Is it a half IPA? Is it a pale ale? What’s in a name, after all? We’re taking you back to school, back to basics, with this SMASH (single-malt single-hop)-style delight. Not only are we going back to school, we’re hitting the latest in style-confounding marketing-speak: American Session Ale.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts, but it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details

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.

What does smash stand for?

Best Answer: Single Malt and Single Hop - this beer utilizes nothing but Pilsner and Simcoe to make a very hoppy low alcohol pale ale

How do I add the hops after one week on fermentation? Remove the fermenter lid and drop them in? Won't this allow oxygen or bacteria to get in?
Joe Brew on Jun 28, 2015
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.

Brew on.
