    -> Poll #22 <- determined that the fermentation temperature will be 62F. This poll will determine the boil length.

    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 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. Pollster reserves the right to cast (or not) tie breaking votes.
