This and many other brews/discussions on HBT gave rise to the term SMaSH.S
It can be done with extract, extract and steep, partial mash and all grain brewing.
The idea is us use it to learn how malt and hop combinations taste.
Here was my first SMaSH recipe. (From 2007)
Following the KISS principle.
Single malt variety
Single hop variety
Single Stage fermentation
