Default Best SMaSH recipe you've made???

I was thinking about doing a Vienna and Citra SMaSH with some San Francisco Lager Yeast I have laying around that I need to use up. Just going to test it out as a small batch first and then use the yeast cake for a Baltic Porter.

Just curious as to what your favorite SMaSH recipe has been.

I have only made one SMaSH and it was a Vienna/Northern Brewer SMaSH. It turned out amazing and I want to brew it again using the SF Lager yeast. I just brewed up a Baltic Porter with that yeast and it's great too. That yeast is now my house yeast.

I've only used it the one time on a California Common but it was amazing. I got unexpectedly great attenuation from it and a terrifically smooth beer. I may keep washing and saving for a few more batches if this one turns out as well.

I did a simple IPA with a single hop. Columbus: very good. Yeast was 001. Made three such brews using different hops. Columbus was the most memorable. All late additions.

10lbs Weyermann Bohemian Pilsner Malt
4oz Czech Saaz Hops (FWH, 60, 10, 2)
Urquell yeast

The FG sample was so good, I made a second batch before the first one was done lagering. And now that is almost gone. Sigh.

Marris Otter is downright delicious. Nice dry, bready, toasty aftertaste.

My MO/Columbus IPA SMaSH came out incredible, drinking one right now.

RO water + 4gm CaCl2 + 1gm CaSO4
10lb Briess Pils
Double decoction 131-155-165ºF
1.5oz leaf German Spalt Select 5.6% @60
1.5oz leaf German Spalt Select 5.6% @10
Wyeast 2308 @50ºF

I've done this one 5 times now, with some variations:
Batch 1: as above
Batch 2: Bittered with 3.5% Crystal pellets. Not as good, a little citrus and apple.
Batch 3: Pitched a little warm. Tropical fruit esters didn't calm down until the hops had nearly faded.
Batch 4: Bin at Whole Foods marked Briess Pils (yes, the WF here sells HB supplies (and has a beer bar inside!)) turned out to contain what I guess was Light Munich. This batch was higher gravity (13 lbs malt) and bitterness (3 oz 4% SS @60) and drinks like an Arrogant Bastard lager.
Batch 5: CMC Pils malt and more bittering than above recipe. Actively fermenting now.
