I am about to brew a cucumber ale. I was going to use hallertu. I was thinking of trying mosaic. Do you think it would be over wheeling to the cucumber notes?

I don't have an answer for you on the hallertu vs mosaic, but I also want to brew a cucumber ale. When do you plan on adding the cucumber?

I grow cucumbers every year in the garden, make my own pickles, love a good cucumber salad, enjoy em in a vinegar wash ah la fresh pickles, and just eat em raw.

Cucumber beer I don't know about... sounds interesting and can't be any worse than some ideas out there! I too wanna hear the plan!

How much cucumber did you use, and how strong is the flavor? What kind of beer was it? Recipe?

I made a cumcumber mint saison with 3 large cukes chopped and racked into a secondary. The cucumber came through more than I couldve hoped. I didnt use much hops though
