Russian River Clone Recipe for Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig and Consecration
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.
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!
