Default Pliny the elder extract recipe?

Not to take anything away from Austin homebrew but I want to do their kit but with the current price and shipping I'd prefer to give my local hbs the business. So that being said does anyone have the recipe from them for extract and would be willing to post it or pm me it?? Again If this is not kosher just let me know.

The grain bill is really simple:

84% 2-row
6.6 % cara-pils
2 % C40
7.4% dextrose

none of the specialty grains need to be mashed so you could just steep them. Check out the recipe floating around here for the hop bill and you are set to go.

So hop bill ok no problem but are you saying I can just steep xamount of grains and no dme/lme? Also you gave percentages for it but if I'm doing a 5 gal batch what amounts am I looking at?

No, you need to convert the 2-row to extract.

Morebeer sells it for $65. I have mine in the bottle as I type. Going to crack one open tonight. Bottled on 11-28-09. I tried one after 12 days but it wasn't finished carbing yet. Might be the cold in the house. Having a hard time getting my house over 70 deg.

Quickly calcing this, the rough estimate for grain breakout to hit the target 1.070 OG of Pliny would be:

10.5# 2-row (84%)
0.25# Crystal 40L (2%)
0.83# Carapils (6.6%)
0.93# Dextrose/Corn sugar (7.4%)

Coverting 2-row to extract is 75% for LME or 60 for DME, I believe.
Mess around with this free calculator to get the recipe how you want it.

You know if it's the same kit? I know alot of people here rave about ahs kit not sure I've heard much about morebeer.

Something to keep in mind though is that Pliny is mashed low (around 151F) for a thinner mouthfeel, but this also increases the ferment-ability of the sugars, so that with a 1.070 OG the beer will still result in a 8% abv. I think you should prob increase the extract to higher than that though since extract batches tend to finish higher. The target FG is for Pliny 1.010, which you will never get to using extract. My $0.02.

The actual recipe calls for 12.5 ounces of hops. I think the AHS kit uses even more than that. How many ounces of hops did the Morebeer kit use?

Wouldn't you go the other way?
Go with a slightly lower SG, so you get closer to the proper FG?
