I think I am going to try my first SMaSH this weekend. I want to do a Marris Otter/Whitbread Goldings Variety SMaSH. My question is what should my hop additions look like and what style should I go for that would best feature these ingrediants? Right now I have the recipe formulated in the Best Bitter Category, but could easily be changed to an English IPA. Currently it looks like this:

Batch Size: 3.00 gal
Boil Size: 3.43 gal

Very nice, I have some MO on the way and want to do a SMASH too. I haven't done a MO brew yet and need to know the taste.

I've used Marris Otter for 3 of my last 4 beers (Mild, Best Bitter, and India Brown Ale). While only 1 of those are able to be drank (Mild) I have been very pleased with the results thus far. 'm looking forward to this SMaSH though, I am heading to the LHBS soon to pick up the stuff I need to brew this Saturday.
