SMaSH 6 – El Dorado

Our past President, Mark Easton selected El Dorado as the mystery hop for this brew. Congratulations to our winner: Mathew Geltzeiler.

Since El Dorado is so new we did mention that, as a hint. The following four people demonstrated they have well refined taste. They correctly guessed the mystery hop for Mystery SMaSH 6 is El Dorado. Great job!

  • ·         Mathew Geltzeiler – first guess
  • ·         Christina Budde – second guess
  • ·         Jared Seanus King – second guess
  • ·         Ryan Ward – second guess

Thank you all for making the Mystery SMaSH 6 a big success. We had 36 forms turned in, a big jump from 6 turned in for SMaSH 5. There were 87 guesses for the hop and 191 descriptions filled out! The graphs and data should be showing up on the Education Page soon.

Some of the popular guesses were.

Mosaic - 8 guesses
Citra - 7 guesses
HBC 342 - 5 guesses
Eldorado - 4 guesses
Simcoe - 4 guesses

The most popular descriptor categories were:

Large Fruit - 21
Citrus - 19
Vegetable – 15
Small Fruit - 14


Come out to the March meeting and guess the mystery hop for SMaSH 7! It was selected by and brewed by Will Minderhout. He had won Mystery SMaSH 5 by correctly guessing the mystery hop was Nelson Sauvin.


Mathew Geltzeiler (winner of SMaSH 6) has selected the mystery hop and malt for Mystery SMaSH 8, to be served at the 2013 April meeting. In case you didn’t catch that, there will be both a mystery hop and a mystery malt for the April meeting.

Other news is that Jacob Strohmaier volunteered to brew this, which was done on Monday. It is bubbling away as I write. Thank you Jacob!
