Notes
Chit Malt is the Dextrin Malt.

The hops in this recipe is just based on what is on hand. The amount of hops per addition should stay around the same (the dry hop could be bigger,) but hops like Columbus and Citra go great with the Belma profile. I like to use Columbus in a major quantity in the dry hop and whirlpool, and Citra in a minor role for any addition from the 20min on.
