It is time for an educational video that looks at SMASH (single malt and single hop) beers.
This video will guide you through designing SMASH beers with key advice around the “do’s and don’ts”. I also put forward why this type of recipe is so useful to those of all experience levels as well as how it can be used as a template for spontaneous brewing. I also include a SMASH beer recipe example of my own for reference.
Here is that recipe:-
