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

Pretty good beer little on the sweet side but will have no problems getting them all drank
Hoppy, well balanced brew that takes guests by surprise with the high ABV. Cheers!
excellent, full bodied stout
The outrageous amount of hops had me worried when I brewed my Plinian Legacy. I had a hard time transferring the wort from my brew kettle to my fermenter due to all the hops. When I dumped the trub out of my conical fermenter at 2 weeks, I had to use a spatula to dig it out it was so thick. Then dry-hopping adding even more hops and in the end it was a lot cloudier than I wanted. Since I don't have the right gear to cold crash yet, I transferred it to a bottling bucket 24 hours before bottling and put it in my refrigerator. When I bottled, it was a lot clearer than expected. I also took a taste and it was extremely promising! I can't wait to try it in a few weeks when it's carbonated!
Finally got a chance to taste it yesterday. Doesn’t taste much like Pliney the elder but it is a nice tasty crisp beer. I ended up with about 8.66% alcohol. Color is a darker golden. I added about twice The amount of corn sugar necessary and used all of the hops provided. I still believe it has to mature more but it’s absolutely tasty the way it is after six weeks.
