Pellets had a dankness to them. A little onion. But a sweet red gummy bear also came through strong.

Going for broke. About to draw the second runnings for an all Belma IPA.

Using the entire pound in a 8 gallon batch!







edit the next day to say:
Hit all my numbers and Denny's had a full krausen in less than eight hours.
Hoping for good things from this batch. Don't let me down Belma!

Last night i brewed a hop bursted pale ale. 39 IBU's, all in the last 20 minutes of boil. 3oz of belma, and 1.5 oz of cascade. Planning on dryhopping with 1 oz of belma and 1 of cascade. I'll come back and offer my thoughts on this in a few weeks.

I started drinking my belma hopped amber. The flavor, while being subdued, is a berry citrus with a finish of spice. It came through nicely and I will have more beers with belma in a supporting role.

Brewed a Kolsch last night with the Belma. When I opened the sealed bag, I got a nose full of fresh hops. I guess I'll see how subtle these are in about a month. For $5/lb I couldn't resist
7.8 2-Row
2.8 Crystal Wheat
.7oz Belma 60min
.3oz Belma 15min
.3oz Belma 5min
WLP 029 Kolsch

Fermenting at 60F

I mis-read this as 7/3/3 oz and was confused when I saw the malt-bill/style.

Beersmith had the IBU's over the profile with this hop recipe, figured if it was that subtle I could go over.

If this hop is as described, I think it will pair nicely with a Kolsch.

Agreed. Would have to use it late though due to the AA%.

Ok, I brewed up a borderline IIPA today (11 gallons). Simcoe FWH (all out of CTZ) and then 2 oz of Belma @ 15/10/5 and 3 oz @ flameout. It's about 80% Vienna malt as I'm trying to get rid of old(er) malt as new stuff is coming in.

Anyway, the only way I can explain the flavor/aroma is 'lemony'. Upon opening the bag I was expecting more citrus but got a lot more grassyness. However, the wort doesn't smell grassy at all, more lemony than anything. I think this flavor would pair really nicely with a summer-style beer, maybe a Blonde Ale or a really light lager.

I'll report back once fermentation is complete, should be about 2 weeks.

I got my pellets in with my Amarillo and Citra orders, and the pellets are do have the berry aroma when you rub them in your fingers. I also too, got a slight citrusy lemon smell. Then it has the grassy overtones. Slightly sweet, and pungent.
