Look at the subject =)
Anyone used these bad boys? I went and bought some random stuff
at my LHBS and the purveyor of the place told me that these were his new favorite.
Getting ready to do a brew and have 3 oz of em.
Just curious!

Just got 10oz from Freshops yesterday and considering using them in a small batch, all late Mosiac IPA. Curious what others think of them.

Same. The only real info I have found on them is this:

http://downeasybrewing.com/brew-scho...s/mosaic-hops/

The guy in the shop told me they were "kind of simcoe-esque" as well, but I'd love to hear from some people who have brewed with them.

Considering this recipe to brew hopefully some time over the next couple of days.

Note that this is extract and a 2-1/2 gallon batch. My Mosaic is 2012 leaf and 12.3%. Using 5 oz in 2.5 gallons should give a good idea of what Mosaic is all about.

Mosaic Semi-SMASH 2.5 gal:
3.5 lbs Briess Pilsen DME and 0.25 lbs Dextrose (1.065 OG in 2.5 gal)
0.5 oz Mosaic @ 30 min
0.75 oz Mosaic @ 15 min
0.75 oz Mosaic @ 10 min
0.75 oz Mosaic @ 5 min
0.75 oz Mosaic @ 0 min
1.5 oz Mosaic dry hop
Nottingham yeast
