Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Wyeast #1768-PC   
Yeast Starter: 3L   
Batch Size (Gallons): 6.5   
Original Gravity: 1.066   
Final Gravity: 1.016   
IBU: 40.2   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 6.5   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21   
Additional Fermentation: NO   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): NO   
Tasting Notes: Smooth with a slight flavor of warm toast coming through. Well balanced with EKG.   

15# [96.8%] Pale Malt, Maris Otter
0.5# [3.2%] Crystal Maris Otter
1.00oz East Kent Goldings [7.20% AA] - 60 min - 19.5 IBU
1.00oz East Kent Goldings [7.20% AA] - 15 min - 9.7 IBU
1.00oz East Kent Goldings [7.20% AA] - 10 min - 7.1 IBU
1.00oz East Kent Goldings [7.20% AA] - 5 min - 3.9 IBU

Mash at 150F for 60 minutes at 1.29 water/grain ratio
Sparge with balance of volume at 168F

Chill to 54F, oxygenate with pure O2, then pitch yeast and let ferment for three weeks. Transfer to keg, carbonate over two weeks (at serving pressure) to 2.2 CO2 volumes and enjoy. I was thinking about dry hopping the second 3 gallon keg of this brew, but the first keg was so good that I just couldn't. If you do decide to dry hop, go with approximately 1oz of EKG whole hops per 3 gallons of finished beer, in keg (if you keg), as you're about to place it into the keezer/kegorator/brew fridge. This will give you better hop flavor/aroma (IMO).

The crystal MO is from Rebel Brewer and is a great compliment to the regular Maris Otter base malt.

Goes extremely well with pretty much all foods, as well as by itself. At 6.6-6.7% ABV, it will warm you slightly, but has no harsh alcohol flavors. Bitterness is also rather mellow, with more flavors coming through.

Hey GoldDiggie- I'm doing my first MO SMaSH this wknd. I'm using 10# MO and was thinking 1oz EKG @ 60, 1/2oz [email protected], 1/2oz EKG @5... What do you think about this recipe/plan? Pretty similar to yours, tho not as big. I'm trying to make a good, sessionable English pale that might appeal to the slim regiment of BMC drinkers at my wedding... Basically, I got 10# MO, 2oz EKG...I WILL make good beer, but perhaps you have suggestions as to my hop schedule...?
Hit Me!!

I really like how mine came out with the hop amounts. How many IBUs will you be getting from your hop additions? I would move the 20 minute to 15 minutes.

I'm in flux due to getting ready to move. But, I'm planning on making another batch of MO SMaSH once I've landed someplace. I'm thinking either another 9 gallons into kegs, or maybe push it up to 12 gallons (fill 4 kegs).

BTW, which yeast are you looking to use?? That will also impact how the brew comes out. Especially with so few ingredients in it.

I'm gonna use S04. It makes me happy. I guess it's Go English! or Go Somewhere Else...? But I've really been pleased with S04. Been making a smoked cherry ale with MO all summer & S04 seems to dry it out enough but kinda leaves the cherries alone, a bit, which I like. The cookie crust mouthfeel & washout from the MO is awesome! Its quite a nice beer. outside w/ friends hovering over some rad pork or chicken on the grill! I will change that 20 to 15, tho. Sorry, I just can't stop talking about that beer! Thanx, Gold!

Hey Gold! Thanks for the encouragement on that MO SMaSH brew. Turned out awesome! Well, so far anyway... Brewed on Sunday with 10# MO & 2oz EKG. Single step mash at 152*F/60 mins, batch sparge, FWH 1oz EKG, [email protected] min, [email protected] min. Only 2 days in primary w/ S04 @ 60-65*f ambient & already tastes amazing! Pretty dang clear, too. No need to dry hop as that 15 & 5 really puts it in there up front. Definately making this one again real soon. BrewOn, Bro!

Just wait until it's in the glass. I have one keg still untapped of it (I use 3 gallon kegs) and plan to have it on tap as soon as possible once I've moved. I'm not sure if the keg that's on tap now will last until I move (starting on the 15th).

Not sure what your yeast choice will do to/for the brew, but it's almost impossible to go wrong with MO and EKG.

Hell's Yeah! I hope your move goes smoothly and you can rebuild your nest accordingly. Pretty stoked to carb this bad ride up & give it all away soon. I've been pleased with resulting taste of S04 & it's clean & clear in a week. Did a couple gravity/taste tests this eve with the MO SMaSH, among others, S04 & 05, and I'm once again pleased with my system and process. Not perfect or ideal but I'm getting good clean ferments quickly w/ no starter, no temp control as its perfect ambient temps to ferment beer if starting in the +50's/-60's right now in my basement. I digress... Cheers!

I'll be getting temperature readings from the basement where I'm moving to once I've started to move in. That way I'll know if/when I'll need to do anything for the batches. I plan on brewing another batch of MO SMaSH shortly after moving all my brewing gear there. It will be at least enough to fill two kegs, if three or four of them. It's going to be nice to have a basement I'll be able to use for brewing/fermenting.

Basements rule. Especially insulated, clean painted basements. Good luck in the move, Gold
You'll be pleased, I'm sure.

Brewed this today with a couple modifications -- used London Ale (WY1028) as a sub since LHBS didn't have the strain you used, used a typical Crystal malt and had to modify the hop schedule due to significant difference in AAU(2oz at 60 minutes, 1 oz at 15 minutes and 1 oz at 5 minutes.) Smelled great, hit 1.070 as SG- am hoping to get better attenuation out of these yeast than anticipated, otherwise I'll have a 1.021 FG and that's a bit sweet for me.

Can''t wait to see how this turns out!
