US Sterling Hop Pellets - 1oz

For a noble hop character with a distinct US twist try the Sterling variety. Bred in Oregon, USA to enhance the traits of the noble Saaz variety, Sterling shares the aroma and flavour character of its progenitor with its distinct spicy, herbal and earthy notes. This is an excellent aroma hop variety for brewing a broad range of styles from Pilsner to Pale Ale. It can also be used as a bittering hop that imparts a distinct citrus flavour, but this may require a large amount of Sterling in hop-forward beers, since its average alpha level content is on the lower side of the spectrum.
  • Alpha: 5.5 - 8.5%
  • Beta: 4.5 - 6%
  • Co-H: 22 - 27% of alpha acids
