I think we should all do a 1st year Belma Hop beer trade/comp thing..

I've got a hoppy IPA with it, I think that would be fun.

Any thoughts on a Belma/N. Brewer hopped Best Bitter? Or perhaps Willamette/Belma? I'd like to give that a roll this weekend.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I'd be willamette and belma would pair well... maybe better than NB.. but I'm not huge on NB, except in my porter.

Dude - you gotta brew Janet's Brown Ale sometime. It uses a lot of NB and is one of the best beers Ive had.

My Belma/Cascade/Citra Begian Red is epic. Citrus, tropical fruit, earthy, berry, scrumptious-ness.

Next time I'm omitting the pale chocolate malt and making this LOOK like it tastes... Fruity Pebbles

I'm in. Involved in another online beer swap and online tasting. Maybe we could do the same in a chat or skype? Would be fun to drink them all together and share feedback.

damn - that would be fun!

drinking my last Belma IPA right now though

If we slated it for 2 or 3 months out I could easily be in.

One idea would be to agree on a similar recipe so we can try different takes on it. Allow everyone a little wiggle room on actual grains and yeast. Like say all should use some variation of california ale yeast (S05/1065/001/Denny's etc) or maybe an English yeast. Aim for +/- 5 points on a 1.060 beer. 85% 2-row (from Marris Otter to Pilsner) with the remaining 15% open to interpretation.

Maybe even send your beer out to 2 or 3 participants?

Could be a grand event fellas

Pick a category, say 6D, and all send to the same competition?
The only caveat being that we use Belma as the dominant hop.

Maybe one of the AHA Club-Only competitions. (Pretty sure HBT is a AHA club.)

Then post score sheets and recipes in a new thread here on HBT.
Plus we'd get to see how we do as a club.

That sounds pretty fun, though I'd be more inclined for everyone to do different categories. I'd be interested in exchanging entries with other interested HBTers, too.
