After searching for how to get Pliny the elder (never had it and everybody raves about it) I stumbled on this thread. I love IPA's but my only big ones I have tried have been Hopslam and Sneaky Pete. Just spent a little over $70 for the ingredients and ready to brew this weekend. I bought the full amount of ingredients but only have a 6.5 gallon carboy. Was anyone able to go this route with a blow off tube or should I scale it back for a 5.5 or so?

Didn't think so. I forgot to scale it down when buying the ingredients. I'll figure it out.

if you plug the recipe into brewersfriend.com - you can use their scale function.

you might also consider the added wort loss for all those hops.

When I made this I put exactly 6 gallons in my 6.5 gal carboy. I had to use a blow-off tube for sure, my yeast starter went nuts within 6 hours. The beer taste wonderful and the hop heads who have tried it love it.

Things didn't go quite right Saturday night but I think it will still be amazing.

Going to brew this and pitch onto a US05 cake, because that is how I roll (I will have a very clean cake in 2 weeks). One question, I never used corn sugar (dextrose) in a beer before, do I add this in the 60min mash or during the boil? Any help is appreciated. Thanks for the awesome recipe BM

Looks awesome ... I think I'm going to try this with some pearl malt and a slightly different hop schedule.

Question ... Where did you get your water and did you add anything to it besides grain/hops?
