I brewed this beer (Two Hearted Ale) several times about 2 years ago. It tuned out nearly identical to store bought and was very good. I used this recipe:
The actual gravity for this beer is 1.064 The FG is 1.010 Yeast is taken from a bottle of Bells Amber (their Pale Ale also works) 10 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 76.92 % 2 lbs Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 15.38 % 8.0 oz Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 3.85 % 8.0 oz...
This thread got me thinking about brewing it again and I found this recipe from Bell's so I would think it might be better:
TWO HEARTED ALE CLONE - 5 GALLONS Two Hearted Ale is one of the defining American-style India Pale Ales. This beer is bursting with aromas ranging from pine resins to grapefruit notes from the use of 100% Centennial hops. Kits now include our exclusive Two Hearted Ale Centennial Select hops...
Does anybody have any experience with both and have a preference?
Also, Bell's recipe calls for both Briess 2-Row Brewer's Malt and Pale Ale Malt. If I used just 2-Row do you think it would be noticeable?
