So I see AHB has a Pliny the Elder clone for $118. I had never heard of this beer and looked it up on Beer Advocate. It's one of the highest rated brews I've ever seen with 700 votes. A+

This is the first A+ clone I've ever seen by ANYBODY.

A anyone here ever tried the beer?

Have I ever tried the AHS clone? No. It is new to them. But, I have had the beer and have made a clone myself. It is an excellent beer, dry, bitter with a great hop aroma.

Pliney the Elder is probably the best beer I've tasted to date.

I have the ingredients on my wish list at AHS and will probably be one of my next brews (I'm just a bit apprehensive on the cost of all those hops!). I believe Vinnie from Russian River handed out the recipe at NHBC several years ago.

I drink a few pints of Pliny every month. It is always on tap at 3 or 4 places I go, so it is sort of a standby beer for me.

I almost got smacked by a bartender when I said, "Oh... I guess I'll have a Pliny."

It's a winner in my book. Surprisingly light in color for an IIPA.

I've a keg that is just about 3-4 weeks from being ready to drink.

It does take a butt load of hops though.

i just ordered the AG pliney the elder clone from AHB. i can't wait to see how close it is to the real thing, i can get it on tap and bottles in my area.

who here has brewed it from AHB? does it come with whole hops or pellets. with 17 oz of hops, how much preboil water did you start with to end up with 5 gallons of wort minus hop trub in the kettle or whole hop wort absortion?

any tips on making AHB version would be helpful.

thanks

I have this on tap right now, it's fantastic! I ended with 6 gallons, 10.16 pre-boil(90minute boil), it comes with pellets. You'll want to filter this out or you will lose a crap load of beer. I believe the boil uses 10 ozs, and the rest are dry hops.

I snagged the AHS mini-mash Pliny Clone when it was on sale for 1/2 off. It's damn good. I won't say my version was as good as Vinny's but SWMBO was VERY impressed and that just doesn't happen
