I racked my gallon of Mosaic IPA (it's really substantially less than a gallon) to my secondary and dry hopped with more of the eponymous hops.
I had to wait longer than I would have preferred to move out of primary because, silly me, I didn't have a suitable vessel to act as my secondary. My beer was in fermenting before I realized, “Hey, I need another one-gallon jug.” Somehow this didn't occur to me when I was fitting out my new miniscule brew house.
Therefore, I had to obtain another gallon jug. Quickly. My local home brew store was not open when I visited it – that was a fun trip with two kids on a blazing hot day. And my eventual internet purchase took a lot longer than I wish it had. In short, another argument for planning ahead and ensuring that you have everything you need prior to your brew day. I should really listen to my own advice.
This is not only my first one gallon batch, it is also my first single hop beer. I am really very curious to see how the Mosaic performs through all phases of this brew. Simply put, Mosaic is an incredibly appealing hop. I like its brightness of aroma and flavor and it has a decent amount of alpha acid (around 12%), which should make it a reasonably effective bittering hop. So it should bring a lot to this beer....
