Anyone feel free to PM me and i'll send you a picture of the recipe straight out of the book
Jamil's is close, and really tasty, but I converted it to AG, so didn't do it as an extract. IME, to get a clone spot on, you need to tweak it a few times to fit your brew house. I thought as an AG, Jamil's recipe could've been a bit dryer, I'd assume more so out of the extract version. I've only attempted a PtE clone twice, and neither was spot on Pliny, although both were great IIPA's and the second was much closer to the real deal. I have a couple plans for the next go 'round, mayhap the third time will be the charm.
