Named after the Washington State festival. Centennial is an aroma-type cultivar, bred in 1974 and released in 1990. The name is derived from the 100 Year Celebration of the state of Washington in 1989. 3/4 of the variety is coming from Brewers Gold, but some genetic material derives from fuggels and East Kent Golding. The citrus character is a consistent background in Centennial’s aroma. Woody-spicy aromas of spruce, barrique, tonka bean, tarragon and aniseed combine with fruity raspberry notes to produce a well-rounded character combined with exotic lychee and pineapple flavors.Fresh lemon and bergamot spiced with aniseed add to a flavour explosion.

MAKING IT EASIER THAN EVER TO BREW HOP-FORWARD BEERS.
Today the love of hop-forward beers is driving brewers to use more hops than ever before. Every brewer knows: the more pellets you use, the more beer you lose in the process. Now there’s INCOGNITO, an all-natural hop flavour product specifically designed to be used in the whirlpool—and to deliver the impactful, variety-specific flavour outcomes brewers want.

Get all the alpha acids and flavor compounds of hops without the vegetative material, for maximized efficiency and greater yield.
PLAYS WELL WITH PELLETS AND WHOLE HOPS
INCOGNITO is pure hops, so it blends perfectly with pellets, whole hops and other or INCOGNITO varieties for wonderfully complex flavours.
FLOWABLE AT AMBIENT TEMPERATURE
There’s no need to pre-heat or to use special equipment. It’s easy to pour and offers great solubility in hot wort, so it’s easy to use.
REDUCED SHIPPING AND STORAGE COSTS
INCOGNITO comes in 2L bottles or 16g sachets that have less shipping and storage costs, compared to pellets
LESS CLEAN UP AND LESS WASTE
INCOGNITO’s flowability and solubility makes clean-up a breeze, with less wastewater effluent for lower BOD and COD.
It is recommended that Incognito be dosed directly to the brewhouse whirlpool to ensure optimal flavor and aroma utilisation. Timing of addition can influence final beer flavor and aroma; brewer’s discretion will dictate dosage timing and addition rate. As a guideline, dosing Incognito at a rate of 50-200 grams per hL (0.5-2g per L) of beer is recommended for initial trials, then adjusted to achieve desired results. To ensure optimal flowability, product may need to be warmed to room temperature from cold storage conditions. Contents may naturally separate, shake before use.
Maximum benefit is achieved with mixing INCOGNITO in hot wort immediately prior to dosing in the whirlpool. This can be achieved any number of ways and depends on each brewer’s equipment type and arrangement. For example, a hop-doser prior to the whirlpool is an ideal vehicle to more thoroughly solubilize the product as it enters the whirlpool. Where mixing prior to the whirlpool is not practical, INCOGNITO can be added directly to the whirlpool with satisfactory results.
Generally a 1:6 replacement ratio.
Usage is 1g/L Incognito in whirlpool is equivalent to 1.5lb/bbl pellets (5.8g/L).
Incognito is a hop derived product for use in the Whirlpool only. It is not recommend for dry hopping or for use in the kettle.
Flowable means that is is not set like a resin, it does however require warmth to make it more liquid, and it will also be very sticky at lower temperatures and more difficult to clean off any surface. To remove use hot soapy water, then rinse thoroughly.
Do not eat or taste or consume this product. Only to be used as an ingredient in brewing. If you get it on your hands immediately wash to remove it.
