Based on the conversation on the "Maris Otter" thread, I've decided to brew up a Single Malt Single Hops recipe, to give ye olde Maris a kick in the balls. What I'm shooting for is something inherently English Bitter-y. I wanted to favor the malt, as well... I'm not that big a hop head. But the plan is to go with all Maris Otter as a grain bill, and then only use Yakima Goldings (in lieu of their cousins across the pond).

Here's what I've come up with... please do give it a critique, as it's still about three weeks away until I'll actually brew it:

Just made an observation last night.

I've already drank more of the SMaSH than the OktoberFast! I brewed a month prior!

This has to be the best-tasting beer I've brewed yet!

Hehehe, welcome to the obsession. That's how my first SMaSH was, too. (2-Row + Hersbrucker. GREAT stuff.)

After realizing we killed the keg in 1/2 the usual time, I did some Golden Promise + Amarillo. Even better than the first one.

Your recipe looks rock-solid. If it were me, I probably would have done 1.5oz at 5 mins, and then dry-hopped with the remaining 1/2 ounce of Yakky Goldings. (Dem's the same Goldings I have stockpiled in the freezer. I keep them on-hand for Hobgoblin. )

Marris Otter makes a great SMaSH. Simple, clean and everyone seems to like it, BMC drinkers and craftbeer lovers alike.

I find it interesting how you think you get your taste in beer figured out, and then you taste something new that worked better than your previous best. At this rate, I'm going to have to start wearing Depends when I pop open a cold one!

I was surprised at how much body I got out of the Maris Otter. I mashed it a little hot in an attempt towards that end. Sure as hell worked!

SMaSH is the SHiznIT

myself and friends have made quite a few of them.

Vienna + Northern Brewer
Munich + EKG
Belgian Munich + Mt. Hood
Pilsner + Saaz

All of them have been fantastic. i still want to do an all-wheat with tettnanger. i think that would be tasty.

Anyone done an all wheat SmaSh, yet? Someone told me it could not be done. Why, I don't know.
