We are not brewing experts in the least, however this is one of two brewing hops that come highly recommended for both growing and using in our climate zone.  If you are a home brewer, please report back and let us know about your success with this variety. 

Note: During winter, the plant will die back.  Simply prune off dead branches and new life will start in the spring.

** This plant is still in experimental stage at The Urban Farm.  Experimenting and time is needed before getting Greg's stamp of personal approval.

Here is what we found online at beeradvocate.com:

Centennial is an aroma-type cultivar, bred in 1974 and released in 1990. The genetic composition is 3/4 Brewers Gold, 3/32 Fuggle, 1/16 East Kent Golding, 1/32 Bavarian and 1/16 unknown.

A relatively new hop on the market, this hop used to be called CFJ90. Described by some as a "Super Cascade" and we tend to agree, but it's not nearly as "citrusy". Some even use it for aroma as well as bittering. Bitterness is quite clean and can have floral notes depending on the boil time. (alpha acid: 9.5-11.5% / beta acid: 4.0-5.0%)
