Just bottled a smoked IPA that used Belma exclusively. Did 1.5 oz FWH, 1.5 oz cube hop (I no-chill), and 3 oz dry hop for 8 days. The hydro sample at bottling had nice bitterness, but I really couldn't taste the hop flavor. Not willing to say Belma is too subtle for smoke until I can verify with a carbed, conditioned sample.

Just tried my APA at 3 weeks conditioning. Hop schedule and grain bill are posted in this thread. WOW. Obviously Belma is not a dominant hop, as posted here by many, but it plays incredibly well in the sandbox w/ citra and cascade. My friends' only comments are that the aroma might actually be TOO intense. Definite strawberry presence which is clearly from the Belma. It literally smells like Hawaiian Punch. My friend (cicerone) placed it just below fresh Zombie Dust on his all-style beer rankings. Can't complain about that.

Thinking about doing an 100% Brett IPA with wlp644. Little chinook, some amarillo and a whole lot of belma. Is it possible to make a beer too fruity? lol

Yup. Ferment a little too high and it can get really really

But I don't think over hopping will be a problem.

I was thinking more 1 beer per person, 3 beers (or however many, again, arbitrary number) out total. So not everyone is going to get everyone's beers necessarily, but everyone can expect a healthy sampling of beers.

Depends what everyone is comfortable doing as far as paying for shipping goes I guess.

I'm thinking perhaps, everyone interested, post up.. Make another thread perhaps in the share forum for the Belma deal.. Lets limit it to.. say.. 10-15-20 folks, if that many will brew with the Belma.

I say everyone will make a trade with.. 2 people, but allow it to all over lap, perhaps do it by location, so shipping isn't insane for someone from CA to ship to NY.. But GA can ship to CO and VA, and it wouldn't be killer.

We can have it all spread out, and people can of course, include extras if they so choose.. perhaps a local craft, or another HB.

Does anyone know how we could all taste them together? Chatwise or skype? Can you do big group calls that way?

I'm up for however many as the group limit, I'd like to get send at least 3 and no more than 5 beers. How do we figure out who to send to/who to ship to? All the same or all different?

As many beers as there are in this thread, I'd vote for sending out any beer with Belma, no further restrictions. I've got two now that I think should be pretty fine.
