You do know that recipes are just guidelines, right?  You will probably get close to the flavors with any number of different ingredients.  Why not just chose a recipe, brew it, see how it comes out, then the next time tweak it towards your perceived preference.  Whether it comes out close to Pliny is irrelevant to the fact that you will be making your own very fresh double IPA.

Honestly no I didn't.  I would have thought for consistency, the same ingredients are used time and time again.  Seemed odd that the recipe would have changed so much... but obviously they do.. there you go.

This is what I wanted though - some reassurance that the fact that they're so different isn't an issue.

I'll try it and see :)

Will take a look, appreciate the info!  What I have must be an older recipe.  It will be what it will be!

Edit - Vinnie also said on the BN he uses a little Amarillo in Pliny now. It does get a mod here and there.

The old homebrew recipe has the Warrior. He has also said the best we can do is get close, as we don't have the RR equipment and procedures.
