Default What Styles Can Be Made by SMaSH?

Howdy,

I have a lot of Marris Otter as well as a pound each of Nugget, Cascade, Galena, Williamette, Columbus and Centennial.

I'm not averse to toasting some of the MO.

What can I make besides a cream ale or IPA?

Thanks for any/all ideas.

Barleywine with a looooooong boil and maybe some kettle caramelization?

I've got a Barleywine in the works. I plan to brew a pale ale with the yeast I need and then pitch onto the yeast cake so I don't have to do the 6L starter recommended on Mr. Malty. I like where you're going with this, though.

The SmaSH is to get an extract brewing friend introduced to BIAB. I'm bringing the equipment to his place so I want to follow the KISS principal.

Enough MO to get the gravity in the 1070 range. Williamette, cascade or nugget at 60, 15 and 5 to get you to around 30 IBUs. WLP 550. I'd add about 5-10% table sugar too, but that would ruin the SMaSH concept.

Looks pretty good; what's with the two 60 minute hop additions? I don't care much for 30 minute additions. I'd go 60, 15 and 5 on my typical tripel. I'd personally mash lower, say 150F as the target temperature, since I like my tripels bone dry and "digestible." Aside from that, looks fine -- on the way to producing a complex and interesting ale with shocking few ingredients.

You can make loads of styles.

You might consider making an attempt at steeping some barley malt in a very, very stiff mash, without crushing the grain or fracturing the husks; so that, they convert their starch inside their shell.

Then set them in the oven to crystallize those sugars.

The hop additions were just clerical errors entering into BeerSmith. I changed it to 1 oz of Nugget at 60, 15 and 5 for 34 IBU's. Reset mash temp to 150.

Sounds good.

I need to experiment with this. Sounds interesting.
