MoreBeer has collaborated directly with Vinnie Cilurzo, owner and brewer at Russian River Brewing Company, to bring you recipe kits for Pliny the Elder double IPA as part of their BrewMaster Series of recipe kits.
From the description “This is THE original Pliny recipe, given to us directly by Vinnie. This beer is an intense double IPA: High bitterness with a dry malt finish, 8% alcohol, 6 separate hop brew additions, 3 separate dry hop additions, and intense hop flavor and aroma! Pliny sets the standard for Double IPA’s!”.
I’ve brewed the all grain version of this beer and it has been one of the best beers to come out of my home brewery. See: Brewing Pliny
About: Estimated Original Gravity:1.070-74, Estimated SRM: 10, IBU’s: 198-202 (this is a theoretical number, you will actually get around 100 IBU), Est ABV: 8%.
MoreBeer is discounting these great kits 15% for Homebrew Finds Readers. That applies to both all grain and extract versions. Free shipping is in play and since MoreBeer’s cart accepts multiple codes, you can bundle this with the Deal of the Day (while supplies last).
Use promo code PLINY15 to get this deal. If you haven’t brewed it… now is a great time to give it a try. If you have brewed it… you’ll probably want to brew it again. Note that this is a short sale.
