Default New hop--SORACHI ACE?

Quote:

high alpha acid potential 13-16%
Anyone ever heard of these? They are available at freshops. I'm blown away by the AA%. I'm ordering some.

One of the Heart of the Valley brewers had a pale made with it. They are not kidding about the lemon. Smooth bittering, like Amarillo.

Is the Sorachi another patented strain like Amarillo?

Don't know, not much info out there on these. I'd kill to be able to produce a plant though. Wish I could find hop seeds fo rthese varieties.

I'm glad as hell I bought that Glacier rhizome last year--I noticed on the hop seller sites they aren't offering any this year.

Watch Freshops in the spring. If the rhizomes are available, I suspect Dave will get some. Better yet, send him an e-mail now and let him know you are interested.

I'm getting ready to order some hops from them tonight and saw the Sorachi Ace listed just now. Never heard of them. All I was able to find was that they are grown in Oregon.

Dude, did you get yours yet? I think I'm gonna add some to my order!

<bump>

Just wanted to bump this up. I still haven't ordered any Sorachi Ace hops, but will today! I just wanted to see if there were any others that had used this hop variety since the intial posting back in November.

Thanks!

Just wondering.. has anyone here ever had a problem ordering pungent-smelling green leafy buds in tiny plastic bags over the internet?

I could easily see mail order hops as causing some "questions" to be asked...

Nope. I doubt you'll have any problems unless you're already suspected of ordering/possessing large quantities of another green leafy bud.

I'm actually waiting for the day that my neighbors begin to suspect me of making meth or having a "stash." I've got nothing to worry about - I never mess with the illegal stuff - so it'd be entertaining to have the authorities investigate my brewing setup.
