Sorachi Ace hops

Postby aleguy » Sat Apr 02, 2011 10:14 am

Does anyone know where I can find some of these by the lb? I can't find them anywhere except Austin Home Brew, and they only sell them by the oz. Hops direct is sold out. (Big surprise there. :roll: )
I know it's late in the year to buy hops, but I'm hoping to find a source for bulk hops that still has some in stock.

Defalcos had them by the 2 ozs and maybe bigger but I didn't see your post till I got home. I'm drinking a sorachi ace from Brooklyn right now and it is pretty tasty and smelling damn good. Its a nice fruity (lemon) beer. However, not as lemon as the fantome a couple months ago.

The fantome probably actually used lemon zest. I'm working on a Cascadian Dark Ale recipe for Gulf Brew, which is why I'm looking for them. I thought they would make a nice addition to the other citrusy hops I'm planning to use.

morebeer has them for $1.50 per oz. That's not a bad price considering almost every one is sold out now. If you want them, but a pound from them.

I think I would rather try to split an 11-lb bag from CMG with other members.
