Southern Cross substitute?
« on: July 30, 2013, 01:23:50 pm »
Hello everyone,
I have a recipe that I am trying to make again, but Southern Cross is all but impossible to find anymore.   Does anyone know of a good substitute?

Thanks,
John

FWIW, I've never used Southern Cross but its description as lemony/piney sounds like it may have a profile similar to Sorachi Ace.

Thanks BBoy.  I will give it a try.  From what I could find about it, is that it is a lemony Japanese hop.  Who knows, it may turn out even better!
