This looks like a good spring time beer.

A request for a double extra confirmation on the dry hops.

Total amount of dry hops is 3.75 oz

1.25 oz for 7-ish days; pull it and another
1.25 oz for 7-ish days; pull it and another
1.25 oz for 7-ish days.

and NOT 3.75 oz each time (which would be a total of 11.25).

Can someone please confirm? The way I read the original post is 3.75 oz each time. But, there was an exchange above stating that the total was 3.75.

Thank you.

Yeah the OP is worded badly. I bet it's 3.75 oz total. It says 2 weeks each btw.

edit: nevermind it looks like it is 11 oz dryhop. and pull them each time. sounds pretty sick.

You drop hop with 11 oz, which is the standard Pliny home brew clone recipe amount for 5 gallons. I do think 2 weeks for each addition is a bit long- personally I'd do 2 additions of ~4 oz or so (equal amount of the three hops) for 7-10 days each, then dry hop in the keg with the remainder and drink it fresh.

How were these kits? what was included if you dont mind sharing.

I went to the Farmhouse website and there is no explanation of what is included. When I clicked "contact us" there is an error as if the email provided doesnt exist.

I also PM'd Steelers77 yesterday with no response.

Im not willing to put faith in someone that just says "this kit includes all of the hops you need" and doesnt even list out what is included, the AA% etc.

Seems a little fishy since some people are talking about how much the hops for this recipe alone cost $30 and this hop pack is offered for $15 and they have an entire "kit" supposedly grain and all for $30 something.

I am planning on tackling a version of a PTE clone this weekend and I just had a quick question regarding Dude's recipe from the first post on this thread. In the OP, Dude states, "Recipe copied exactly according to Vinnie Cilurzo (Russian River Brewing Company Owner/Brewmaster) handout distributed at 2005 National Homebrew Conference."

I have come across a PTE clone recipe that also seems to come from Vinnie and has a different hop profile. The link to the recipe is found here:

Homebrewing Pliny The Elder

I'm guessing this is a more up to date version of Dude's recipe from 2005 seeing that they list Centennial, CTZ and Simcoe hops just like the recipe in the link above?

However, when I was reading on Russian River's website, they listed Amarillo hops as well. Also, I did come across another recipe where the guy added about a half oz of Amarillo to both of his dry hop additions and his grain bill was almost identical to the recipe I have linked above. I discovered the Amarillo thing after I had ordered my ingredients, but as luck would have it, I just happened to have 2 oz of it sitting in my freezer! So, I'm going to go ahead and give it a try!

I have also read that Vinnie likes to change up the recipe for PTE and I was just wondering if anyone has tried the recipe I linked above? I am going to go ahead and attempt the recipe I linked above and see how it turns out as the guy that listed the other recipe I found referencing using Amarillo said his clone turned out to be about 98% accurate. Being in Ohio, I've never had the real PTE, so I'm hoping this turns out good even though I will have nothing to compare it to...

I've done the handout recipe with hop variations several times. It's rumored that Vinnie has changed the hops around, notably Amarillo. IMHO, as long as the Simcoe, CTZ are there in approximate proportions and timing, you can mess around with other "C" hops and not tell much difference. Amarillo for taste and/or aroma additions is nice. I might be careful with Citra, as it can dominate if heavy handed. Cascade, or course, is very similar to Centennial, and Chinook can spice it up a touch.

I love light, dry, high alcohol bases like Pliny has for delivering the "hop candy" effect. Experiment with the hops and you'll almost always have a great IIPA.

In terms of hitting the recipe exactly, I couldn't tell the difference from a local place that had it on tap vs. mine, except my aromatics were better (I dry hop in the keg with a little less than the recipe calls for). Didn't ask how old their keg was.

It's been ages since I've made this! I think I'll make a 10 gallon batch of this tomorrow, as it sounds so good right now to me!

Made a Topper clone that's almost gone, so had to make this just a few days ago. Primary fermentation is almost done, going to dry hop soon. I made some changes though. Rounded up some hop amounts so used a solid pound overall. My HBS was also out of Maris Otter, so I used regular 2-Row and Golden Naked Oats for some extra body and what not. I may also simplify the dry hop and do all 3 at once, but haven't decided yet...is there really any extra bonus in a month and a half long dry hop, 2 weeks each variety? I was thinking just 2-3 weeks with all 3 at once.

Got a new blow off tube. Used to have one that stuck down inside my vaporlock. New one fits on the outside of the inner stem. Unfortunately the whole damn thing blew off (vapor lock and all) on the 2-3rd day of fermentation. Didn't lose much beer, just a ton of hops on the ceiling and about 15min where my beer didn't have a lid. Not too worried but I learned that a pound of hops in 5gal is...****ing awesome. Can't wait til it's drinkable.
