    Sterling

    Sterling’s citrus-meets-Saaz character enhances lagers, Belgian ales, and wheats.
    SKU: HSTE0044

    Breeding/Development: USA. Sterling’s pedigree includes Saaz, Cascade, Brewers Gold, Early Green, and other European varieties. It was released in 1998 as a higher-alpha replacement for Saaz with improved disease resistance and storability.

    Brewing Application: Dual purpose: although primarily used for its exciting, pleasant aromatics, Sterling’s alpha acid levels can contribute in the kettle as well. A good choice for hop-forward lagers, Belgian ales, and other continental styles.   

    Sensory: Moderate and pleasingly “hoppy.” Prominent herbal quality reminiscent of Saaz, with flashes of candied citrus, sweet grass, bright spice, and dried hay.

    Botanical Classification:
    Family: Cannabaceae
    Genus: Humulus
    Species: Lupulus

    Maturity: Early

    Yield: 1400 - 1600 lbs/acre
