Are CTZ hops three different hops or is Columbus hop the same thing? i.e if I buy columbus hops from a store am I getting CTZ?
Columbus, tomahawk, and Zeus "ctz" are the same hop. Just a different name from different growers.
CTZ is an abbreviation for Columbus, Tomahawk, ans Zeus. You can pretty much use these hops interchangeably.
So, are they the same exact hop variety? Or can they just be used interchangeably? Looks like we have 2 different answers that I was looking up. I thought they were different varieties.
