As I’ve been homebrewing every once in a while I become fascinated with some ingredient. Lately it has been Sorachi Ace Hops. I’m not entirely why this hop has intrigued me so, may be it’s the earthly lemon flavor or the cool sounding name. My first introduction was with Brooklyn Brewery’s Sorachi Ace. Then again several months later when I interviewed Brooklyn Brewery’s Garrett Oliver. Finally most recently in my own homebrew, one of which won the New Jersey State fair homebrew competition.
