    -> Poll #26 <- determined that the 10 minute Hop Addition (Styrian Goldings) will be 0.5 oz. This poll will determine recommended boil length. I don't think we've ever polled boil length before, but it might not be a bad idea. Note: This will be labelled as "recommended" in the final recipe.

    I will be computing a weighted average (excluding any outliers) based on the voting, and then rounding to the nearest time divisible by 15 minutes.

    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.

    Weighted average is 67.5, which is precisely halfway between 60 and 75. Since the final result will be rounded to the nearest time divisible by 15 minutes, there's no point in a runoff between 60 and 75, as 60 already has a large majority in this poll.

    60 minute recommended boil it is.
