SMASH is about taking things back — way back, to when American Pale Ale was edgy and new. The thing is, time travel is hard, and we’re thinking there’s enough Cascade-only pale stuff out there, so we’re going to use a decidedly new-school single hop: Simcoe.
The pine and jungle stinker herself, Simcoe is boastful and bombastic, packing tons of hop flavor and aroma into a neat little package. SMASH takes a clean, dry malt base, with a low gravity for extra drinkability, and piles on a healthy dose of delicious hoppiness. Think of it as a way to deliver a metric hogshead of hop flavor and aroma in a tidy 4.5% ABV package.

Remove the fermenter lid and drop them in? Won't this allow oxygen or bacteria to get in?Best Answer: That's pretty much it. I added the hops to secondary, but if you are only using primary fermentation add the dry hops the last 4 or 5 days on the fermentation. No oxygen addiction as the co2 biproduct of fermentation is heavier that breathing air and thereby creates a gas shield over your young beer. As far as bacteria you are safe as long as you sanitize your packet and scissors. Hop acids are naturally pretty sanitary and since your beer is already completed fermentation it is a pretty difficult place for bacteria to thrive due to alcohol content. Hope this helps.
