This week I am going to brew an easy drinking summer blonde ale that I've brewed before but I want to sub the 2 late cascade additions (20 and 5min) with mosaic (which I've never used before). Question is, since mosaic alphas are about twice cascades, and I want to keep same IBUs, Do I:
1. Cut both mosaic additions to 0.12oz and keep all else the same, or
2. Keep mosaic additions same as cascades 0.25oz, and decrease the 60min centennial to keep the same IBU?
I hear mosaic is quite strong, but I don't know if 0.12oz x 2 is enough to contribute any significant taste.
Below is the recipe for reference.
