I just bought a s*** load of nugget and did two brews so far. One extract and one all grain, both single hop nugget. Both came out awesome. Definitely a fan of the nugget hops now.

I agree. I have a few all cascade recipes that I really enjoy. I've made a few all grain batches with only pale ale malt and cascade, and they were great. I've also made a few extract only batches with all cascade and they were equally good. I call these extract batches my "simple ______" beers. I have a simple lager, a simple session lager, a simple saison, and a simple session amber that are made with only cascade and extract. I also follow the same hop schedule for each of these simple recipes, which is equal additions of cascade at 60, 30, and 15 minutes. If I feel like it, I'll dry hop, but since I like these to be simple batches that can be ready to drink quickly, I usually skip the dry hopping. I only adjust the hop quantities for the bitterness ratio I'm shooting for.

What would be recommended for a Vienna smash that has a malty taste,more grain than hops. I want to brew 1 gallon Vienna and northern brewer hops. Would like it light and malty. I plugged some values into beersmith as such 1.6 lbs Vienna, 3- .05 northern brewer hop additions at 60,30,5min. It keeps the hops under 20ibu,light color,and hopefully malty flavor. Let me know what ya think. For clean finish better to use Nottingham or s04?

Sounds good to me. I did a Maris Otter/Northern Brewer sMasH that came out awesome. It was more of an ESB than anything but I used quite a bit of hops to around 40ibu. I used s-04 for the first time and it is now my go to yeast for malty or British style beers. Notty will give you a drier/crisper finish for sure.

IMHO s-04 will serve you better if you're looking for more malt/less hops.

I just bottled a Vienna/Amarillo/Nottingham SMASH this evening. The sample was darn tasty for being flat and green.

This was my test batch for the E-BIAB rig I had finished a few weekends ago. I was guesstimating an efficiency of 68% and ended up getting 75%, so it came in at 7.2% ABV. The one ounce (60 min) of Amarillo is still noticeable, but the bitterness is subtle.

So I had the idea of trying a SMaSH batch, and was looking at using Vienna malt with Centennial hops and had the thought - before I go making grapefruit flavored dumplings, why not check out what some of the other members did.

Below is the sum of this thread, using posts that said they either have done this combination, or were thinking of this combination.

Malt and Hop Combos - Number of times mentioned

Vienna
Northern Brewers 5
Simeco 4
Amarillo 4
Cascade 3
Galaxy 3
Centennial 2
Citra 1
Hallertau 1
Chinook 1
Ultra 2011 1
Galena 1

2 Row Pale
Cascade 3
Columbus 1
Summit 1
Citra 1
Nelson Sauvin 1
Mosaic 1

Marris Otter
Cascade 5
Amarillo 5
Columbus 3
Kent-Goldings 3
Fuggles 2
Centennial 2
Northern Brewers 2
Galaxy 1
Chinook 1
Nugget 1
Sorachi 1
Citra 1
Mosaic 1
Saaz 1
Styrian 1

Pilzner
Saaz 3
Spalt 1
Cascade 1
Sterling 1

Munich or Munich II
Kent-Goldings 2
Northern Brewers 1
Hallertau 1
Millenium 1

Crystal 120
Cluster 1

Golden Promise
Citra 1

The clear winners are Marris Otter malt, one I've never used before, and Vienna malt, which I just used for the first time in my last batch.

Marris Otter had 15 different hop combinations for a total of 30 batches, while Vienna had 11 combos for 26 batches.

Cascade used 12 times and Amarillo use 9 times, were the most used hops, followed by Northern Brewers and Kent Goldings

Very nice.
