Product Details

In true west coast style, this famously fragrant IIPA beer kit features an uncomplicated yet sturdy malt backbone to which outlandish amounts of hops are added. It has a fine balance of malt, hoppy bitterness, and warming alcohol, with a fresh hop aroma of floral citrus, and pine. Bittered with pure essence of hop, flavored with massive kettle additions, and featuring not one, but two dry hoppings, it is the first and last word when it comes to the ultimate hoppy homebrew. There is no need to stash this Imperial IPA away as it is intended to be enjoyed fresh, before the delicate hop aromas fade. Get ready to experience the ultimate lupulin threshold shift!

If doing a full boil do I have to change anything?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2015
Best Answer: A full boil is great if you are able to, it should benefit the beer to be boiled at a full volume, as long as you can get a vigorous boil and quick chill afterwards. The recipe does not need to be adjusted, just the starting amount of water.

can a 6 gallon bucket be used for primary fermentation?
Brian W on Feb 18, 2015
Best Answer: A 6.5 gallon bucket can be used, with good success, but be careful. I consider a blow off hose a must considering the kits 6 gallon starting volume. One tip is to keep fermentation temps from rising very high above 70 degrees. 60-70 degree fermenting temperature reduce the risk of blow off in many cases.

Can I turn this into ,Pliny the Younger? Suggestions on how?
I have already brewed this once. Loved it!!!
Chuck on Feb 25, 2015
Best Answer: We have not developed a recipe for this so any experimenting with the recipe would be uncharted territory. Pliny the Younger uses more hops for flavoring and aroma but the bittering addition would be about the same. The triple IPA has a starting gravity of 1.088, 88% apparent attenuation and 10.25% alcohol. This would be quite the challenging brew, but you could increase the malt additions as late boil additions and bump up the late boil hops as well to make this huge beer even bigger.

Can a 6 gallon glass carboy be used for primary Fermentation?
sdchronix on Feb 24, 2015
Best Answer: You could use a 6 gallon carboy, but will absolutely want to use a blow off tube. You see a appreciable loss of wort during active fermentation and at high krausen through the blow off assembly.

Is the hops added in muslin mesh hop bags or just thrown in freely?
David S on May 28, 2015
Best Answer: I prefer using the mesh bag because I end with a much cleaner brew. I have fermented and brewed both ways and the final clean up is astronomically better with the mesh bag! All the residue is left in the bag which I dump and clean. Also, it is a very inexpensive add-on. I now use it on all my brews, even Stouts which use very little hops. One caveat - if you use the regular carboys opposed to the big mouth, be prepared for some difficulty removing the bag after dry hopping. I bought the big mouth bubbler for ease of cleanup and dry hopping with the bag. I hope this helps.

For the dry hopping 10-14 days before bottling, do you leave the hops is for the full 10-14 days, or take them out after 5-7 days?
A shopper on May 10, 2015
Best Answer: You leave the initial dry hops in there for the full 10-14 days and simply add the second dry hop addition during the remaining 5-7 days. Make sure to stick with your bottling date though. If you leave the hops in there too long, it can start to affect the flavor. Enjoy!

I brewed this 1 gallon Plinian Legacy this past Sunday. This is my first attempt at home brewing. How long should I allow the beer to ferment? The instructions said two weeks, but is that long enough? Also, I saw some comments about dry hopping. Is there dry hopping to be done in this recipe?
Troy R on Jun 9, 2015
Best Answer: I would let it go for a minimum of two weeks. If you are going to leave it in the primary fermenter the entire time I would try to avoid going longer then four weeks as you can start to get some off flavors from it sitting on the yeast for that long. The one gallon recipe does not have dry hopping to ensure that you end up with as close to a full gallon as possible come bottling time. The five gallon recipe is actually for a six gallon batch since you will loose so much to all the sediment and dry hops. I hope this helps!

I have an 8 gallon kettle how much water should I start with? I would like to do 6 but am worried about boil over?
Kevin J on May 22, 2015
Best Answer: You can start with 5.5 gallons and if you end up boiling more off than you expected you can always top up at the end of the boil. After you have brewed a few times with that same kettle you can get an idea of how much will boil off and adjust accordingly.

I only have a 5 gal brew kettle and a 6 gal fermenter, I was wondering what would be the best amount of water to boil and would I be able to get away with using blow off setup on the fermenter?
Dominic R on Jun 10, 2015
Best Answer: I would recommend following the instructions, as written, and sticking to the 2.5-3 gallons of wort in the boil. Either way, you'll need to add water to the fermenter to top it off to 6 gallons. As for the fermentation, you will need a blow-off assembly. The 6 gallon fermenter will have very little head-space for the foam.

You would ideally have at least an 8 gallon kettle in order to do a full boil.

I'm interested to do a 10 gallon batch. Simply double up the kit? I would prefer to do it all at once rather than two five gallon batches.
A shopper on May 28, 2015
Best Answer: I don't see why not. Just watch the boil because especially adding the fermentables. it's pretty volitile with all the extra sugars, and you need a few extra gallons of air in your primary carboy because this batch will puke out the top... Good luck & enjoy!

I have done all grain and extract kits. Is one batter than the other in terms of this beer?
Mmmmmbeer on May 27, 2015
Best Answer: Its a lot easier to make an extract batch of beer but the beer probably won't be as good as it could be. I think its also a lot easier to mess up an all grain kit but you can make much better beer if you do it right. Since this beer is hop forward, I did not think it made much of a difference - friends said my extract version was better than Pliny from Russian River. Contact your local NB Brewmaster for tips on how to make the best beer possible.

What (other than format) are the differences between the yeast options?
A shopper on May 28, 2015
Best Answer: Either way make sure to add enough yeast, by ordering additional packets or making a starter. Us-05, 1056, and WLP001 are essentially the same strain, just in different packaging. I defaulted to the cheap Safale US-05 and the beer was phenomenol

So a 6.5 gallon glass carboy is best suited for primary fermentation? Same for secondary?
Ajay338 on Feb 27, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, a 6.5 gallon fermenter will be good for a primary fermenter. You would ideally want a 5 gallon fermenter for the secondary to minimize exposure to oxygen.

how difficult would you rate making this brew for someone on there third batch?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2015
Best Answer: This kit is still rather approachable. There are a few extra steps, but each is explained in the instructions. If you've gotten through two brew already, you should be able to make this just fine.
