No problem. The "crystal police" are always abound online, and while I've reeled back how much I use, I still like a fair bit of crystal in my bigger IPA's. I rarely go over 6% though.

Recipe sounds good though!

Unfortunately, there is NO place for cheap/reliable bags.
This is where I get mine.
Probably the best price on the web....nice flat rate shipping too.
Use these bags for everything.

Curious if anyone else has used these yet? I have 1/2lb in pellets coming. Any thoughts on pairings? The guy from farmhouse said they were stinking up his whole shop! I am starting my first ever 5 gallon batch (mini mash) when i receive my hops and will have these and some citra/amarillo/simcoe/falconers flight to play with. I ordered an IPA ingredient kit but am thinking about swapping hops. (I believe it was a magnum/cluster/FF hop pack) I want my first batch to be a good one!

i dry-hopped 6 gal of IPA with 5 oz of mosaic pellets bought from Farmhousebrewingsupply. smell was really nice but not overpowering - could have been because they were frozen. the pellets were really hard and dense as compared to every other frozen pellet i've used. they mostly sank when added to the carboy. some eventually floated to the surface, but well over half of the total hop matter stayed at the bottom, over the yeast cake. after a day i swirled the carboy to kick up the hops and ensure better contact with the beer.

beer was flavored with simcoe, cascade and just a touch of citra (bittered with columbus, not that it matters). i would have used mosaic in the boil but i hadn't received it yet. bottling on saturday.

I'm gonna wait to get some until I try a local breweries try with them.

Doing a Red Rye with ALL Mosaic in it, all the way through.

Sounds promising though.

I had these in Russian River's Happy Hops. Tremendous beer. I am making a blondeish ale with Mosaics I got from freshops (in conjunction with a little Columbus) to try and get a taste for it again. Excitement level is high.

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.
a lot of these patented hops are quite expensive, so what i'm doing is a bunch of single hop, single gallon IPAs. 1oz is enough for a .75gal batch at 50 IBU + dry hops. it does require quite a few pots, burners and former apple juice jugs, but it makes for a lot of fun and variety.

Picked up an ounce of Mosaic today at Rebel. Thinking of just doing a normal one gallon SMaSH with it, maybe a little carapils also.

Even more excited to try Pacific Jade (NZ) though.

OK. Final verdict on this thing is...

Loads of Melon and Berries. My IPA tastes like a Snapple IPA.

I was getting a lot more complexity in the fermenter. But after 6 weeks from grain to glass, the melonberry fruitiness is taking charge.

I may chill on these hops until summer and brew some lighter fare with them. Or possibly pair them with a more aggressive hop to get some complexity.

But yeah... Snapple Kiwi-Mellon-Berry IPA is my overall impression.
