As American as excess itself, The Plinian Progeny is an overgrown nephew and adopted son to the best-selling Plinian Legacy. The only limited part of this triple-IPA is the limited one-hundred kits we’ve released. Full-bodied with extreme hop character, the explosive citrus, pine and grapefruit resins are barely balanced by a huge 10% ABV.

Featuring three hop shots and 19 oz. of hops made up of nearly every iconic American favorite from Centennial to Simcoe, impressionable palates beware. The complex, overpowering citrus profile of The Plinian Progeny does not fade as quickly as its youthful namesake.

Product Details
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.

A Hop Monster
Brewing this extract kit solo was a challenge given the number of hop additions and volume of the boil, but so far the effort has paid off. If ya got a buddy who's interested, have them tag along on brew day.I have an 8 gallon pot and did a 5 gallon boil, topping off to 6 gallons in the primary. Head space in the brew kettle was at a premium with the trub so almost constant string was needed during the 90min boil to prevent boil overs. Prepared a 3L yeast starter of WLP001 for this brew and O.G. was 1.098! I'm writing today as I rack this to the secondary and gravity readings are coming in around 1.019 (~79% attenuation) so final ABV for this thing is looking on par with the directions circa 10.3-10.5%.Tasting the sample between primary and secondary, I get a very citrus/grapefruit forward hop presence that evolves into a nice piney finish. Still LOTS of hops to add so likely a very premature analysis, nonetheless, man I am excited to see what the final product will be!

Best beer kit I've brewed so far
If you like hoppy high ABV beers (I do!) this is for you. I brewed the all grain kit. This disappeared faster than any other beer that I have brewed. Even though it is a pricy kit, I would buy it again in a heartbeat if it was available now.

The description is not kidding, there is a lot of trub. If I were to brew again I would have a really good filter (maybe a strainer with cheese cloth?) as I transferred from the boil kettle to the primary fermenter. Once it settled and all the "junk" was on the bottom of the fermenter, I probably lost a gallon just trying to avoid pulling it all into the secondary.

Learn from my mistake, because this is an awesome kit to brew, but if they limit the number of kits to 100 or so like last time just let me get mine first!
