ah, equipment, gotcha

i'm not sure about dry hopping with cascade after using sterling, which is fairly similar to saaz...i smell conflict...i would just dry hop with more sterling and willamette...but, by all means, go with the cascade if you feel inspired

What he said, replace the cascade for a hop you used in the boil.

yeah, otherwise it looks like a good brew - though it comes up to 1.058 OG, maybe a little on the heavy side (for me anyway)

oh, ok...well, 1.052 is right around the sweet spot! and if it finishes near 1.058, i always say it's better to finish over than under
