Zythos/Mosaic Amber Rye IPA

Post #1 by ECH » 3 years ago

First contribution to the recipes here, I know, an extract recipe, but I am still happy with the process and the results from what I am doing so far, so why mess with a good thing.

Up until this point, I have only been brewing the pre-made extract kits from places like OBK, and one from the US, maybe changing up a hop, or using a different yeast then intended for the brew, liquid instead of dry, etc, etc. But this one was the first I made up myself. I did seek some minor help from Grimross, wanting to know what percentage of Rye he used in his, and he was nice enough to get back to me on that.

So, here it is:

5 Gal Batch

Steeping grains

2lbs Rye Malt
1lb Crystal 60

Malt

6lbs of Gold LME
3lbs of Amber LME

Hops

1oz of Zythos @60min
1oz of Zythos @15min
1oz of Mosaic @5min
1oz of Mosaic @Flameout
1oz of Zythos @Flameout

2oz of Mosaic - Dryhop 7days
1oz of Zythos - Dryhop 7days

WLP001 California Yeast

OG 1.075 (Beer Smith estimated 1.063), so if it ferments out fully, it is going to be a little higher on the ABV then estimated (est. 6.3%) so if my OG reading was correct, then it is going to push it to 8.6%

Est. IBUs, 65.6


I was very surprised by the smell of the Mosaic hop pellets, kind of had a light Simcoe vibe to it with the cat pee smell, but lots of tropical as well, but now reading up on Mosaic a bit more, it is a first daughter of Simcoe, so the familiar Simcoe smell makes sense.

Now the hard part....the waiting game!!!

I love Mosaic, definitely one of my favorite hops for aroma in IPA or Pale ales.

Smelled great fermenting. Gotta get the other IPA out of secondary and bottled so I can use the dry hopper in this one!
