I picked up some Juniper berries the other day and made a tea for one glass and I think that my next batch is going to have a half ounce or so thrown in. The flavors work really well together.

I brewed a Rye pale ale this weekend, its a modified Sierra nevada pale ale recipe. I was blown back by the Mosaic's aroma out the bag, so I am trying to conserve it by only utilizing it in the whirlpool.

10% rye 5% cristal 10L 5% carapils 80% two row
1oz Magnum -60min
1oz Perle -60min

1oz Nelson -Whirlpool (15min)
1oz Mosaic -Whirlpool (15min)

1oz Centennial in hop back

1oz-Chinook Dry hop
2oz Cascade Dry hop

11 gallon batch @ 1.055OG with a projected IBU of 52.

The wort tasted quite good, the spice of the rye and Nelson hop should be interesting with the mellon aroma I was getting from the Mosaic, and the citrus from the 3C's. I'll start the dry hop Wednesday, and hopefully get a good taste on friday. should be ready to keg next Wed.

Im very intrigued by this hop.

Bsquared, your use of chinook is interesting... i wouldn't have used it since it's more of a spicy & dank hop, IMO; while everything else in your recipe is more on the fruity side.

should be a very complex beer!

Sweetcell, Yes I see your point about Chinook, but I had a pale ale from Societe brewing here in SD that was all Chinook, the 10/19 Obrien's anniversary ale, and it really did not have that dank spicy character that you ,and I, would expect from Chinook. I think using it as a dry hop will give me a similar flavor as the 10/19 ale.

I'm very interested in how it will come out, hopefully it will be good, I have 10 gallons of it!

I'm brewing an IPA with Mosaic and Falconer's Flight both for the first time this weekend, here's the recipe:

60 min mash @ 150F
60 min boil

14# Maris Otter
.625# Victory
.625# Cara40

White Labs 002 English

2oz Magnum @ 60 min
1oz Mosaic @ 0 min
1oz Falconer @ 0 min
1oz Mosaic & 1oz Falconer dry hop

-Any critiques or opinions?
-Should I move any of the Mosaic or Falconer to FWH?
-Instead of mixing, should I do all Falconer at 0 and all Mosaic dry hop or visa versa?

Thanks for the help!

Being that mosaic is the product of nugget and simcoe I can only asdume that it would be very clean and smooth as a FWH. Question is, do you want yo squander that glorious hop aroma and flavor with a long boil? I would however recommended doing a steep (around 180F) instead of a 0 minute to really help keep the oils intact or doing half oz @ 0 and half oz steep with both varieties. The DH and bitter charge look good as does the grist.

I'm racking a Zombie-Dust-like IPA to keg tomorrow that was dry hopped with 3oz of Mosaic. I definitely get a big berry aroma from it. I can see where they get the blueberry descriptor from.

I've got pretty high hopes for this hop. It smells really nice so far. We'll know more in a week or so.

I appreciate the advice. I've never thought of doing a steep, but it makes more sense than a 0 minute especially since I don't own a wort chiller and it'll take me ~35 minutes to get to pitching temps in the ice bath.

One thing you might want to try if this is the case, use your chiller to get you down to 170 and then stop chilling, then add the mosaic hops. and let it steep at 170 or so for 5-10 min before continuing your chilling process.

Here is a whole thread about people discussing this technique

Update on the all mosaic pale ale. 8oz of mosaic late additions in a 5 gallon batch, 2.5 of that in dry hop. These were the whole hops from fresh hops.

Really grassy/vegital until I pulled the dry hops from the keg. After that its slowly been getting better over the past 2 weeks.

Mosaic reminds me a lot of NZ hops. Reminds me of watermelon right out of the tap. As it warms its all rhubarb. The aroma actually gets better / more intense as it warms and sits for awhile. And it lasts forever. About 30 min in the glass and I still have a strong hop aroma.

Overall great hop. Worth trying and paying a bit extra in my opinion. It will be interesting to see people try different combos with this one.
