I've had bitter hop flavor come from dry hopping as well. The quoted text from the OP makes sense to me: Dry hopping is essentially creating a tincture. Don't believe me? Drop 3 grams of a high alpha hop in a liter of vodka and come back in a month, chose something fruity and popular like mosaic or galaxy. 3 grams is toughly equal to 2 oz in a 5 gallon ...
I would use cider yeast (like WLP775 or WYeast 4766). I think strong hop flavors would be out of place, so I would go for aged hops (like people do for p-lambic), and something low-alpha with citrus notes (Strisselspalt would fit the bill). I agree you should ditch the molasses – mojitos are typically made with white rum, which would not have any molasses ...
I'm assuming you mean the mojito cocktail, made with mint and lime. A North Carolina brewery called NoDa Brewing does a mojito-inspired beer called the NoDajito. You might want to look into that for inspiration. They went all the way with the mojito theme and used mint leaves and lime zest. I'm not quite sure why you'd want to add molasses to the beer, or ...
I am sorry to say this but there isn't really a substitute for Nelson Sauvin it is a rather unique hop. Some people suggest: Riwaka, Motueka; but they are not to my mind a reasonable substitute. I really think you are going to struggle to find anywhere selling NS rhizomes, they don't seem to be available for sale.
Hmmn that’s an interesting one I would probably drop the molasses and swap to agave syrup and use Citra hops 3-5 grams and then do a dry hop with a bunch of mint. Also since a mojito has a very clean flavor profile I would probably do a lager of some sort so that at least narrows down your yeast a little. Assuming your talking about making a beer like a ...
I tried contacting SAB Miller and I got a flat "no we don't do that" response from them so I suppose overseas is the only option.
