I used up half of 1lb in my brew and had the other half left over so what I did was keep all the hops in that little astronaut bag they come in and resealed it with an iron for a few seconds on high. Leave a corner unsealed and then u can push out all the air and then seal that edge too.

I was taking my extra re packaged hops over to to my friends house to store in a deep freezer, and I left them on the front seat of my car with a bag of dextrose while I ran into the store. People were probably walking by thinking to themselves "what an unintelligent man, leaving his drugs in plan sight at the store"

I have the continuous roll. It's only 8" wide though.

Looks like Belma pellets are up now. Same for Cascade and Centennial.

Just tasted my first cascade/belma hop mix. Flowery-fruit with a hint of spice. I really like it. Going to get some more Belma in pellet form.

Nice, I just ordered a pound of Belma leaf... Gonna give it a shot.. Spicy, and fruity sound good to me.

Might do a nice Belma Saison.

I picked up centennial, cascade and Belma pellets. I'm stoked to use the Belma!

Just taste tested some of my beer in fermentation and the Belma hops are not what I expected not really like citra or a tropical fruity more of a spicy fruity reminds me of li hing fruits if u know what that is.

Spicy and fruity might be a good combo to layer some complexity in your beers though.

Going for a citrusy, piney ipa but want that spicy in there without over doing it with... Chinook? Toss in some Belma, some Cascade, and some simcoe, and you've got a citrusy/piney/spicy hob juice!
