Just ordered mosaic....any chance of your recipe please?
Sure. It's pretty simple but so juicy and tasty. I add 30g of Citra in with 60g of Mosaic at the dry hop just to give it some extra zing.
Last one came out at 5.5%
This is for a 23ltr batch
5kgs Pale malt (Crisp clear choice in mine)
250g Crystal low colour
Mash 60mins @ 68c
Post boil around 1052
17g Bravo @ 60mins
20g Mosaic @ 10mins
20g Mosaic @ 5mins
30g Mosaic @ 2mins
Ferment @ 19c US05 or similar
Dry hop after nine days with 60g Mosaic and 30g Citra.
I bottle mine after 13 days (it's always done) so I can brew and use the fridge on the 14th day.
Just having a pint in me local, after brewing zombie dust APA should come in at 6.5% using West Coast yeast
My crossmyloof order has arrived...so I now have the hops for a Tribute clone so we're off....
I also got some of their hog norsk yeast..."northern European ale yeast ...low ester ales with a clean palate... fermentation ideally 18-27.."so I'm trying this. Going to pitch at 25 and see what happens!
For today's brew I've used my new manifold in the tun and ditched the bag I usually use. Mash in seemed more thorough. I'm going with a foil topper on the grain bed and I've also added 77 degree water for the last ten minutes to bring it up a bit.
Sparge went well,no issues. The manifold is easy to clean...found a narrow valve brush in the shed which works a treat.Ig took no longer than rinsing out the grain bag I didn't use!
Yesterday was a long day. Brewed a massively hopped APA with chinook, mosaic and Amarillo, which will get a huge dry hop of all three at over 10g/L.
That was followed by a witbier. It’s my usual recipe but I decided to tweak it and add Mandarina Bavaria late in the boil, and lost the orange peel addition. Never used MB before and it was quite a big addition so I’m hoping the reported orange flavour comes through!
In my experience, @Clint , It will attenuate right down to 1005ish, leave an initial spicy note to the beer that eventually conditions out, and will clear well. Very neutral, didn't seem to mask a heavy EKG dry hop. But, boy, does it attenuate. After priming, I ended up with a beer that was nearly 7%!
Interesting ...it should compliment the Willamette.
Is it ok at the higher temp and does it finish any quicker?
Got this one on the go today!
All done! I got 23.5litres to fv at 1048...that puts my efficiency to 71.5%..nearly a 10% increase! Wort super clear and tastes great!
Couldn't decide what to pick up from the HBS today . Ended up with this little number
That's a good one! Similar to Brewdog Electric India.
Yes can't wait to try this one. The guy in the shop said it was good. And everything you needs the box. This time next year hopefully will be making my own like you guys
Just be patient with the fermentation as the Young's kits can take an extra week or so to hit fg.
Hi Andy did you get that at Leyland hbs
Will do Clint Cheers. I always tend to give them a bit longer just to be Safe :)
Hi Rod. No I had to nip to Bolton train station this afternoon. There's a HBS about 1.5 miles away so ended up calling in. It's called spitting feathers. Been once before when I was in the area as you do!
I use it sometimes it's on Tonge moor road
Would you recommend the Leyland HBS, since Brew2Bottle closed in Northwich I do not have a shop which is near. I've tried the Bolton one but wasn't impressed when I found out he wasn't exchanging CO2 and sold me out of date hops.
