We love making Brooklyn Sorachi Ace; it's one of the most popular and highly rated beers we make. And now, you can brew Sorachi Ace, too, in your kitchen! We've partnered with borough neighbors Brooklyn Brew Shop to develop a scaled down 1-gallon production recipe that includes the same grains and hops we use in every bottle of Brooklyn Sorachi Ace brewed here at the brewery.
Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a classic saison, an unfiltered golden farmhouse ale, with a clean malt flavor and the quirky Sorachi Ace hop—originally grown in Japan in the 1970s—standing front and center. The beer's uniquely bright, lemony and spicy aromatics tickle the nose before ascending into a fine harmony between pilsner malt and playful Belgian ale yeast. This kit will give both seasoned brewers and beginners the opportunity to deconstruct one of our favorite creations and understand what really makes it tick.
The kit includes:
Grain, hops and yeast for your first batch of brown ale
Clear vinyl tubing
1-gallon glass fermenting jug
