Bottled my 2nd batch of AHS Pliny last night. Finished at 1.012, so upping the mash temp may have done the trick...

I'll be adding my second dry hop addition tonight. The airlock smells awesome so I imagine the beer within smells even better.

Thanks to this thread I ordered the all grain kit on Tuesday and got it for about $50.

Thanks for the heads up! Can't wait to brew this bad MF'r.

My friend with whom I split my Pliny batch just sniffed the air lock for like 5 minutes

An benefactor who shall remain nameless just sent me a bottle of Pliny. Time for a side-by-side comparison.

I brewed this, too. I just kegged (secondary) and dry hopped it, and the house still smells a bit hoppy. Nice. Never had the real thing, not available in TX, but a freind in San Fran claimed he is sending me one. I've never put so much hops in the keg before, nor have I used pellets for dry hopping. woo hoo!

No, I'm fine, but thanks for your concern.

The real thing was outstanding. Mine was at least in the neighborhood, but a bit more bitter on the back end.

Glad to hear you're ok and the beer is what you expected (more or less.) Be careful though. Last time I bitter on the back end she slapped me.
