    I think this might be my next beer to brew. I’ve been wanting to brew a patersbier and try out sorachi. Does the lemony character of the sorachi show itself? Just recently came across your blog-good stuff.

    Hi Jeff, Sorry for the delay, your post got stuck in wordpress’s spam folder. the Lemony flavor is a bit delecate with this hop. To much and it becomes a bit grassy in my opinion. Also since this is such a light beer a little goes a long way. I would not go over an ounce of the sorachi. If you brew it let us know how it turns out. Cheers!
