That was kind of my thinking, just trying to compliment different aspects of the yeast using hops I had on hand. Willamette smelled pretty spicy so I said what the hell, guess I'll find out if it works or not. For a brief moment there I looked at the Chinook, but my rational side was like "no, don't do it! not here! that's for IPA's!" Now I kinda wish I had...

I wonder if Sorachi or Citra would work? Haven't used either, but the citrus/lemon aspects I've read about might bring out interesting flavors. Maybe Amarillo? I sometimes get a bit of tropical fruit in my Amarillo Blonde....

You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I did put amarillo once, that's good. Citra would be good

sorachi ace is a disgusting hop, don't do it.

I did a 10 gallon batch and split it, one's on 3711 and the other on a belgian strain from a local brewery. It's basicly a 60% pills 40% wheat and I did Citra at 60 min. ahtanum at 20mins for 45 IBUs and 3oz ahtanum 0 mins. I brewed it last weekend, I'll let you know how that comes out... I've done the same thing with all Amarillo and it was great. Sorachi is a good hop for a saison and it good in Brooklyn single hop by the same name.

Would you care to clarify?

I've never used it but enjoyed the Brooklyn Sorachi Ace the time I tasted it.

hehe, I HATE brooklyn Sorachi Ace, and the lemony flavor of that hop. I was jesting- but I really don't like it.


although you may like it
