Batch #2 | Bell's Two Hearted Ale Clone


Brew Day: 11/03/12

Original Gravity: 1.052

Final Gravity: 1.018

ABV(%): 4.46

Brewing Notes:

I was surprised to see only a 1/2 oz. of centennial for the dry hop and so I might use a full ounce or so.

Rating (1 - worst, 10 - best): 8

Review:

Yeah, the only thing that I couldn't really nail was the yeast. Other than that it tastes almost identical for me. I think the 1/2 oz in the dry hop was because that's all of the Centennial I had left. Yeah, I could have mashed a little lower to make it a little dryer but I feel like it would loose a little flavor with that. Maybe I need to up the 2 row to fit the alcohol a bit better. All I know is that it's a pretty damn good beer.

First Tasting on: 12/12/12
