I was thinking about a SMASH, but I'm not sure what hops to add. Would a SMASH be a waste of this malt?

Need some help here people.

I'd mash it with 0.5 lbs of british crystal, bitter to 40 IBU and add a nice finishing addition of EKG. Ferment with a good english yeast and you'll have an awesome beer. Following this or a similar approach will give you what I feel is a beer that highlights the base malt but enhances it with supporting flavors.
I'm too lazy and have too many beers going to keep updating this!

I've done several smash recipies with MO.
They are some of my favorite beers.

This is definitely a good malt for a smash, since its so flavorful by its self.

My favorites include ones with ekg, and a batch with Centennial. The ekg was about 35 ibu and the centennial batch was inspired by two hearted, and hopped like an ipa, to around 65 ibu. I use wlp 007.

You can't go wrong here really doing a smash with some mo in my opinion, by far my favorite malt.

Best of luck!

I'd add some crystal and possibly some specialty malt or adjunct with a bunch of my favorite hops to make a 1.060+70 IPA.
Everything is better with a beer.

I did my MO smash with Perle hops and US-05. Very floral and nice. I really liked it.
