I have roughly one pound left of sterling hops that I got from a local brewery. I have no idea what to do with them right now. I have 4 lagers in my two freezers right now so it has to be an ale. Preferably something big and bold but I am open to any ideas. Something that can ferment in the upper 60 range. Calculate these to be about 3% alpha due to the age.

sub Sterling for Crystal - it's a great beer with the Crystal I assume it will work well with sterling.

Do a big Sterling pale ale, I'll bet the aromas would be amazing. Great summer beer to complement those lagers.

12.5 lbs pale malt
1.5 lbs caramel 60
1lb torrified wheat

5oz Sterling @ 75 mins
2oz Sterling @ 30 mins
2oz Sterling @ 15 mins
2oz Sterling @ 5 mins - flameout

Wyeast American Ale II, Safale S05

5oz Sterling dry hop for 10 days.

I grow Sterlings; I haven't found a beer that they didn't taste good.

I like to blend Sterling and Citra. Great combination for a hoppy brew. I find the combination also lends itself well to dark grain bills.
