Bell’s Two Hearted Ale Clone: Grain to Glass, Triangle Taste Testing, & Comparison to the Real Deal

After seeing a Bell’s Brewery provided Two Hearted Ale recipe published in a recent issue of Brew Your Own magazine (byo.com), I adapted it for the Grainfather and brewed up a batch with Chad. The recipe, brew day, fermentation, dry hopping, and the results are covered.
Via a side-by-side blind triangle taste test, Chad and I compare the clone with the real beer and the results surprised us both!
