PALE WHEAT ALE BREWED WITH MOSAIC HOPS
This American take on a wheat ale is brewed using heaps of mosaic hops and fermented with a neutral yeast. Its mild bitterness and gentle malt character take a back seat to the tangerine, papaya and gooseberry aromas from this New-World hop.

This home brew recipe originates from Stephan Wiswedel the owner of Little Wolf Brewery in Cape Town South Africa.
It is his signature beer. It was put on the internet by Mike Halls of Realbeerrevolution.co.za for people to try at home.
I met Stefan in South Africa and he is thrilled to share his recipe with all home brewers.
It is a simple recipe with no hops in the boil.
Water profile is 100ppm of Chloride to 50ppm of Sulphate to bring out the hoppy flavour.
Feel free to try other Vermont style yeasts.
