Can you smash with something like chocolate malt, or does it need to be one of the base malts?

You want a base malt. Chocolate doesnt have very much fermentable sugar left after being roasted. It would make for a very unfermentable wort.

I've definitely been thinking about doing something along these lines, and after reading through the thread (and seeing how many great beers people are ending up with), I'm definitely convinced that's my next project. What I'm thinking though, is doing a handful of 6-pack AG brews, and having different single hops in each with the same grain bill, which would let me compare the different hops in a standard format

I was thinking the same thing. All my beer has been made by following someone ease's recipe. Making a batch of something and then making a change in one ingredient would give me a much better understanding of what I am doing. Breaking a batch into 1 gallon sub batches seems about right. Or maybe just into a half batch.

Well, I hate to wake a sleeping giant, but I figured I'd kick this thread into gear again as I made myself a nice 5 gal batch of MO/Fuggles SMaSH last night. I received a delivery of fresh, locally grown, organic hops yesterday (rain-barrell watered!) and I figured I should really do the fuggles justice and showcase them purely.
My recipe is almost the same as Orfy's but I added a 0.5oz aroma hop inclusion at 0min:

11lb Maris Otter
1oz Fuggles (60min)
1oz Fuggles (45min)
1oz Fuggles (30min)
1oz Fuggles (15min)
0.5oz Fuggles (pellets were all I had left) (0min)

Mash temp 158F for about 1h20min.
Boil for 60 min.

I was brewing until about 3 am because my mash tun kept getting jammed up. I ended up having to suck on the hose to get enough liquid out... it was a sad state of affairs, but I wasn't going to let my 2 hours of grinding go out the window. I ended up with a really nice boil, so my fingers are crossed that this will turn out!

RO water + 4gm CaCl2 + 1gm CaSO4
10lb Briess Pils
Double decoction 131-155-165F
1.5oz leaf German Spalt Select 5.6% @60
1.5oz leaf German Spalt Select 5.6% @10
Wyeast 2308 @50F

Makes a great German Pilsner that tastes a lot like Trumer.
