    Poll #5 determined that Vienna Malt will be advancing to the combo poll, as will Wheat Malt, and at least one Dextrin Malt (Cara-Foam and/or Cara-Pils, and/or Cara-Hell). This poll will determine what Dextrin Malt(s) advance to that combo poll.

    This is a straight plurality poll. 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 fermentables 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.

    I believe any of the specialty malts can die in the upcoming combo polls. Cheers!

    This is like watching most of the lobster races that happen during summer festivities up here...

    That comes after you determine which cara malt you are not voting for.
