Batch 2: 'Merican IPA: Ingredients

I picked up the ingredients for my next batch yesterday at 5 Points Growlers Beer & Brew Supply. I converted an all-grain recipe I found online for a clone of Bell's Two Hearted Ale to an extract (with specialty grains) recipe using the trial version of BeerSmith. Here's what I got:
  • 10 lb. – Pale liquid extract
  • 10 oz. – CaraPils grains
  • 4 oz. – Centennial hops
  • 1 packet – Wyeast American Ale II Yeast (#1272)
It's going to be a high-gravity hop-heavy monster of a beer! I can't wait to get started.

By the way, this just needs to be said: it kills me that "Two Hearted Ale" is not hyphenated. Correctly, it should be "Two-hearted Ale." Ugh.
