I like the idea of toasting the grains.
I have a MO and Fuggles barley wine/bitter partigyle planned for my next brew. Was going to throw in a bit of crystal too though.

Get some crystal MO...

I've made it a point to always have my MO/EKG SMaSH brew/recipe available (on tap or soon to be). The keg that's in waiting was mashed a bit higher than the last batch (154 this time) which should add a bit more body and malt backbone to it. The sample I tasted when I kegged it was damned good. Hop bursting it means I still have a good amount of flavor and aroma hops even after two months from brewing.

I bought Thomas Faucett & Sons crystal II and a half sack of MO. Should be good.

I don't believe that's actually made with Maris Otter (the crystal II). If it is, can you provide documentation to back it up? It would be nice if they made all their British Crystal Malts with MO.

I have no idea if it is or isn't made with MO. I meant that I bought both in bulk. I will use both in my next brew.

The crystal is much maltier than domestic crystal and it made a good addition to a pale that I just brewed this past month.

That's the only crystal I use (the ones from TF) except for crystal MO. I'm using all British base malts and as many other malts as I can get. Which means all but one (honey) malt.

That being said, unless the crystal malt is made with MO, you won't have a SMaSH recipe/brew.

I'll second that. Made a 3gal BIAB with:
7lb.s MO
3.25oz Cascade
1056

The flavor and aroma were great- might be my favorite batch yet! I'm actually almost out of this one. Wanted to make some more, but I might have to try the MO/Columbus...

My favorite is either vienna-hallertau fermented with WLP550 or Thomas Fawsett MO and EKG standard bitter. Both were do drinkable and do flavorful.

The first SMaSH I brewed this past summer was Vienna, Cascade and s05 which came out great. Probably my 2nd favorite batch out of the 14 5g all grain batches I've brewed.

Gonna brew another one today with Vienna and either Apollo, Bravo, or Falconers Flight ( i know, technically not 1 hop but..) and s05. I havent decided which to use yet and probably wont til its time for my fwh.
