I bought a couple pounds of Belma. I was just going to get one but I realized with shipping the second pound only added $6.25 to the order. It would have been wasteful to pass on the second pound. $23 for two pounds shipped fedex is ridiculously cheap, especially for a 12 AAU hop.

I don't make a lot of hoppy beers but it might get me more into making bigger aroma hops, especially with how cheap it is. I guess if I don't like the flavor or aroma it will just be my bittering hop on 90 minute boils so I can boil out all the flavor.

I also picked up a few lbs of these - looking forward to using them in some bitters and pale ales - and dry hopping. I haven't brewed with whole hops in a while but looked like a great deal for everyday session ales.

what is your grain bill for single hop pale? i'm going to do quite a few of these this year for the first time and i was planning on following the lagunitas hop stoopid model of ~97% 2 row/3% victory

I like to keep it relatively simple with:
93% Gambrinus ESB (or your favorite 2 row), 5% Crystal 40, and 2% carapils and ferment with a clean yeast that accentuates hops. Something like 1056, wlp001, or us05.

For the hops I usually do 60, 20, and 0 min additions. I try to aim for about 20 IBU for the 60 min, and 15-20 IBU for the 20 min. I may or may not dry hop with an ounce or two.

I too purchased some Belma. $5 for Belma is a gonga, I hope it is worthy

Wish they were selling them in 1 or 4 oz. packages, sounds awesome but 1 lb for a one gallon brewer is insane.

C'mon! I'd be literally brewing five times a year if I did 5 gallon batches. Plus it lets me experiment a lot. This hop sounds excellent and right up my alley but no way till they release 1 or 4 oz packs.
