Hi Everyone,

My LHBS has some Sorachi Ace in stock, so I was thinking of brewing up something using this hop. I like the idea of a Saison for this one, what do you think of this recipe?

5lb Pilsner DME
1lb Wheat DME

0.50oz Sorachi Ace (60 min)
1oz Sorachi Ace (20 min)
0.50oz Sorachi Ace (5 min)

1oz Fresh Ginger (5 min, or flameout)
1 Whirlfloc Tablet (5 min)

Saison Yeast, either Wyeast or White Labs

I am looking for something light in color, light in ABV (4-6%), that really lets the hops and ginger shine.

What do you think? Too much/too little hops? Too much/too little ginger? Should I add any specialty grains?

I've never brewed a Saison...

Thanks

The only thing you get from soriachi at 60 min is bitterness. You may choose to consider another hop for bittering and save that 1/2 oz for later in the boil or a future brew.

Bumping, any other suggestions? Anyone have experience with using ginger or making saisons?

Thanks

I like 2oz ginger, chopped finally, added after fermentation, for about two weeks.
