Default SMaSH help

10# Maris Otter & [Insert your opinion here] hops

I've heard Amarillo was a good choice, and a friend of mine is making that soon...I'd like to try some different hop and compare! So toss me some suggestions!

I just made a all Citra hopped XPA that is tasting really good. I drank half a pint of warm (but quite carb'd) while racking to secondary. Lots of grapefruit/citrus going on, very little bitterness, great malt backbone. Caveat -- this wasn't a single malt.

http://hopville.com/recipe/171554/american-pale-ale-recipes/citra-xpa

All whole leaf 11% AA Citra. I'm going to dry hop an ounce also.

Code:
USE          TIME        OZ
first wort   60+ mins    0.75
boil         20  mins    1.0
boil         10  mins    1.0
aroma         1  min     1.0

EKG or Fuggles.

English base malt + classic English hop. I am about to break into a MO/Whitbread Golding Varieties SMaSH that I did.

I've done the MO & Amarillo twice, and have been very happy with Smasharillo. Lately I've been using alot of Czech Saaz, and I'm curious how that would be in a Smash.

Simcoe would be a great one to try. In fact, I think I'll do that.

IMO use EKG, but toast up a pound or two of that grain in the oven first. S04 for the yeast.

I've always been intrigued by MO-amarillo as a combo also, going to have to try that soon.

Back in September '09 I did a MO/Chinook SMaSH, 11lbs MO and 3oz. Chinook. To be quite honest it's just boring. I still have just under a case left because if there's different cold homebrew I'll grab that instead of the SMaSH.

If I were to do it again, I go with more of a citrus rather than spicy hop.
