Hey just a thought. How hard is it to add a column to the spreadsheet, and perhaps add sidearm length's on there as well. spacing constraints might make someone choose a different variety. I'd be willing to help with the research. Pm me if you need me.

Does anyone know when that was originally published, or if they recompile it annually? With all of the newer hop varieties of the past few years, I'm just wondering how up-to-date it is...

your chart is excellent. I have only been brewing about 2 years and I am still learning about the different hops and their characteristics. I started a small hop garden this year and look foward to the results. I apprieciate the time you put into this information. thanks for sharing.

Thank you for loading the chart. Just ordered my rhizomes this morning and this spreadsheet helped in selecting which hops I wanted to plant.

Cheers!

This is an awesome spreadsheet. I wish I would have looked at this before I planted.
Thanks!

Very nice. If anyone is looking to add a column, I find that information on Maturity is helpful from USDA Named Hop Variety Descriptions.

e.g. MATURITY: Medium to medium late

This can give a relative idea of when to pick - or help you figure out what you have if you've forgotten where you've planted what.

Great spreadsheet! Nice to see reassurances of the 4 varieties I picked to grow at home:
Cascade
Centennial
Newport
Nugget

I got 2 rhizomes of each variety, and I'm planting along a fence line that gets pretty much full sun. Hopefully I'll get mine planted this weekend, and can expect a nice crop of hops after next summer!
