    -> Pol #30 <- determined that the Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic will be used for the Traditional (aka post fermentation) Dry Hop addition. This poll will determine the hop quantities for this addition. In this poll you should click on three checkboxes... one choice for each hop variety. If you choose not to vote for any quantity for one or more of the hop varieties, you're letting everyone else decide for you. Do not click on more than one choice for each hop. If you want an amount that's not listed for a particular hop (which is somewhat likely, given the limited space for poll choices), write it in, and don't click a checkbox for that particular hop. Write-ins need to be clear... if I can't understand what you're saying, or if it's not clear that it's a write-in, it will get ignored. I will be computing weighted averages based on the voting, and then rounding to the nearest quarter of an ounce for each hop. I recommend voting in the context of the already determined fact that this addition is one of four flavor/aroma additions.

    For those looking ahead, the next poll will take a look at fermentation temperature.

    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.
