So I recently brewed up four one gallon batches of SMaSH batches featuring MO, Rahr 2-Row Pale, Vienna, and Munich. All with some EKG at 60 and 15 and with US-05. Since I've gone this far I was thinking about doing a Golden Promise as well.

I was also thinking about doing another Rahr 2-Row with maybe five percent Biscuit or Victory Malt to see if that would mimic something like the bready and nutty flavors of Maris Otter. Any thoughts on this? Would this come somewhere close or is my thinking off on this one?

Just use a consistent yeast throughout.

I am very interested to hear how this turns out.

yep, EKG hops at 60 and 15 with US-05 on all of them.
Any thoughts on the 2-row biscuit/victory idea anyone?

I've seen brewers ask about mimicing MO with American 2-row and biscuit for years. I think about 10% is what I usually see recommended though. I'd love to see the results.

I haven't done it yet so we'll see what percentage I go for if I find time to make it happen. But that is good to know.

I did this experiment, but the variable in question was hops, not grain... I just ended up making five crappy beers.

Lol, sorry to hear that. I guess your result is something I'm trying to avoid. Down the line I want to do this with hops as well. Maybe just divide up an extract kit into five individual batches.

Well in hindsight, I would rather have done your experiment.

Burger King did it with 12 hops with good results.

I don't see how it could go wrong with proper brewing techniques, sanitation and temp control.
