Belma Hops
 
I saw a thread recently about hopsdirect's new belma hops. For five bucks a lb I couldn't resist and jumped on the bandwagon. Anybody drinking on a batch brewed with these yet? I won't be brewing for another week or two and was wondering what to expect.

This doesn't ease your curiosity today, but I will be brewing a batch this coming Saturday w/ Belma. I'm sure others will have reviews before me, but mine will be posted in due time.

High alpha, citrus hop for $5 a pound? Sounds really good, but I'm not in the market for another bulk hop order now since I still have citra, columbus, chinook, amarillo, falconer's flight, and misc homegrown in the freezer. Keep us posted with results.

Come to think about it, I have a pale ale that's almost ready to keg up. I used centennial and cascade. I think I'll go ahead and dry hop with some belma so I can get a quick taste test.

I am going to brew a Gambrinus Pale/Belma SMaSH this Saturday as well. Will report with results.

LOL...googled the Belma to see what it might be good for. Guess we're all brewing it today!

I'm going to do a simple pale with it, 2-row and a little 40L Crystal. We should all post up on this thread with our experiences! I'm kind of excited about this hop. If it's great, well I have 2 LBs of it! If it's not? Well I'm out 10 bucks. Really it's a can't lose..because I know it'll be beer at least!

I have two "pounds" (19oz each) in the freezer but not brewing with them yet.

Mashing mine right now...added a touch of carapils and C-20 I had laying around. Doing a mini batch of 3 gallons:
5 lbs Pale
2 oz carpils
2 oz c-20
.25 oz Belma at 60
.35 oz Belma at 15
.5 oz Belma at 0

1.050/ 35 IBU/ SRM 5
US-O5 yeast

Hope you are getting some J-bay-like surf around SB;)

Cheers,Tim
