    Poll #13 <- determined that flavor/aroma hops will be limited to German varieties.

    This poll will narrow the field further. You can vote for more than one hop. The top vote getter will be in (assuming the hop timing poll determines there will be flavor/aroma hops). None, one, or both of the next two varieties may be in, depending on the result of a poll that will determine just that (i.e. whether to add either/both/neither of them to the #1 hop). Note: for either of #2/#3 hops to advance from this poll, they each need to have received votes from at least 33% of respondents. Want a German hop that's not listed? Write it in. Pollster reserves the right to cast (or not) tie-breaking votes.

    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 PM. Let's keep the threads themselves on topic to the question at hand and not about how you would have asked the question differently.

    Ok, Hallertau Mittelfrüh will be a flavor/aroma hop, assuming the hop timing poll results in any. Also, Tettnang might join Hallertau Mittelfrüh. Next poll will determine that.
