Hmmmmm, I was unaware of the "student grade" classification (although I shouldn't be surprised, given the amount of glassware my students broke when I was a TA).

1st season Centennials- onion/garlic odor

I planted 2 rhizomes of Centennials and 2 of Cascade this last spring, obtained from freshops.com.

adding sugar after primary fermentation is done

I usually add sugar in the last 5 minutes of the boil.
