Drink it as soon as it's ready. I'm about to kick my keg and the aroma is definitely lessening quite a bit. The bite remains, however.

Oh wow, I never knew russian river brewing company distributed their product so widely.

I always thought they were just a local watering hole with awesome pizza.

Just a local watering hole that makes 8 of the top 100 beers in the world.

By the list all those top 100 beers average 8 or 9%...

but I guess that is a whole other thread!

Took me a while to get to it, but I tapped my 2nd batch of AHS Pliny tonight. I mashed this one a good bit hotter and man, what a difference. Not too dry like the last one, this one's perfect. Even with a couple months aging, it's still a massive hop bomb too. Superb recipe.

You mashed this one at 156 right? My kit is comming Monday . I was going to mash at 152, but you say 156 is the magic number? What was your FG? Also which yeast did you use?

FG was 1.012, mashed at 156. S-05 yeast. Actually I poured the 2nd batch right on top of the 1st batches yeast cake.

Ah Ok. I ended up getting the WLP001 Yeast. I guess I will find out how far it will go with higher mash temps. I know I've gotten the WLP001 down low when I mash at 149-150. I think I gotten a blonde ale from 1.036 to 1.004. So mashing a little higher will be good for this one I think. I cannot get ahold of the real PTE, so I am flying blind on this one.

S-05 is the dry version of 001 so you should get similar attenuation, assuming a good pitch rate.

Perfect! Yeah I am going to get a 2000ml starter going. I think that should be plenty. Now if there was only a way to sample the real thing to see how close I got.
