I'm brewing up two, 3.5 gallon batches on Sunday in the drier West Coast style... one with Wyeast London Ale 1028 and one with San Diego Super. Warrior to bitter at 60, Citra & Belma for the late additions and dryhop. Perhaps I should do 2:1 for the SD Super and 1:2 for the London Ale batch.
How many oz total for dry hopping are you planning on using?

Probably about 2.5 total oz. dryhops per 3.5 gallon batch, which is approx. 0.70 oz. dryhops per gallon of beer.

1:2 ratio sounds good but u might wanna lower it to 2:3 or somewhere in between. The citra will probably stand out much more than the Belma. But if that's what u want then that's okay.

^yup

Citra is going to be much bolder than the Belma. If you want a balanced flavor between the two, I would consider going 2:1 or 3:2 Belma:Citra.

I don't want a balanced flavor per se and I am very familiar with Citra. I just haven't smelled Belma yet for myself. I guess I'll figure it out when I open the bag.

Just finished brewing a smoked IPA:

5.5 gallons, 75% efficiency

6lb Briess 2-row
5lb Briess Smoked Malt (cherrywood)
2lb Weyermann Smoked Malt (beechwood)
1.5 oz Belma (leaf, 12.1%AA) FWH
1.5 oz Belma 20 min
3 oz dry hop
US-05

Per BrewTarget:
OG: 1.066
FG: 1.016
IBU: 60
SRM: 6

I actually got 73% efficiency, so the OG was 1.064. Also, the color seems a little darker, almost somewhere between deep golden and light brown.

In my 7 years of brewing I have never had a hydrometer sample taste so good!

Nice.. Loving the positives on here. Worst I've read, is that it's muted and not and outspoken hop. Not a bad deal, will blend well and add layers of flavor.

I have a pound of leaf and pellet, so I'll be doing something with it soon. Maybe a nice wheat pale or something with them and something else.

I went ahead and got a pound of pellets today with my amarillo and citra order. I was sort of surprised by the fruitiness of this one. I keep picturing it with chocolate. Like strawberries dipped in chocolate.

I did magnum and cascade for my bittering and aroma/flavor. 3dry hops of Belma. It compliments them well. Dry hop heavy! Belma comes on soft, but flavorful. I did 1.75oz for 3 days, 1oz for 3 days, 1oz for three days. Wish I would have done 2oz each dry hop.

So is everyone thinking that you should close to double what you'd normally use in say.. an amarillo or citra addition?

Soft, muted, subtle... all have been said of it.
