    -> Poll #25 <- determined that the target IBUs will be 24 (Tinseth). This poll will determine the amount of hops (100% Styrian Goldings) for the 10 minute addition. If you want an amount that's not listed, write it in. Write-ins need to be clear... if I can't understand what you're saying, or if it's not clear that it's a write-in, it will be ignored. I will be computing a weighted average based on the voting, and then rounding to the nearest 0.05 of an ounce. Once the 10 minute amount is determined, I'll backfit the 60 minute addition to hit a total of 24 Tinseth IBUs. For this purpose, I am assuming 5% Alpha Acids for Styrian Goldings. (And as with other Averagely Perfect recipes, this one will be for 5 gallons into the fermenter.)

    I recommend voting in the context of the already determined fact that this addition is the only flavor/aroma addition and keeping the style in mind.

    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. Lobbying for votes and intelligent discussion of each choice's relative merits is encouraged.

    I voted .95. I think we need to make sure this average dubbel will pull you in with some average hop aromas.

    Guidelines are little to no hop aroma or flavor. And typically none.

    Went with .45 b/c I figured it would average out with .55 votes to .5. I was looking at 2/3rds of hops at 60 minutes and 1/3 at 10. So something like 1.5 oz overall. Of course, it depends on the %AA.

    I agree but I'm not against some underlying flavor and aroma so I went with .25 for just a little.

    I went for .95, because the way I figure, Styrian Goldings isn't too potent of a hop, yeast and malt/syrup character will be competing with the hops, and 3787 will blow out a lot of the hop presence during fermentation

    To me the late hops are a little out of style, so while they might add something nice, I think it's important not to go overboard. I urge everyone to vote for 0.25 ounces or less. To me even half an ounce of hops, and certainly a whole ounce, added late in the boil seems likely to be very noticeable—too noticeable!

    At your urging, went down to 0.25. I brewed 4 dubbels in the past 9 years. None had any aroma additions.
