Citra would be very good, I think.

I just bought my first Mosaic hops-they smell amazing.I could pick up the Simcoe heritage in the aroma-but certainly not the same as Simcoe. I want to hear how this goes. I think either combo would be great.

Decided on Simcoe - thinking a 2:1 ratio of Mosaic to Simcoe, with additions at 15, 10, 5 and whirlpool/steep.

Brewing this weekend, will report back in 4-6 weeks...

I use .3 gallons water per pound of grain. Since the temperature of my grain changes (I keep in garage), I use similar calculators as shown by SilverZero. So with 13 lbs grain/.3 is 3.9 gallons water. Usually I heat to 170, keep some boiling and cold water handy and then just mix in the grains checking the temp as I go and add extra hot or cold water to hit my target. I am usually very close to 152-3 without using any extra hot/cold water.

Damn it Tim. Just cracked my first bottle brewed on 4/8. Subed nugget for bittering cause I only had an ounce of Simcoe, and added the other half ounce at flame out. It's good. Best beer I have made. Except due to wort loss with the hops this is my only bottle, as the rest are for my groomsmen next Friday. All this tasty goodness and I can't touch it.

Congrats on the pending nuptials! Glad you like the beer. Did you add Nugget or Simcoe at flame out?

Cheers,
Tim
