Russian River Pliny the Elder Beer Kit
If you have never had the pleasure of trying Pliny the Elder, then trust me when I tell you that Pliny the Elder is perhaps the best example of a DIPA or Double India Pale Ale available for purchase. It has a malty body that is perfectly balanced with one of the nicest hop profiles I personally have ever tasted. Unfortunately Russian River does not produce enough of it. The good news is that you can brew it at home and MoreBeer has about the best kit around for it and it is sanctioned by Russian River Brewing.
They have a sale running on the Pliny the Elder extract beer kit today, but if you are an all grain brewer fear not, they have a Pliny the Elder All Grain version as well, it is just not on sale.
Russian River Brewing beers can be very difficult to get your hands on unless your live within close proximity to the brewery but now you can brew several of them at home. MoreBeer has worked with Russian River and has release homebrew recipe kits for Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig and Consecration; which are three of Russian Rivers best beers in my opinion. I have personally brewed the Pliny the Elder all grain home brewing kit and the Russian River Consecration homebrew kit and both turned out excellent. They offer all three of these home brewing ingredient kits in both all grain and extract.
Here are links to each of the kits:
Just wanted to let everyone know that MoreBeer is currently having a sale on their Pliny the Elder Extract Home Brewing Recipe Kit. It is a limited quantity offer and is for today only. It sells out each time they have one of these so act fast if you want one!
This is a fantastic Pliny the Elder clone kit. If you are like most of us and can not easily get Pliny where you live, then this is a great alternative.

Are you like most of the county or I should say world and can’t get your hands on a bottle or pint of Pliny the Elder, one of the worlds best Double IPA’s? Well don’t look so glum, you now have the ability to brew your own!
Thanks to MoreBeer, you can now purchase an authentic Russian River Pliny the Elder All Grain Brewing Recipe Kit or Pliny the Elder Extract Home Brewing Recipe Kit. Rest assured, this is not just some Pliny the Elder clone that they whipped up in the back of their warehouse. This is one of their exclusive BrewMaster Series Recipe Kit that comes directly from Vinnie Cilurzo, the owner \ brewer of the Russian River Brewing Company.
The recipe comes with all the ingredients that you need to brew a batch of Pliny the Elder, minus the yeast and they have a few options for you to choose from as far as that goes. I personally would recommend going with the Wyeast 1056 liquid yeast. Good luck and happy brewing!

Liquid Malt extract or LME is typically used in extract beer brewing, yeast starters, and in some cases, all grain brewing. To make liquid malt extract, the sugars from a brewing mash are transferred from a mash tun or lauter tun and dehydrated and reduced in a vacuum chamber. When the process is completed, the liquid malt extract is only 20% water. Typically, hops are not added to a malt extract.
