The Plinian Legacy Double IPA Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Brewed with Columbus, Centennial, Amarillo® and Simcoe®, this quintessential double IPA is an homage to perhaps the most sought-after beer in America, a legendary IIPA ranked #1 by the AHA for nine years straight.
Now you can craft the legend yourself with one of our most popular Double IPA recipe kits -- The Plinian Legacy.
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 ingredients, producing 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!
Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.
Yield: 5 Gallons

This kit is awesome. The directions were very specific, however the one thing I would recommend to any brewer is to always go with a full boil rather than adding in water later in the wort cooling phase. I started this with just shy of 6 gallons of water and sweated off about a gallon in the brew process. My ABV at the end was right in range at 8.6% and this DIPA had an awesome hop forward flavor profile and a pretty smooth finish overall considering the high ABV. I’ve since ordered it again. I recommend using Wyeast liquid ale 1056 and doing a starter. I also pitched two packs of yeast. There’s a ton of fermentable sugar in this one.
Northern Brewer keeps pushing me to review this brew, even though it's in the secondary still. I tasted it when transferring and now somewhat regret putting in both syringes of the bittering hops. It seems like one would have sufficed. We'll see. It may mellow out after bottling.
Just ordered my 3 rd kit today. Just started brewing. First kit was bottled, Second kit was kegged and this 3rd kit will ferment in a Conical. First was good second was outstanding and 3rd should even be better. I like this one a lot but afraid to try another kit for fear of being disappointed. Will be moving to all grain in the not to distant future
Can't get past this kit. Wanna try others but continue to purchase this one over and over and over and over... you get the point. I keg this and the reviews from friends and family are always no ka oi. So why brew another?
Great flavor. Everything went as expected.
