I posted earlier in the Hops forum with some sorachi questions. I’ve decided to try an extract palisade / sorachi ace IPA.
After perusing the internets, I’ve decided to keep the sorachi bittering additions low.
I’m not shooting for a total hop bomb, and they additions are rounded to the 1/10th oz due to my kitchen scale.
Do you guys think this will come out alright? The 8 oz steeping of Caramel 40 is just to empty the cupboard!
To keep the color and chance for scorching down, I will start the boil with the 1lb DME with ~ 1/4 of the LME. The other 3/4 LME will be added 15 min before completion of the boil. This late addition will put my kettle close to 4 gallon…which is the total volume i’m looking for in this batch.
