i've been reading about "SMaSH" recipies lately and have been considering doing something like that. as usual, when i've got an idea in mind Zymurgy will have an article in the next addition. with that article in mind, does anyone have any additional trial-and-error or success-story tips they'd care to share with a SMaSH recipe?
i'm looking to highlight the grain with a mild hoppy accent rather than the other way around. sounds like Marris Otter is a popular choice for lighter pale ales and ipa's, but without modifying any of the grain on my own, i'm wondering specifically what might work for a somewhat darker, sweeter ale (possibly even a lager - considering the cold michigan winters i've been enduring lately).
thanks, in advance, for any input.
