  • When dry hopping take measures to protect the brew from hop particals. Where brewers cannot cold crash prior to bottling or kegging we suggest using a hop sock.
  • When bottling best practise is to rack off into a bottling bucket using a syphon.
  • We recomend bottle conditioning for a minimum of four weeks before drinking. Allowing 8-12 weeks to mature will improve the flavour profile of the final product.

Tell Me About The Hops In This Recipe:

Released in 2012, the Mosaic hop is the new age daughter of the bitter, earthy hop Simcoe and is noted for its blueberry or mixed berry tones but is regarded as being a complex hops. Other flavours and aromas commonly associated with this hop are citrus, herbal, floral and grassy tones.

The Galaxy hop, regarded as Australia’s Citra brings us back to the Pacific (and the little hint of NZ that we will claim) and brings us Citrus notes backed by tropical fruit notes including passionfruit, peach and citrus.

The Mosaic and Galaxy are regarded as working exceptionally well together and will bring a depth to the hop character of the brew.
