Pliny Pack
 
So I've been thinking about putting together a Pliny pack for the community and would like to get a consenses on what recipe to use. I've been given a few but I want to run it by the community before I put one together. Lets discuss this and see what we come up with.

Here is a recipe that is based exactly on Vinnie's:

Thats one of the recipes I looked at, if thats the one people are using I will sell packs based on it.

I have brewed Jamil's Hop Hammer version of PTE but upped the hops a bit. Everyone who has sampled this beer has loved it. This is the hop schedule that I personally used:

2.0 OZ WARRIOR (90 MIN)
2.0 OZ CHINOOK (90 MIN)
1.0OZ SIMCOE (45 MIN)
1 OZ COLUMBUS (30 MIN)
2.25 OZ CENTENNIAL (FLAMEOUT)
1.0 OZ SIMCOE (FLAMEOUT)


3.25 OZ COLUMBUS (DRY HOP AFTER ROUGHLY 7 DAYS OR SO)
1.75 OZ CENTENNIAL (DRY HOP)
1.75 OZ SIMCOE (DRY HOP)

Vinnie's Zymurgy PTE
 
This is the hop schedule for the PTE recipe that Vinnie C gave in a recent issue of Zymurgy:

3.50 oz Columbus - 90 min
.75 oz Columbus - 45 min
1.0 oz Simcoe - 30 min
1.0 Oz Centennial - flameout
2.5 oz Simcoe - flameout
1.0 oz Columbus - 12 day dry hop
1.0 oz Centennial - 12 day dry hop
1.0 oz Simcoe - 12 day dry hop
.25 oz Columbus - 5 days before keggins
.25 Centennial - 5 days before kegging
.25 oz Simcoe - 5 days before kegging

I brewed this over the weekend so it is too early to tell how it compares to Jamil's version of PTE from Brewing Classic Styles. Montanaandy

I don't know of a recipe to suggest but I think this is a great idea and will be picking up the pliny pack when it is released.

Anyone have the AHS recipe?

Alright, here's what I came up with based on Vinnie recipe supplied by NinjaJoe. I will increase the Columbus 90min addition to 4/oz (because my Columbus AA is less that the recipe), and keep the rest the same. My Simcoe AA is .10 less that the recipe so it should be negligible. I think I will sell these for $12.25. Also I will package these according to addition, so you just add the whole pack at the appropriate time. What do you guys think.

Couple questions.

You state that your Columbus is less than that of the recipe. The recipe lists 13.90%, your hop thread has your pellet columbus listed at 14.2% and your leaf columbia listed at 16.6%. Is your pellet columbus no longer 14.2%?

Can we get a final hop #'s provided in the package? I came up with:

5.5 oz Columbus (6oz if you round up the 90min addition to 4oz)
2.25 oz Simcoe
2.25 oz Centennial

Total: 11 oz

That seem right?

With the pricing, is that $12.25 plus shipping or shipping included?

Thanks again! I know I'll be ordering this, and hopefully we can all agree on a couple more so that I can place an order for 2 or 3 of these "Hop Packs".

Mmmm, Gumbalhead, Two Hearted, Blind Pig, Hopslam...the options are endless!!!
