On a Roll – Brewing Again!

Two Hearted Ale IPA LabelLast minute decision – time to brew an IPA!  I recently found a clone recipe for Bell’s Two Hearted IPA and I’d like to give it a shot.  I did mix it up a bit, by juggling the crystal malts and adding some corn sugar to dry out the ale.  I’ll also be using White Labs Pacific Ale yeast – just because I love it so much.  I used a couple additional White Labs Cal Ale yeast vials that were outdated by a month, but they should add to the yeast cell count by a huge margin – and then get out of the way.

In the past, I’ve embraced single hopped ales – to get to know the bittering and flavor profiles of the hops.  I’ve also told numerous people over the past few years that if I was stranded on desert isle, with only one hop – it would be Centennials, so I’m excited to taste this ale.
