I just steeped the grains for about 20 minutes at 155.

Looks good to me. I love hoppy session beers. Did you do a full or partial boil?

Also, Australia is in their harvest season now, so hopefully we'll be getting a lot more galaxy hops soon.

I'm not an all grain guy, so maybe someone else here can answer this...I'd guess about 7-1/2 LBS of 2-row, but I'm not sure of the mash temps and all that data...

I believe its more like 6 1/2# of 2 row and since the recipe says this is a pretty crisp finish i would probably mash around 150-152. I had a question about the hop bill though, will post boil hops contribute to the bitterness? or do hops that are not boiled only give the beer/wort a smell and flavor of hops with absolutely no bitterness?

When you add flameout hops in Beersmith, it does add to the total IBUs for the beer, but very little. You're not going to get a significant increase in bitterness.

I did a partial boil with a late extract addition.

2 1/2 gallon boil, 1 1/2 lbs DME @ 45, 4 oz corn sugar @ 30, 3 lbs DME @ flameout.

I wouldn't write off the mosaic in this recipe (which looks great by the way). Just add it much later (it's awesome for flameout) or use it to dry hop. Super fruity and delicious. Nice pic - your beer looks great.

Could one just add more Mosaic? The grain bill just shows a 1/4 oz at 45 minutes. Maybe the low amount was why there was little to no bittering. What if you did a full ounce at 60 minutes?

I've been eyeing this recipe and was thinking about this for a all-grain version (changes in red).

1lb Crystal 10L
1/4lb Honey Malt
6 1/2 lbs of 2 row
1/4lb Corn Sugar
1 oz Mosaic (12.7%) @ 60
1/2oz Citra (14.1%) @ 10
1/2oz Citra (14.1%) @ 5
1oz Citra (14.1%) @ flameout
US-05

mash at 152F

I'm still new to all grain, so if that looks horrible......go easy. I've thought about just doing it as the OP did, but change the DME to 2 row. Nothing against extracts, but I just like trying to improve on my (what little I have) technique.

You could definitely do this. But personally I would use a neutral bittering hop and save the mosaic till later in the boil to get the full use of its flavor and aroma profile.
