My Pale Ale had the following schedule:
20min Sorachi Ace/Citra
15min Sorachi Ace/Citra
10min Sorachi Ace/Citra
5min Sorachi Ace/Citra
Flamout Sorachi Ace/Citra
The pale came out better than I had anticipated!
Yesterday I had the first bottle of this beer fully carbonated. Previously I had just had a sample pre-bottling.
It came out great! However, not nearly as citrusy as anticipated. Has a much more piney, evergreen quality to it. Still fantastic, but not citrusy. The other Citra (and Sorachi Ace) beers I've had to this point have all been dry hopped with said hops, and had a MUCH more pronounced citrus character and aroma. I'm going to brew this beer again with a few tweaks, and dry hop it.
