Default Simple Sorachi Summer Ale

Hi All...Just thinking of whipping up a simple summer ale. I have 2 oz of Sorachi Ace hops from last summer that I need to use and I thought that this would be a good quick fix...

5 Gal Batch:

8# Light American LME from Williams Brewing online (thoughts on their LME?)

.5# 20L Crystal Malt Steep 30 min at 125 F

.25 oz additions of Sorachi Ace at 1hr, 45min, 30min, 15min, flame-out.

WLP 001 Cali Ale Yeast


I'm really interested in bringing out the Sorachi Ace flavors which I think would work really well for a summer sipper. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Much Love!
ACo

I think you'll get a good idea of how they taste. Wish I could help but my first attempt with SA hops is still carbing up.

I went with BM's Centennial Blonde recipe and used the SA's in the final additions.
