DIREC­TIONS

Sin­gle in­fu­sion mash at 149°F (65°C), then rest for 40–60 min­utes. Re­cir­cu­late (vor­lauf) un­til run­nings are clear. Boil for 60 min­utes fol­low­ing the hops sched­ule. Pitch the yeast and fer­ment at 66°F (19°C) then al­low tem­per­a­ture to free rise to 70°F (21°C).

Move young beer off yeast once it reaches ter­mi­nal grav­ity and add dry hops. Crash af­ter 2 days and hold for about a week, then rack to keg or bot­tles and car­bon­ate by your pre­ferred method.

BREWER’S NOTES

Mo­saic is a won­der­ful hop that can con­tribute myr­iad fla­vors and aro­mas de­pend­ing on when it’s added. Dry hop­ping helps bring out its more trop­i­cal/ berry notes rather than its resinous/ her­bal qual­i­ties, which tend to come on the ear­lier you add it dur­ing boil.
