The Plinian Legacy Double IPA All Grain 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

insane amount of hops, great end result!
Great all gain beer kit! It turned out great and I would order it again! Is it exactly like Pliny? Probably not, but is it a really good classic West Coast IPA in the Pliny style? Yes. I have had a Pliny many times and love it. I did not have one available to do the side by side, but like I said this makes very good beer. I used the dry yeast because I ordered in Aug and I would prefer to use the liquid yeast but it turned out great. I like that you can order the all grain kits from NB and they come with everything you need. I will be ordering this one again.
Also if anyone has issues with results, they may want to look at their homebrewing process vs the recipe 😜
First time using a hop rocket, made a big difference in flavor and mouthfeel. Also I noticed a significant fresher flavor as for the first time I was able to keg 2.5 gallons versus 2.5 bottles (which will be ready in a couple of weeks). I’ve brewed this beer many times and now believe the difference in the hop rocket is significant. Get one it makes a very good IPA into a cleaner fresher tasting experience.
I've done this recipe 8 times over the years. Great product. close enough to the real thing but great even in ints own right.
I've made this recipe 4x. Twice with extract and twice All Grain. Nailed the numbers and flavor profile on all four, and pals raved over it. This batch, all grain, the Hopshot was really thick and never completely dissolved. After the boil, cooling, and transfer to Anvil for ferment, here were small black globules in my Robobrew. After ferment and kegging, the beer was more bitter and less fruity. Pix available upon request.
