Recipe calls for all citra hops for dry hopping.
I have a leftover oz of Mosaic from a previous batch. Thinking of throwing the mosaic in with the citra for a total of 3oz in a 5 gal batch for 10 days or so.
Any thoughts on a positive or negative result of this addition?

I limit my dry hopping time to a week, but many go 10-14 days no problem. Over 2 weeks reportedly can yield you grassy flavors. I see no problem at all with your dry hopping addition combo.

They pair great. Although 10 days is too long for my taste. I usually go for 4-5 days.

Why a shorter schedule? Worried about losing the hop flavors? More than 5 days is pointless? Or are you just impatient? :)

Good info though! Much appreciated

FWIW I dry hopped a Citra pale ale with 1 oz of Citra for 5 days and it was barely noticeable in the finished product. 3 oz for 5 days seems at least a reasonable starting point.
