For SMASH, Vienna or Maris Otter works well for the grain. Try to figure out what hops trip your trigger. Find a commercial beer you like, look it up online and most companies will tell you what hops they put in their beer. If you have a Local Homebrew shop(LHBS) in your area, look at the hop bags to see what flavor and aroma characters are listed on the bag. I did a vienna/Centennial beer that was really good, to me. But I like the citrusy hops. Quite a few of my recipes have cascade(my favorite) hops, even my honey wheat recipe.
