Default What to do with 1lb Simcoe

I got my Xmas gift from my brother in Portland, 1 lb. of Simcoe whole hops.

I haven't made a beer with Simcoe yet. Also, I have always purchased the pellets of the hops only needed for the next brew. Based on what I learned here, they are used the same way. Guess I need to go to a head shop and get a scale.

While I don't want the tail wagging the dog, what should I make?
I do plan to vacuum seal and freeze the lb. in 1 or 2 oz. portions.

Prior to receiving this, my next up is Silky Stout, Irish Red, a Sam Adams XMAS Lager (first lager), and a Hefe. I don't think any of these use Simcoe. I tasted a Simcoe IPA and prefer the cascade & centennial IPA's more.

What to Do, What to do????

An all simcoe IPA is a good idea...

Can you ask where he got it? I've been searching for some in bulk but have not had any luck...

That's my primary hop, if you want to sell them I'll buy them from you.

He got them at F H Steinbart in Portland Oregon. He said they come from the Yakima Valley in Western Wshington.

The Portland are seems to be the place to live if you are a homebrewer.

Dude's Lake Walk Pale recipe is fantastic. I highly recommend it if you can get some Amarillo and Cascade/Centennial to complement the Simcoe.

This recipe looks great.
I can get these other hops, but in pellets. Any issues with mix matching pellets and whole hops in the beer? I plan to just toss in the hops in secondary and rack above the yeast cake/hop sediment.

Also, do you toast the 2 lb. of malted 2 row pale in the oven for this recipe?

No problem mixing pellets and whole. In fact, I did just that when I made it last month. If you read through the thread, Dude describes his method for toasting the grain in the oven.
