I'm curious to hear how the mosaic is. I've never even smelled them before, much less tried them in beer. (or cider) There's a local brewery in Athens, GA (Terrapin) that is making a single hop rye ale out of them. Looking forward to trying that one.

Any tasting/aroma notes on how it turned out?

I was more curious of how it worked in the cider

My LHBS doesn't have mosaic in stock. I'm going to the beer store today to see if I can find some mosaic beers to try.

Did you finish the comparison? How did it go?

What is a "Hops schedule"?

A hop schedule is just the timing schedule of when the hops go into the boil kettle.

~
1 oz UK Challenger @ 60 mins left in boil
1 oz UK East Kent Goldings @ 15 mins left in boil

Update: I enjoyed the hopped cider so much that I have three more gallons already bottled and carbonating in the living room as well as two more gallons dry hopping in carboys in my room... Did not quite use up the rest of my mosaic and cascade hops yet So I may make another batch of the two mixed.

Post script: I have one on open ounce of NZ Nelson Sauvin 12.5%...
The guy at the homebrew shop just handed it to me and said try this... He didn't even charge me. Has anyone ever use these hops and what did you think of them?

I'm will be transferring to the secondary in two days at which point I will dry hop a gallon with Saaz and another with Citra for a comparison. Sorry it's taking so long... I did a very long cold crash.
