Default SMaSH recipes?

Good evening everybody! I was just wondering if any body had any favorite SMaSH recipes. This will be my 1st all grain batch so I'm looking forward to getting to know some malt. Thanks for any and all suggestions!

I learned that I didn't like Marris Otter by doing a SMaSH. It is a pretty good way to figure that kind of stuff out.
Pick a base malt and a hop and go to it!
Cheers!

Funny, just the opposite, I did the same and almost use it in every beer as my base.

I brewed my ever-changing house IPA again and this time has been my favorite.

5 gallon recipe

14 lbs 2 Row

Mash:
95* 20 min, 130* 20 min, 150* 50 min

Cascade Hops:

2oz in the kettle as I am sparging
1oz 60 min
1/2oz 45min
1/2oz 30 min
1oz 15 min
1oz flameout

Ferment @ 68-70 with US-05

After 1 week rack into a keg. Dry hop 1 1/2 oz in a stainless herb ball. Crash it to 33* at 40-45 PSI. Turn it down to 15 PSI and start drinking. Or if you actually have patience let it carb over a week at a lower pressure lol.

Its normally in a glass on the 8th day. Love it, love it.

Curiosity: what changes have you made in earlier versions, and with what results?

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Version 1


11 lbs 2 Row
1 lb C-20

Same mash schedule as above

Cascade:

1oz FWH (In the kettle when I am running IS that a FWH?!?)
2oz 30 min
2oz 15 min
2oz Flame out


Primary 2 weeks US-05 70*
__________________________________

Ver 2


9 lbs 2 row
1 lb C20
1 1/2 lbs White Rice (Just rinsed in a colander with hot water)

Single rest at 150* 60 min

2 Oz FWH
2 Oz @ 30 min
2 Oz @ Flameout

US-05 1 Week
_______________________________
Ver 3




14 lbs 2 Row

Mashed @ 90* 20 min, 120* 20 min, 150* 60 min

2 oz 30 min
2 oz 15 min
2 oz Flameout

No dry hop, no FWH

US-05 1 week


________________________________
Ver 4

City water NO buffers

14 lbs 2 row

90 min rest @ 155*

2oz 60 min
2oz 30 min
2oz 15 min
2oz Flame out

1 1/2 oz dry hopped in the keg

US-05 1 week






Version 4 should have stayed in the keg a lot longer. I don't know if it was the city water or lack of a step mash but the yeast just didn't want to floc out fast.


I am on a quest for fastest and cheapest grain to glass beer and I think I am just about there lol.


That rice beer is something to try. It was my second favorite IPA I have made so far.

Belgian Pilsener and Centennial is lovely, particularly if you use a Belgian yeast strain. Kinda like a Belgian IPA (Stone Cali-Belgie, GD Belgica etc) but slightly herbal and "dank".

Vienna and Perle

Not too heavy on the late hop additions.
