Default Centennial "Type" hops.

Has anyone used these from Hopunion? I got them from Northern Brewer. think they are a blend of Centennials, Columbus and cascade.

Just ordered a lb of 'C type' hops from farmhouse brewing supply, hope theyre good! Supposed to be a blend of cascade and columbus, trying to replicate centennial.

Got these with my dead ringer kit from NB. They definitely don't have that citrusy zing you get from centennial but they are close. They made a good beer for me. I'd use them again.

I think I'll pick up a pound this week. I only live five minutes from Northern Brewer in Minneapolis. I've only been buying them by the oz.

I just did 2 ruination clones, one with real centennials and the other with the centennial type. I am kegging both of them this weekend. The fermenter samples tasted very different to me. The centennial type had a more puckering citrus flavor and was slightly more bitter. Not bad though.

Centennial type is a 70/30 cascade/columbus blend from what I've heard. I wouldn't be surprised if whoever packages it changes it up based on sensory evaluations of that year's crops, though.

Both kegs have long since kicked. But, from my notes:

The real centennials stayed truer to what the bag of pellets smelled like.
Fresh, bright, and citrusy. The keg stayed really fresh longer than the types.

About 3 weeks into the "type" keg you could taste some dank hop taste. It lost a lot of it's flavor compared to the real deal at about a month and you would get a firm bitterness with a hint of what they smelled like going into the kettle.

If centennials were out again I wouldn't hesitate to pick these up as a sub. They
don't make the same beer but a close approximation. But, you guys probably already knew this.
