Seemed to hear a lot about Sorachi Ace but never got much in the way of good descriptions of flavor and aroma when brewing with that hop. I suggest it (SORACHI ACE
) as one for your consideration.
Great idea, here!
Anyone ever do a simpler hop-tea type of tasting to get a feel for the bitterness and taste of these various hops. Not sure if it would be realistic, but It'd be a hella-lot cheaper and quicker than making a bunch of brew batches and might avoid the "what a waste of time and money that batch was" possibility.
