Description

This is our take on the world famous Pliny the Elder by Russian River, its a big hoppy West Coast style DIPA that comes in around 9% abv and is not the easiest beer to get right as it can oxygenate easily, so not for a first time brewer. But when its done well this beer will keep you wishing you had brewed a bigger batch!

Add 340g of Destrose in the last 15 minutes of the boil.

Special attention should be taken on water treatment and avoiding oxygen due to the volume of hops. This beer works well when fermented under pressure.

Cold crash for 2 days around day 19.

    The clone Pliny is a challenging beer to brew. 11 different hop additions. Target start gravity of 1.083, this is very big bitter beer.
    I chose to reduce the 90min boil to 60 mins and slightly decrease my sparge to compensate.
    The result was excellent, complex, surprisingly easy drinking at 9.1%
    The hop flavours are strong and bitter a bit like Fullers 1845 Celebration Strong Ale or Stone Arrogant Bastard.
    I like this style of beer but the West Coast IPA bitterness is not for everyone.
    The original Pliny is a much cleaner smoother golden beer, more like a strong hoppy lager.
    Both good beers.
