Don't get all upset on me. We're easily sidetracked. BTW, I got an airlock that stopped bubbling after 3 days. Should I bottle it? jk.

We got a while before finished product. I noticed everyone is dry hopping. Anyone interested in a dry hop vs hop burst swap? I'm brewing with mosaic this weekend. Probably 5 weeks away from being ready. I live in Mass.

i'm really curious about mosaic and would love to try it... but at $29.60 a pound the price is scaring me.

if i were to get 5 oz, the amount i typically use in a SMaSH, it's $9.25 + $6.30 shipping = $15.55. dat sh*t cray.

Tasting my first sips from the fermenter right now and the Fresh Hops description is dead on with this "earthy, grassy, herbal, citrus, cedar, tropical, spice and stone fruit notes adding to the pine-based pungency"

This hop is crazy complex and Mosaic is a perfectly suited name.

People calling it Simcoe without the cattiness are off... there is some cattiness to it. But not over powering and not at all bad.

The cedar note really stands out too...and I like it more than I would have guessed.

I pick up a lot of fruit...stone and tropical.

It is spicy, woody and fruity. A great IPA hop. Really complex. I can't imagine blending it with another. Although it is short on citrus, so I guess if you felt the need to add some citrus notes with one Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial and or a touch of Citra (I'd not go overboard against the Mosaic tho).

Here is my recipe. Tasted a FG sample at 1.016 and dry hopped with 1 oz Mosaic.

Cheers!

13.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 87.10 %
1.00 lb Caramel Malt - 60L (Briess) (60.0 SRM) Grain 6.45 %
0.50 lb Caramel Malt - 120L (Briess) (120.0 SRM) Grain 3.23 %
0.50 lb Carapils (Briess) (1.5 SRM) Grain 3.23 %
1.00 oz Chinook [13.00 %] (60 min) Hops 44.0 IBU
1.00 oz Mosaic [11.30 %] (20 min) Hops 11.6 IBU
1.00 oz Mosaic [11.30 %] (15 min) Hops 9.2 IBU
1.00 oz Mosaic [11.30 %] (1 min) Hops 5.7 IBU
1 Pkgs Dry English Ale (White Labs #WLP007) [Starter 2000 ml]

Just ordered a lb of this to try out. I like the sounds of it! Debating on making this an IPA or Mosaic/Centennial Blonde Ale...or both. Probably both.

That does sound good. Reading your post, before I saw the recipe you used, I said.. "Man, I'm thinking Chinook to bitter, Mosaic to flavor and aroma, maybe a flame out addition of Amarillo or Cascade, and dry hop it with Mosaic and Amarillo/Citra if it needed more citrus.

I just dry hopped a double IPA with 1.5 ozs each of Mosaic and Simcoe. I will post some results in a few weeks. I like the aroma of the hop as a put it in the fermenter.

I have a little over a case of Mosiac IPA carbing up right now - 10 [long] days to go. I dry hopped it at almost an ounce per gallon. The samples have been very promising - tropical fruit (pineapple maybe?) and citrus. Been trying to hold my tongue until the beer is fully carbed and conditioned.

I took a gravity reading after 4 days in the fermentor of the IPA I used Mosaic in, it smelled and tasted great, definitely right on the description as joetothemoe said. If you're looking for something new and complex this is a great choice.

10# 2 Row
12 oz Carapils
8 oz Melanoidin
8 oz Dextrose
.75 oz Columbus (60)
3.5 oz Mosaic (5)
.5 oz Columbus (5)
3.5 oz Mosaic (0)
1.5 oz Mosaic (DH 14 days)
.75 oz Citra or Amarillo (haven't decided yet) (DH 14 days)
1.5 oz Mosaic (DH 19 days)
.75 oz Citra or Amarillo (DH 19 days)

s-04
OG 1.062
gravity 4 days later was 1.018
will probably get to around 1.014 or 1.012 after another week
I think the IBU's were around 70 (my notes are at home)
I'm definitely looking forward to the beer though I think it will be really good, I hope to find more of these hops around, I bought leaf from freshops.com and my LHBS just got some pellets in.
