    -> Poll #9 <- determined that Special B and Caramunich will both advance, inseparably along with D-90, to a future combo poll that will feature at least one ingredient from "Munich and/or Vienna Malt(s)" and at least one ingredient from "Aromatic/Aroma Malt."

    This poll will determine what Munich and/or Vienna Malt(s) advance to that combo poll.

    You can select more than one choice. The #1 overall choice will automatically advance to compete further. Beyond that, any other choices that get votes from at least 30% of respondents will advance to another poll to determine the exact combination (if any) that joins #1 in advancing. Want something that's not listed? Write it in (as long as it can reasonably be considered a Vienna or Munich Malt). If your first choice is losing badly, consider jumping to a similar choice that has more votes.

    I recommend you think about this in terms of not only your personal preferences, but also in the context of the ABV and Final Gravity (and thus the attenuation) already selected, malt already selected, and malts and syrup still possible, as well as any possible yeast strain selection that might be kicking around in your head.

    This poll will be open for 48 hours.

    If you have issues with or suggestions for methodologies used in this project, please send them via beermail. Let's keep the threads themselves on topic to the question at hand and not about how you would have asked the question differently.

    No. The category of Munich and/or Vienna Malt(s) had already qualified for the upcoming combo poll. The current poll decides which specific one(s) advance to that poll. If you want neither munich nor vienna, the combo poll is your chance to kill it/them.

    As it stands now we will have a runoff between 6L munich and 9L dark munich. If you dont want any munich in the final recipe, please vote for the frontrunner and avoid a runoff.

    I did a Dubbel once with 35% Dark Munich and a touch of Special B and Special Roast. It was the peanuts, guys. Casted my vote for Dark Munich.

    Seems like Vienna and Light Munich ought to reach a compromise. Dark Vienna, anyone?

    Vienna won't win because it doesn't get nearly the same degree of love from homebrew celebrities.

    I love Vienna, but I typically only use it in lighter styles like Saison for added malt complexity.

    I think everyone has their own patterns of recipe formulation, their own style. If Pilsner malt + Vienna, then would have to have a good amount of Special B/Aromatic or other dark specialty grain.

    Crystal 120 anyone?

    Dont forget we will get a good bit of color from the D90

    Ok. Dark Munich (~9L) advances to the fermentables combo poll. Vienna (~3L) might accompany it (inseparably), depending on the outcome of a runoff poll (next).
