General Trade Perception
Very balanced hop, sometimes called a super Cascade.

Possible Substitutions
Cascade, possibly Columbus or Chinook. Analytically a blend of 70% Cascade and 30% Columbus will give similar profile.

All US Ale styles, has been used with US Wheat beers.

Additional Information
Named from the Washington State Centennial Celebration. At one time this variety was going to be destroyed for lack of interest by the world's major breweries. Today has found a very favorable following by craft-brewers.

Typical Hop Use
Dual purpose

Just finished a good brew day, brewing an English Bitter or maybe it s a pale. Did a starter seemed to go well. But my picnic tap on my keg snapped so had to use a pair of plyers to pour. Nice n foamy :D

Think you'll find the others will be like the grainfather app if they are set up correctly.

Hi everyone, just wondering why the likes of BS, Brewfather ect specify a lower strike water volume than the sparge volume? The only one that does not is the Grainfather app.
