Anyone have a really good or an award winning SMaSH recipe to share? Looking to brew tomorrow, would like some ideas... :D :drink:

Redwing, that's almost all I have been brewing since I started with the BM in November. I use 10-12# (4.5-5.5kg) of Briess 2 row and playing with different hops. I just did one this morning with an overnight mash.
My hops...The last three have been most unusual. Austin HomeBrew sells hops dust that they call "Magic Hop Dust". When they get their hops in and repack them into the one ounce (28g) bags it makes a big mess on the table. They scoop up all the dust from all the different type of hops, mix it all up, and sell them in one ounce bags as a "grab bag" sort of thing. Not award winning but fun to make.
I have made a Kent Golding, and a Cascade SMaSH. Each used three one ounces additions at 60,15,05

All been at least OK and some have been good.
Good luck....

I'm thinking of using Pacific Jade because of it's amazing aroma. Not sure how it will work as a bittering hop, I'll look into it.

I used 3x 20 grams Pacific Jade in my first BM brew ever (just to get to know the device).

65 minutes boil, hops added for 60, 30 and 10 minute boiling.

I only used 5 kg of pilsner malt and some white sugar to up the ABV% (to 6.2). Used Muntons yeast to ferment at 20°C.

Turned out fine (not a great bear but a nice one) except for foam stability, quite hoppy with a gentle aroma (but that could be because my PJ hops were quite old).

Thank you all. I may try some of your suggestions. Yesterday I brewed using 7% Crystal 40 and 93% Breiss 2-Row w/Northern Brewer hops @90 @60 @30 so it wasn't exatly a SMaSH. Bubbling away right now although I missed my target gravity of 1.050 to 1.049.
