Hope everyone will be kind enough to post recipes here to help develop some information about these new Belma hops for everyone. I plan to do a White IPA with it first.

Anyone else get their hops yet? I just checked my scale and 8 oz of water from measuring cup was 8.1 oz on the scale. I feel confident that my 18.4 oz was as true a measurement as I can get without switching to a triple beam balance. Hopefully everyone who ordered will get a bit extra to play with as well.

Just ordered 5lbs of Belma. I'd hate to wind up loving it and not be able to get more (especially at 5.25/lb.)

Nice, I regret not buying more and I haven't even gotten them yet. Hope they have some in stock when they release pellets in a few weeks and I'll get more if this first brew goes well.

I bought a pound of Citra and 2 lbs of Belma, but I don't have real high expectations. I'm planning on brewing an IPA with Cascade, Centennial, Belma for finishing and Simcoe & Belma for dry hop. I think for every hop that works well on it's own there are 10 that don't so I'm going to skip the SMaSH; insted I'll mix with hops that I can recognize the flavors/aromas and see what it adds.

Got mine yesterday and threw an ounce in with my other dry hops for a IIPA. When I opened the bag and smelled them I got a dankness reminiscent of columbus. I sucked the air out of the bag to get a "taste" of them and definitely got strawberry/pineapple notes. Almost like a strawberry lemonade. Quite fruity.

I'm hoping they pelletize them, if they do I'll grab a few lbs of those. If not, I'll pick up some leaf. I'll probably do an IPA recipe that's tried and true to see how this hop turns out.

I'm going to split 10 gallons of pale and single hop them. Serve them side by side and let as many people as I can taste them.

Oh snap. Might have to get a few more pounds of pellets if the club likes them. Hopefully they will keep that price point for the pellets too. Tomorrow I am going to do a belma amber per the wifes request. Will post the recipe here if I deem it a success.
