Sorachi Ace Pilsner

A German style pilsner brewed with Sorachi Ace hops. A cross between the British hop brewers gold and Czech Saaz, it exhibits a strong lemon and spicy aroma. I've never brewed with Sorachi Ace hops before. Lager don't mask hop flavors as much as ales, so a little goes a long way and the flavor of the hop is more pronounced because in lagers yeast flavors are subdued compared to ales.

Grist bill today is Briess pale, German pils, wheat, and Victory malt. Bittering hops are whole leaf glacier and finished with two ounce of whole leaf Sorachi Ace hops. Fermented with Fermentis Saflager S-23.
