Simply Awesome

by bmesnard

I haven't been able to snag a bottle of Pliny the Elder yet, but this recipe produced a fantastic brew. Went with Safale 05 instead of WLP001 just because I had it. This is now on my permanent must have list. Thanks!

very tasty

by OwlPower

I made this beer and it turned out great. Popular with friends too. I did not use corn sugar, but instead put in about 2 lb of flaked maize. I also used wyeast California ale.

It is bitter and hoppy, but also plenty of malt there to level things out. I went primary for one week and then secondary for two weeks, with just one ounce of simcoe, centennial, and Columbus for 14 days for the dry hop. After bottling this was drinkable after a week or so, but really tasted best after 3+ weeks in the bottle.

Fruity hopgasm

by scaredandprofane

I thought it might taste too 'pineconey' - but its deliciously balanced with an amazingly fruity aroma, then a battle between the malts and hops ending in a sweet embrace inside my belly. Ended up using S-05.
