Can you mash hop and FWH with pellets and get the same effect with the same quantity?

I use a constant recirculating full volume mash and get around 65% efficiency every time. Be aware of hop loss, I started with 8 gallons pre boil.

7 lbs two row (American)
6 lbs Pilsner
10 oz Carapils
10 oz Crystal 60
1 tsp Gypsum


1.0 oz Amarillo Mash hop (Whole)
1.0 oz Columbus 14%AA 90 min FWH (Whole)
1.0 oz Columbus 20 minutes (Whole)
1.0 oz Simco 14%AA 20 minutes (Whole)
1.5 oz Simco 14%AA 1 minute (Whole)
1.0 oz Galaxy 14.1%AA 1 minute (Pellet)
1.0 oz Chinook 14.0%AA 1 minute (Pellet)
12 oz Corn sugar

1.0 oz each (Galaxy, Columbus, Simco for 5 days)

I do a 20 minute whirlpool then turn on the immersion chiller. I was an idiot and ran this thing into a carboy and had a rather hard time shoving 3.oz of dry hop down the neck.
big flavour good abv.

I made the Origional pliny version (almost) except it turned out in the same abv range as yours which I considered mine a Pliny Extra pale ale or I guess what would be just be considered ipa rather than a double. Turned out really awesome though. I went with 2 row,Pale, equal: crystal 20,40,60 and subbed a little oats and biscuit for the carapils. One of my best beers. I just wish I wouldnt be so far off with doing clones all the time by having to substitute ingredients usually every time. Either way it was one beer that could not go wrong.

Ha ha, I learned that the hard way too. If I'm gonna use a significant amount of dry hops in something, a bucket makes it so much easier. Cramming things through the carboy neck is such a PITA.

Would you be able to convert this to extract plus specialty grains?

Im sure its possible I just wouldn't be the best person to convert it for you. I have brewed in along time and its been probably 2 years since I've done an extract.

No worries I'm sure with a bit of digging I can figure it out. I so full boil extract batches so I just need to convert the grains to extract plus specialty grains
