    -> Poll #4 <- determined that the base malt will be Geman Pilsner Malt. From the previous poll, Wheat Malt is possibly in, Munich and/or Vienna Malt(s) are possibly in, and Dextrin Malt (Cara-Foam, -Pils, -Hell) is possibly in, to be determined by a combo poll.

    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, base malt already selected, and malts 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. Pollster reserves the right to cast tie-breaking votes.

    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.

    After an amazing debate, Vienna Malt emerges, advancing to the combo poll. The next poll will determine which Dextrin Malt(s) also go to the combo poll.

    This beer will prove the saying that the devil is in the details. There's a reason a lot of American engineers have a German-to-English technical dictionary on hand. They have what they want to make figured out, everything else is just squabling over the finishing touches that sets you slightly apart.
