Doing some SMASH (single malt and single hop) would be a great idea, you really get to know the flavors of the ingredients that way.

Great information orfy!

Brewed my first all grain this weekend, and it was a SMaSH!

10 lbs. Maris Otter (OG 1.056)
4 oz US Goldings (1 oz at 60, 30, 15, 0)
S-04 pitched dry.

It's fermenting nicely on day three. I'm considering dry-hoping with an ounce as well if my gravity sample seems light on hops.

Great idea!
Hmmm... Pale Castle malt and Styrian golding at 60, 20 and flame out. I might do that right now! The quickest I've ever made a recipe!

I never knew what it meant either. Great idea though. I'll give it a try for my next batch.

I have a lot of extra Munich and was thinking of using it with Hallertau and 2206 yeast for a lager SMaSH. Any thoughts?

If the 2 row was he same as the LME then yes.
But give it a go anyway and see how it turns out. It'll help you learn.

I'm going to do a vienna/centennial SMaSH and wonder...does 1-3% acidulated malt added to overcome pH issues still count as a SMaSH?

My personal favorite:

10 lbs Vienna Malt
1 oz Northern Brewer (8.8%AA) @ 60 min
1 oz Northern Brewer (8.8%AA) @ 20 min
1 oz Northern Brewer (8.8%AA) @ 5 min
Nottingham yeast

Best beer I've ever brewed.

Making a SMASH beer is a great way to get acquainted with a particular base malt or single hop variety. Be careful or you might get SMASHED!
