Default Great Guide with cultivar preferences

I went ahead and started a new thread as I could have posted this in several of the active threads. I bought my rhizomes from keystonehomebrew and they have a nice link to a pdf file from their supplier. It gives a very nice how to get started, a few basics and then some cultural characteritics of the various varieties, which I've pasted below. Here's the link to the whole pdf.

Growing your own hops

Cascade (4.5 - 7% AA) Grows well in all climates. Susceptible to aphids.
Centennial (9.5 - 11.5% AA) Grows well in all climates. Susceptible to downy mildew.
Chinook (11 - 13% AA) Grows well in dry, hop climates. Great ornamental hop. Does not grow well in moist climates. Susceptible to spider mites.
Fuggle (4 - 5.5% AA) Grows well in damp climates, suffers a little in hot climates.
Glacier (5 - 6% AA) Grows well in all climates.
Golding (4 - 5% AA) Grows well in mild, moist climates. Does OK in hot climates.
Hallertau (3.5 - 5.5% AA) Grows well in mild, moist climates, suffers a little in dry, hot climates.
Horizon (12 -13.5% AA) Grows well in all climates.
Liberty (3 - 5.5% AA) Grows well in mild climates. Can grow in hot climates.
Mt. Hood (5 - 8% AA) Grows well in all climates.
Northern Brewer (8 - 10% AA) Grows well in temperate climates. Suffers a little in hot climates.
Nugget (12 - 14% AA) Grows well in all climates.
Saaz (3.5 - 4.5% AA) Grows well in cooler, moist climates.
Santiam (6 - 7% AA) Grows well in moderate climate. Does OK in hot climates.
Sterling (5.5 - 7% AA) Grows well in moderate climate. Does OK in hot climates.
Tettnang (4 - 5% AA) Grows well in moderate climates. Suffers a little in hot climates.
Willamette (4 - 6% AA) Grows well in all climates.

Hop facts:
Each rhizome can produce between 1/2 and 2 pounds of fresh hops
Hops are perennials and come back each year.
Hops can grow up to 30 feet in a season
Hops like full sun and to be well watered
