Default Mosarillo IPA

So we just brewed this one a couple weeks ago. We are on our 10th AG batch now and have seen significant improvement, especially in the last two.

We did 1.25 ounce of Mosaic at 60 and 1 ounce of Amarillo at 10.

We dry hopped 2.75 ounces of Mosaic and 3 ounces of Amarillo for 7 days. Lets just say the carboy smelled heavenly when we went to bottle.

Anyone have any thoughts on this recipe?

We mashed at 154 for 60 minutes and batch sparged.

Thanks!

Well I think those two hops are a wonderful combo, I also used Mosaic for bittering in my first and only brew so far, and added amarillo at 30. Regretfully didnt add a late hop addition but I used citra for dry hopping.

I love the aroma of both hops! How did your recipe evolve over the ten batches? And also a full recipe would be good

Well I suppose the grain bill would have been some help huh?


13 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)
1 lbs Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM)

1.25 oz Mosaic [12.50 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 4 54.3 IBUs
0.25 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 mins) Fining 5
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [8.40 %] - Boil 10.0 min Hop 6 10.6 IBUs

California Ale (White Labs #WLP001)

As for what our last 10 recipes we have made different variations of the same style but haven't made the same brew more than twice. We have been really exploring different hop combinations to see what they add to the finished product. We use pretty much the same grain bill in all the recipes as we want the hops to shine so we have been keeping it simple. A few brews ago we made a red ipa which used quite a different grain bill and came out very nice as well. The biggest problem we have had so far that we were able to fix in the last two has been how efficient the yeast is. We have had our FG's around 1.002 every time (last two were 1.010 and 1.016) which ends up with such a light beer there wasn't much to it. We are going to be using WLP051 this weekend so we should see more body to our beer.

We are brewing again this weekend and are going to be using Nelson and Citra to hopefully brew a successful hoppy pale ale around 5.5-6%.

Cheers!

I too have thought Mosaic and Amarillo would make a nice pairing but haven't tried it as of yet.

Regarding your recipe, for my taste, I would cut down on your Crystal a bit and bump up your IBUs as 65 seems a little low for an IPA with that OG. I would also try a different high alpha hop for your bittering charge (warrior, columbus, magnum etc) and save the Mosaic for your late additions.

I would probably cut down a little on your dry hops and use those for more late additions (5, 1, 0) and possibly some whirlpool additions. This will give boost your IBUs a bit and still give you the intense aroma you are looking for.

Also, if you are looking for more body try mashing at a higher temp (156-158).

Thanks for sharing and good luck!

So we had a release of this last Friday and wow was it good. It was easily the best beer we've made and actually have received orders from 3 people for a case each (first time we've been asked this)...so others seemed to enjoy as well.

We too thought the dry hops could be a little to much but it all seemed to work out. The Amarillo/Mosaic combo worked very well. We also really dug the bitterness the Mosaic added.

Thanks for the insight on adding some later addition hops, we are brewing an Aussie recipe this weekend and we are going to hop burst so that should be an interesting one.

Cheers!
