Also, Thomas Fawcett Malting produces a few other old-fashioned British malts that could be used for a SMaSH, each made from single varietal barleys that have their own characteristics. Halcyon I found to be fairly neutral. Pearl was pretty bland IMO, but Optic was quite good, with a lovely aroma. My first move when I made the jump to all-grain was several small-batch SMaSHes with various British malts and Fuggles. I didn't know that they were called SMaSH at the time, just seemed like a good way to introduce myself to various malts.
I'm tired of typing 'SMaSH'.

No, that sounds awful. I shudder at the very thought. I'm not a big fan of wheat though except in small doses.

Had a guy bring a 100% wheat beer into the shop one day. Didn't end well.

I can't imagine it would.

I would like to try rye. I imagine it would be very, very spicy.

You can not use Crystal, etc.etc.

3.) A list of as many hops as can be imagined.

I know all this information is out there. I was just thinking of a STARTING point. Sort of a "You want to try a SMaSH? Start Here."
I think it's a good idea. There should be a sticky thread about SMaSHes. A table of grains categorized by which can convert themselves, which can't, and which might need some help. Also, descriptions of the flavor profile of each grain, for ones that people have tried, especially the unsucessful attempts. Some grains may be bland, but might be a good way to get a clean taste for a certain hop variety. A wiki page perhaps, where people could continuously update with results.

Any one can compile a wiki page.

I Think you'll find there is already a stub.
