Has anyone tried or had experience with this kit? Wondering how well it clones Bell's 2 Hearted Ale which is seems obviously named after.

I have had it, and it was amazing, especially after a little bit of extra time aging in the bottle. I'd definitely go for this kit.

I have been thinking about doing a two-hearted clone for my next beer, but I don't know whether to go with this or the Austin one. I am leaning towards the Austin one because you can get a partial mash, but it is also more money. Does anyone prefer one over the other?

I actually caught a similar thread in the Ingredient Forum after I posted this. A lot of people seem to like the Austin kit.


I ordered the Northern kit a few hours ago so I'll know for myself in about 7 weeks or so.

Awesome, I await your trip report. Perhaps I will get the Austin one and we can do some kind of camparo.

I currently have it conditioning in the bottle. I am at the 1 week mark so far. When bottling I stole a warm non-carb version and it tasted great. If it was good then, then I better hold onto my hat in one more week when I give it a shot. So far, I would say, get it!

P.S. I found that a starter is a good idea.

I brewed the NB kit a few months ago. It turned out great and got better as it aged. Definitely recommend it!

I've got it on tap right now. :D Very nice indeed... although I can't get the stuff to carb right (it's been on the bottle for-EVER and still fizzles out as soon as it hits the glass.) But the Centennial hops really come through wonderfully. :mug:

I brewed the Three Hearted Ale from NB a couple of years ago (extract w/steeping grains). It was chock full of awesomeness.

(However, I've never had the Bell's version. Haven't ever found it in New England.)
