Well I gave it a shot with the 1028 Londa Ale yeast. Scaled down for my first small 1.5G batch. Came out to an OG of 1.064.

Has anyone used the harvested Bell's yeast for anything else?

I've used it in an American raspberry wheat and it was delicious.

Cultured from Bells Amber,
made - decanted a 6 qt. starter into 2HA clone - havested
Used for an Oberon clone. Perfect.

I have another Oberon clone fermenting now with Wyeast 1272. I hear from a good source (IMO) that this is the Bells house yeast - so I thought I would give it a try - I may harvest and brew another 2HA clone over xmas.

I use it in many different brews. Used it in an Irish ale, St Paul Porter, huge RIS (1.102), 2 APA's, and 2 2H clones. The only one where it wasn't great was the Irish Red. Tasted okay but lacked the tad of diacetyl that I sometimes like in this style. I'm planning another 3-5 brew series with it, just haven't picked the order yet.

Interesting... I might have to come up with something to make, check inventory, and see what else I need before brew club tonight.

This sounds interesting. I made a Strawberry Wheat last summer that was absolutely delicious that I used Wyeast 1010 in. I just got done harvesting from a sixer of Bells Amber and it is fermenting in an Oberon clone I just brewed last night. I'm planning on cleaning the yeast when it's done and I might have to try to use Bells yeast in my Strawberry Wheat for a change!

I am planning on using Bells yeast the next time I make this Two Hearted clone as well!

Has anyone used RO water and created a profile for this brew? If so, I was just wondering what you added and how it tasted. Thanks!

Served up the Two Hearted at brew club tonight. It was a big hit! Poured crystal clear and tasted great! I grabbed a pound of centennial before I left the shop to make more!

+1 I just got an RO filter and have been following the Primer on here but would like to know what else might be done.
