How to Brew a Single-Malt, Single-Hop IPA at Home (And Why You Should Try It)
Unfortunately, many homebrew recipes can get complicated, leading to muddled beer and crushed expectations. The solution? Keep it simple with SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop).
By focusing on just two ingredients, you can filter out the other "noise" and learn your Centennials from your Chinooks and your Munich malt from your Vienna. You'll know exactly what each ingredient tastes like, and learning those flavor and aroma characteristics on their own will help you tweak recipes with more components later on.
