Pliny the Elder
« on: August 08, 2017, 01:59:09 PM »
I have been hearing great things about this DIPA in general and notice a few online brew stores offer it. I was hoping to get some suggestions on who's to try?

Thx
Z

I've used Morebeers Pliney the Elder clone kit twice, not exactly like the real Pliney, but it was damn good both times

Vinnie the originator has the recipe posted on the web somewhere. Brewed it several times one of my favorite!

It's not the same these days. Relies on way more high tech extracts to reduce loses. Still a solid brew.

When was it different? He talked about Hop extracts back around 2009 IIRC.

Variations of the clone recipe could be found way back in the early 2000s. I've never seen an official clone from Vinnie/RR that called for extract.

I think he said he used Hop extracts to increase yield from the kettle. The recipes used Columbus IIRC, and extracts were hard for homebrewers to find back then. Now they are easy to find. Would he include that now?

No idea. I'd wager he is using finishing/flavor extracts as well these days.
