Hello all just wanted to post about my pliney the elder clone I found this partial grain kit here: http://grains-n-beans.com/cart/pliny...ion-p-429.html
So far it is looking awesome.
I did a starter yeast with my new stir plate I found instructions for on here.
Pitched my yeast at 1800 last night and am thankful I decided to do a blow off tube instead of an air lock.
S.G. came in at 1.068 just shy of the projected 1.070
am excited for this one to be done!
I've never even tried the real pliney so wont have anything to compare it to but I'm sure it will be great!
Scotland on the boards here posted a recipe on his blog that he based off of info from Vinnie and other sources. I used the recipe from BYO a few months ago and mostly followed Scotland's recipe about 2-3 weeks ago. I just kegged it today and the sample I pulled is going to be very close to the commercial version, just had some on NYE so it was fresh in my mind!
