    Instead of attending the National Homebrew Conference, I will be backpack camping with my son's

    Do you have any substitution recommendations if I can't find Mosaic?Truthfully, there is such a
    small amount of Mosaic in there, especially when compared with the later additions of Citra,
    that I'm no...

    This is a crisp summer ale that highlight the flavor of Citra hops. Finishes crisp without as
    much sweetness from the honey malt as expected. Perfect for stirring on the deck with the grill
    going and ...

    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 ...

    1 LB of caramel in this with the honey malt sounds like way too much. I'd drop the honey to 1/8
    of a lb. drop the caramel 10 to .5 lbs and add .5 lbs of carapils.I guess it depends on how
    much sweetne...
