Ozark - any comments on your posted recipe?
all I can say is always use fresh hops and its real good, follow the recipe and your set
some people use 1 ounce at bittering but I didn't like it that bitter
You could always compare to Northern Brewer's Dead Ringer IPA. This is suppose to be almost exactly right (assuming the variability in each brewer isn't too much)
I've always like Two Hearted and Dead Ringer is one of the two kits I brewed (in extract) when I got free kits with equipment when I was getting started ... I recall that it was barely fully carbinated when I finished the last of it .. and I didn't share very much of that batch either.
its the same recipe as dead ringer, simple beer to brew, only 3 ingredients in the whole beer including hops, its all centennial hops, only mistake I made one time was using a bag that had aged too much (brown) and it tasted odd, learned that lesson on a 10 gallon batch :cry:

Bottled 6.5 gallons yesterday
LHBS did not have San Diego Yeast, so I used Wyeast 1272
Took nearly a week to complete fermentation. Kept it at about 62F for first few days, them moved to warmer spot
I used the yeast bed for yesterdays brew (simple Cascade-based pale Ale). Started bubbling in about 4hrs. Temp a bit higher - 66F
Great to hear
yes any chico strain will work, even US05 but SAN Diego seems to ferment more sugar and give a higher alcohol beer
