- This monolith of an ale can be a bit tricky to brew—the nearly irrational quantity of hops are a monster to handle. Due to massive hop additions, The Plinian Progeny recipe has been formulated to produce 6 gallons of wort. The extra gallon makes up for loss due to the excessive trub you’ll find at both the bottom of the kettle from boil additions and in your fermentor from dry-hopping.
It may be appealing to use a hop boiling bag, but beware—keeping the hops quarantined will limit hop utilization and the resulting bitterness, flavor and aroma necessary for a triple IPA will be diminished. For the most intense hop experience, abide by the 6-gallon recommendation and enjoy the Plinian Progeny in its infancy—its best hop character fades with age.

- 5.0 / 5.01 ReviewWithout a doubt, the best IPA I have brewedI was one of the few to get one of these. I believe it was limited to 100 kits. It was pricey, but well worth it because we drank every drop. I'm hoping this will become available again. I will order it without a doubt. Now that I have experience, I would change a couple of things to increase my production.There are so many hops added to this that the amount of sediment really reduces the total amount of beer. If I were to make this again I would be very careful to filter through something (cheesecloth or strainer) after the boil when transferring into the fermenter. I didn't, and from the six gallon batch out of primary into secondary along with dry hopping and transferring from secondary into the keg, I probably lost a good two gallons which left me with kegging only about 4 gallons... but an excellent 4 gallons.I have never had the opportunity to try "Pliny the Younger" on which this clone is based, but even if it isn't a close match, the IPA itself is great.August 30, 2016
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answersbeing a 6 gallon batch, what is the recommended amount of mash and sparge water?BEST ANSWER: They overshoot the volume to compensate for trub loss. I would start with at least 7.5 gallons pre-boil volume, assuming a gallon and a half boil off. Hopefully, you will end up with at least six gallons post boil volume. This should get you to five gallons with all of the additional losses after dry hopping.How much did this kit cost and can I expect it to become available again?BEST ANSWER: When it was available, this all-grain kit's base price was $91.51. We are not sure if it will be offered again, as it was done a special release, and we only released 100 of that kit. It might not ever be sold again, it's hard to say just now! -Mike W, Northern Brewer
