All Grain Brewing / Chinook Only Pliny-Esque Recipe?
« on: January 26, 2015, 10:26:57 PM »
I am considering a Chinook only Pliny-esque recipe.

13 # 2-row, 1 # Carapils, 6 oz. Crystal 60, and 1 # Corn Sugar.

2 oz. Chinook @ 90 min
1 oz. Chinook @ 45 min
1 oz. Chinook @ 30 min
2 oz. Chinook @ flameout
1.5 oz. Chinook 14 day dry hop
1.5 oz. Chinook 7 dry hop
* may add more dry hop ...

Fermented with WLP001.

Expecting at least 1.075 OG and < 1.013 FG.

The above is an estimate based on More Beer's Pliny the Elder recipe. Mot quite the same hop charge but my Chinook is 14% AA.

Looking for honest feedback on what this might taste like. I suspect it may be a super charged Arrogant Bastard like taste with all of the Chinook.

Your thoughts?

I was in the same situation but for Southern California this past weekend.

Check the "where to get our beers" map, call around, and map the places near you.

I was able to find Pliny on tap @ two places. Damned good stuff on tap.

After brewing Pliny @ home, I wanted to compare mine to the real deal.

A Beersmith file would be awesome!

I dumped the list from RR and added phone numbers for the San Diego area. I'll call around tomorrow in hopes of finding it on tap and in the bottle.

I'm giddy.

What should I expect to pay for a bottle of Pliny?

We're staying in Carlsbad/Oceanside and will go to San Diego (the city) at some point too.

I will be in San Diego this weekend and would like to get my hands on a Pliny draft and a few bottles of Pliny if possible. It doesn't appear that BevMo carries Russian River.

Can someone point me in the right direction to find Pliny this weekend?

I am sold on leaving it in the keg. The keg is sitting @ 70F for a few more days then off to the kegorator.

I have a couple of those, they work pretty well.  I did find that with heavy hop loads, such as with an imperial ipa where 4-6oz might be in play, that the canister became just a constipated green hop poop log that was actually somewhat dry in the middle when i cleaned it out.

I am currently testing out a different keg dryhop method on a IIPA as we speak.  Will post about it if it ends up working out.

Interesting, I suspect a nylon would do the same. I dipped the canister into the beer a few times to ensure the hops hot wet.

Thanks ya'll for the great advice.

The hops are in a 300 Micron Stainless Corny Keg Dry Hop Filter from Utah Bio Diesel Supply. Can't beat it for $40.

I am using a 300 micro stainless steel filter to contain the hops, tied-off to the keg lid. I am curious if extended contact time leads to measurable off flavors. By extended, I am talking about until the keg kicks.

When you dry hop, how long do you leave the hops in the keg?

It seems that some limit the contact time while others leave the hops in the keg until the keg kicks.

Does leaving hops in the keg lead to measurable off-flavors?
