Mosaic is pretty strong, where Mandarina is really good but not as strong. I would use about twice the amount of Mandarina as Mosaic. Sounds good!

perhaps 2/3 mandarina 1/3 mosaic. thinking of trying out the all vienna base with carared recipe.

I might go stronger on the Mandarina. 3 parts to 1 or even 4 parts to 1 if you want that Mandarin Orange character. There is an all MB APA on tap in my house, and it is not over powering, it used 7 oz. for 10 gallons, 3 oz were dry hops. It is really tasty, and the orange comes out nicely.

Agreed. Mosaic is pretty assertive. Really like the orange character of Mandarina. Really well suited to APA among others.

Mrs R says it would be a match for an American Wheat ale. I think she is right.

Yeah, aside from APA I thought a Gumball Head type American wheat too, as well as maybe a simple summery cream ale, witbier to accentuate the orange peel , and in a non style specific pale lager. Just looking for reasons to use it !

Yeah as it stands now, I have about 1/2 ounce mosaic at 60 minutes, 2oz mandarina at 20, and 2oz mandarina whirlpool.  Suggestions welcome.

I think a 1/2 oz Mosaic on the whirlpool would be good, too. Gonna dry hop this one?

Depending on what you're after, you could keep the whirlpool all Mandarina and dry hop an oz of Mosaic. I think it'd be good.

Good thought. I'm wondering if I should keep the mosaic for the 60 min or perhaps something a little more neutral.....leaving the mandarina and mosaic dominating. I've not used mosaic so don't want 1/2 ounce at 60 minutes taking over.

I like a neutral one like Magnum or Warrior to bitter APAs. It would let you save the Mosaic until late.
