Amazing beer!

by jheidster

I made this recipe after having an awesome single hop Mosaic from a Half Moon Bay brewing. I didn't go with the single hop but have to say, this beer turned out amazing! I highly recommend brewing it!

by Petedadink

Fermented cool (62/66) this recipe is a very clean enjoyable APA . Mosaic adds a nice twist and the base beer allows for hop changes on future recipes

Nice recipe

by mxpx5678

I really enjoyed this recipe, was a nice pale ale with a great new hop!

Great beer!!

by Mediocrebrewer

Really enjoyed this beer. Was a great cloud pleaser among our friends. One thing to consider is the hop aroma drops out quickly. Just like any hoppy beer drink while it's fresh. At the 6 month mark the aroma had disappeared. Still taste great tho! Will brew again. Maybe add some hops into the keg

Great Beer with a little modification on my part

by hipHopopotamus

I scaled this to a 11 G batch and used (0.75 oz CTZ + 1 Warrior) at 60 and 1 Mosaic at 10 min. The hops sub was just what I had on hand. The CTZ does come through and compliments the the fruity Mosaic and floral cascade.

good beer

by BrianWalker

This was my first attempt at dry hoping, it was really good. reminded me of the Alaskan Brew co. beer Free Ride. It was a little bitter for my taste at first. the beer mellowed out after a month of conditioning in my kegs. dry hopping was spot on for aroma and flavor. if you need to rush it, reduce Magnum hops by about 1/5 to 1/4 so I don't need to wait so long for the bitterness to mellow out, unless you like a beer that's a little bitter from the Magnum hops. Just a heads up, if you scale this beer to 10 gallons. the program miscalculated my mash-tun size and I had a little bit of an overflow issue because of it. The estimated mash out temps calculation were off as well, by about 5 degrees. this is the first time the program has let me down when scaling a recipe. because of the more fermentables, the FG of the my beer was a little off (FG 1.002) but still tasted great.

Honey as addition

by spike

Hi all, I'm pretty new in brewing and I wanted to try this recipe with a bit of Acacia honey in it along with orange peel and coriander.
If I put for example 1lbs of honey, wont me beer be too strong? maybe lower the amount of grain? or maybe mash it in a lower temp?

Spike Honey as addition?

by Forge

Why not try all 3 of your Acacia honey suggestions using smaller brew lengths and post the results here.

Or use a proper tried and tested honey ale recipe or braggot to see where you want this brew to end up.
