I'm guessing that 55 pounds of grain isn't for a 5 gallon batch.....

Went for 30 gal but got 28 @ ~85% efficiency & ~ 85 ibu's. Tried my 1st keg & def plenty of fruitiness going on with nice crisp hop bite. i guess belma is better in combination with the C hops and other higher AA hops. i'm yet to do a smash or any single hopping with the belma...

I just opened a bag of Belma and had a whiff. It's a very unique aroma, hard to put my finger on, but seems herbal to me. I'm getting a little pine and maybe a touch of black licorice, something like that. I'm anxious to feature it in a simple pale, I'll do that next.

Yeah, it doesn't have the aroma, but mine tastes great too.

Thx, one of my favorite styles. I'll think about incorporating belma into my next WIPA.

Enjoying yet another glass of my all-belma APA. Can't wait to use this hop more. After a couple weeks in the keg, the aroma has definitely faded, and I can see where people get a grassy character from the hop (I only dry hopped 3 days). Still, my next iteration of this beer will be even more amazing. I can't get enough Belma!

You can have mine. Not sure they are worth the shipping cost though...
