personally I'd move some of that cascade to the end of the boil instead of 3 in at the 60 minute mark.

Maybe

1.5oz at 60 min
.5oz at 15 min
2oz at flameout

should give you a better aroma and flavor imo

Have one in primary that is similar.

4.5 lbs 2 row.
1.5 lbs 2 row toasted. 45 minutes at 275

.25 Columbus at 60min
.25 Columbus at 10min

3 gallons.
Wyeast 1056

It was a spur of the moment change since it was raining and I didn't want to do my Red Ale recipe in the garage. Switched to BIAB in the kitchen.

Can't wait to find out how this went!

I recently did a recipe very close to the OP,

#9 2-row
#1 c60

magnum to bitter
cascade for flavor and aroma
s-04 as well


I know mine isn't a SMaSH, but I really enjoyed it.
kegged 8 days after boil, and kicked the keg a week after that!

Very interested how yours turns out, keep it posted!

same here, was supposed to have a big brew day tomorrow and it's supposed to rain all day so when I get my recipe I got some extra for tonight.

think I might do like suggested and bump up the flameout. Maybe up to 1oz.

I make a beer very similar to this with just two row, toasted tow row and Columbus. It is a house favorite. I am always surprised at how a little toasting in the oven adds a depth to the flavor that is sometimes lacking in a regukar SMaSH. That, and columbus is fantastic.

OP: Your smash recipe is pretty much what my first smash recipe was...turned out great! On second try I roasted about 2 pounds right before dough in,,,was great as well...when I read about the crazy ingredients and processes others try, often with less than stellar results, I can't help but think that new brewers should start with a basic recipe and process and build from that. Restraint is an art form in and of itself...

I would even consider .5 oz cascade dry hopped. I just did a 2 row and centennial SMASH and a 2 row and centennial, Chinook and cascade ipa. I called it a SMACCC. Single malt and 3 C's. The ipa is by far the best beer I have ever made. I really enjoyed the smash as well. Let us know how yours turns out.

Don't mean to be an a@@hat, but how see yours to be similar to the OP's brew? They might be similar in terms of style, both might be considered American pale ales. But different hops, different IBUs, and and different yeast and home roasted malt? Different beers, totally. OP's brew with 3 oz at 60 is going to be a bitter beer. Yours, with that toasty malt, will probably be a lot more balanced. Have the OP send you a bottle and I think you'll see that these are two totally different beers.
