I brewed one of these up for big brew day on the 1st. It's bubbling happily away right now. I'll be sure to post when it is finished.
I ended up using the Pliny Pack with the following grain bill:
12 lbs 2-row Malt
.6 lb CaraPils
.6 Crystal 60
.75 corn sugar

My OG was right on at 1.070

According to Beertools it was at 75%. This is just my 3rd AG so I was quite pleased.

Ran mine through the CB20 for BBD as well. Actually used only half the Pliny Pack for a 3.5 gal batch.

8lb two-row
.5lb corn sugar
.37lb carapils
.37lb C-40

60 min mash @ 154, 90 min boil. Got 1.072 OG and 75% efficiency.

I get 75% also, I do the hybrid batch sparge. Batch sparge with half the water, run-off while adding more water. I put a piece of aluminum foil w/holes in it on top of the mash to prevent channeling.

Bleu,
How did your color look? Just wondering since you used extract. Did you do the extract late method?

Thanks for the correction! I listened to the interview with Vinnie Cirluzo on the BN over the week; he says that the commercial addition at 90 minutes is "generic hop extract." Originally, he said, it used to be CTZ (Columbus, Tomahawk, Zeus,) but he can't get that anymore.

I also brewed with extract, using this recipe for my grain bill. I added the sugar at the beginning of the boil (as in the commercial example) but waited to add the extract until the last 15 minutes.

The color coming out of the kettle was a medium dark amber. Next time I might try an extra light extract, or use a lower L crystal.

I pitched from a starter, and the lid blew off my fermenter after about eight hours. It was only uncovered for about ten minutes before I got to it, and the krausen was going like CRAZY, so I'm confident that the yeast will defeat any possibility of infection.

The temperature has been kept at a steady 68*F.

I'm going to add my first dry hop addition on Friday, when I expect active fermentation to be complete.

My color is similar to pericles. I would call it a reddish amber. Hindsight I wish I wouldve done the late addition instead of at the beginning. Im with Pericles though, next time will try extra light and see if that can bring it down some in color.

Side note: Is it necessary to do two dry hop sessions, or can they be combined to one?

Why wouldn't you? You're dry-hopping for 2 weeks anyway, how difficult is it to add the last pack with 5 days to go?

To get that massive Pliny fresh hop aroma, I'd say yes, the 2nd one is a must.
