They donít have the punch I want. Kinda weak. Makes sense for the price.

Iíll be using the whole lb. that I have during cooling, so that should take care of any mildness that there might be.


Only used 10 oz. at flame out.


Bottled this yesterday and it tasted fantastic. Anxious for it to carbonate. Will report back in a couple weeks.

Paul/Dickinsonbeer/Spiderbite and I/Community Beer Works brewed a batch of Belma IPA on Friday.

- 1.07 SG
- calculated at 56IBUS but lots added to the whirlpool that donít get calculated..

Its pretty good right now. As noted theyíre a restrained hop - certainly not something with anywhere near the intensity of most hops being used in American IPAs these days.

Paul and I had each ordered 5# of pellets & interestingly we got bags labeled at different AAUs - 9.8 and 11.3. We went with the 9.8s as the 11.3s had some onion/garlic character.

Iíve been using belma pellets as a FWH addition for my past few beers although only 1 of them has been ready yet. The bitterness from it seemed clean. Iíll know more about them as a FWH and 60min in the next few months. Everything Iíve heard about them doesnít really make me want to use them in later additions.

Had a bottle this weekend. Lovely beer, but the Belma characteristic was pretty subtle. A nice hop, but certainly a subtle one. Nice fruity and floral character to it, though.
