    relevant Inbev is going to...

    Honestly, I think MBC just used obscene amounts of Mosaic in the dry hop. Just had some Mosaic
    IPA at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury VT and it reminded me a lot of the fragrance of Dinner.I
    have 4 oz Mo...

    To be honest I wouldn't know if it is Chico. I had harvested Conan before and it had a
    distinctive peach aroma - definitely not that. I was curious if Dinner's yeast imparted flavor
    characteristics so...

    I was asking myself the same question and ran into this old thread. a lot about yeast
    propagation. Even with a small amount of yeast, it appears that you could get about half the
