Thanks! I'll have to see if I can get Soriachi. I have a spreasheet and can tweak the amounts and times for different alphas, no problem. I still have a lot of Centennial so I think I will brew to the original recipe for now and tweak the extracts and hops a bit. A pinch more hop bitterness would be OK as I think the extract makes it a bit underbalanced to the malt side. But man, is it smooth!
I had to use some pilsner extract in place of the extra light in my last batch, so I'll wait to see what that does to the dryness. I might swap out small amounts of DME with plain sugar to see if I can tone down the maltiness.
