Finally. . .

After a week of being sick, I finally feel well enough to go back to work. That also means I can start thinking about brewing again. I am going to brew another version of West Texas Wheat: 50% wheat, 50% two-row, and the usual Sorachi Ace hops. I am going to use California Ale yeast, just to see what happens.

what do you think about the sorachi ace hops? i wasn't aware of their existence until i made an order off of freshops to get my hands on some for an IPA (Batch 11, as I call it), and i thought the results were pretty fantastic... moreover, do you have any favorite hops to use? I'm pretty partial to Kent Goldings, Williamettes, Cascade and then Centennials and Chinooks for the higher alpha acid brews.

...and of course, glad to hear you're feeling better!

I like the Sorachi Ace quite well. I still think I detect a lemony taste, but I don't know how much of that is in my head. They imparts a nice background bitterness, too. I really need to brew this wheat with another hop to test myself. I love Saaz, and would love to try that in this beer!
