Hi guys,
So it's been along time since I purchased my robobrew 35l. Unfortunately due to work commitments I haven't been able to use it yet!
I have a 25kg bag of Maris otter and some cascade and mosaic hops.
Does anyone have a basic tried smash?
Cheers.

Simple. 100% Maris Otter. Cascade @ 60min to about 20 IBU, then Cascade & Mosaic at 5 or 10 min to about another 15 IBU. Dry hop later with either or both as you desire or not. WY1272 or similar.

I thought SMaSH was supposed to stand for Single Malt and Single Hop? If you use Cascade and Mosaic surely it wouldn’t qualify as smash?

So to my thinking a good recipe would be 100% Maris Otter and use either the Cascade or the Mosaic to the IBU you desire?

Yup, you're correct, but let's not nitpick. The main purpose of a SMaSH,as I understand it, is to learn what single ingredients bring to a beer.
OP didn't explain why it had to be a SMaSH. No reason he/she couldn't brew with either of those hops or in combination. For me, using the 2 hops would make for a more complex and enjoyable beer.

OP didn't explain why it had to be a SMaSH but I just assumed from the thread title and his/her post that’s what was wanted. Totally agree there is no reason at all not to use both hops and even home roast some of the Maris otter to make for a more complex beer.

Great for hot days.

I have done a MO and Mosaic smash a number of times now and it's great.

I aim for around 1.050, ONLY hopstand hops to 35-40 IBU (at 90c for 20min), and last batch I used San Diego WLP090 with a pretty decent dry hop post fermentation (3 days total prior to kegging - one day at ferm temps, 2 days cold crash with CO2 rousing). Huge mango in your face.

Hops that do very well alone: Mosaic in APAs (as in BKBrews instructions) and especially NEIPAs, Challenger in English pale, Saaz or Loral in blonde ales and lagers. MO would not be to style in a lager, but who knows?a

Thanks guys! I can't wait until work slows a little and I can get one of these made. Yeah thinking about 39 IBU or close to. I haven't yet worked out the additions but will do. Appreciate the comments :)
