This blended varietal is half Saaz parentage with some Cascade, Brewer’s Gold, and Early Green hops thrown in. The result is a unique, dual purpose hop with wonderful aromatics and smooth bittering qualities. Sterling will generally have an alpha acid content between 4.5% and 9%.
The aroma presented is a combination of mild spice, citrus, and a floral bouquet that adds a nice touch to numerous beer styles. Possible substitutions for Sterling hops include Saaz and Mt. Hood. Give this unique hop a taste test in craft brews like Bombshell Blonde from Southern Star Brewery.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
