Bred in 1974 and released by Washington State University in 1990, Centennial is an aroma-type cultivar that has found favor as one of the most popular varieties in craft brewing. It is often referred to as a super-Cascade (containing nearly double the alpha content) and can be used for bittering purposes. Centennial is a diploid cross between Brewer's Gold and a USDA male.
Specific aroma descriptors include lemon, grapefruit and floral.
Alpha Acids: 7.0 - 12.0%
Growing your own hops can be very rewarding, all you need is lots of sun, and healthy soil - they'll practically grow themselves!
Keep rhizomes refrigerated (do not freeze) until the ground is soft enough to plant. Check out our guide to growing hops here.
