto siphon with hops so went to plan B - bucket and strainer. Its fermenting nicely with a fresh batch of Notty. I'll keg it in a couple of weeks!

How would you modify the hop schedule for no-chill?

Default Going to dry-hop/secondary tonight


I took a hydro sample/reading last night. Sitting at about 1.010 and tasted smooth, mellow. I actually hope (and think) the dry hops will pick it up a bit.

Took a second hydro sample and still at 1.012 making it right around 6%. The sample tasted great! The dry hopping really took it to the next level. I'll let it sit for another week then bottle.
