    Based on the most popular styles mentioned in this thread...
    https://www.beeradvocate.com/community/threads/another-averagely-perfect-brew.561136/

    ...this poll will determine the style to be built in the 6th Averagely Perfect crowd sourced recipe project. Basically, everyone who posted a preference(s) in that thread got one vote. I split that one vote evenly among each style mentioned by that poster.

    The style that gets the most votes (plurality) wins. If you see your choice doesn't have a shot, but would prefer a different style from the leader(s), feel free to jump ship. The poll will be open for 3 days.

    Here we go.

    Dubbel is my first choice but most of them sound good.

    Quite a few styles where pitching rate will play a factor in the final flavor profile other than off flavors.
    Just an observation.

    I still haven't brewed in a while but do like watching the voting on these.

    I'm voting with spring/summer in mind (when the poll will close and I'll want to brew the recipe), so the higher gravity, obviously seasonal and darker beers are out for my vote...Belgian pale sounds the most tasty to me once it warms up!

    Went with Belgian Pale. I have too many doubles/triples/imperials right now. but i bet dubble will win and am ok with that.

    Dubbel seemed like the fan favorite from the last thread. What is meant by Scottish Ale? Wee Heavy or something a bit lighter?

    When I suggested Scottish Ale in the last thread, I meant it to be wide open, so that folks could vote across a wide spectrum of gravity. My preference would be something about 1.038 OG. But than I saw Belgian Pale Ale on the board and it won my vote. Alas, it looks like dubbel will win easily.

    Since there will not be a runoff, I hope supporters of choices with only a few votes consider switching to either dubbel or bpa.

    One more vote needed for Belgian Pale Ale! Come on, people!

    Dang...who really wants to drink a Dubbel in the heat of the summer?

    @VikeMan Can you consider this a runoff since @jbakajust1 voiced his intent in the above post?!?!?! Pretty, pretty please? :slight_smile:

    Well, if you brew it in the summer and give it a few months to hit its stride, it'll be drinking really nice by the time fall rolls around.

    But them's the rules I guess. You snooze you lose! (Assuming we can't do both or something...)

    Why is everyone talking about summer coming upon us. A dubbel will be ready to drink by the fall!

    There wasn't a tie. Dubbel received a plurality. The rules are the rules.

    I think there was a hanging chad on some of the votes.

    And the winner is Dubbel. I'm not sure when the actual project will get started. Maybe tomorrow if it's a snow day.

    Seeing as how I never made this style I will be sure to include my thoughts on everything :slight_smile:

    Okay BPA peeps, we always have the ability to steer the votes on grains, hops, hop rates, and yeast selection to make this Dubble very BPA like... Low end of Dubbel for gravity and ABV, mid range for FG, lower range for SRM, highest of IBU range. Drive the votes towards no sugar, CaraMunich, and a lower fermentation temp. BAM! We still get our BPA!

    Too late, but I would have voted for BPA over Dubble as well :slight_smile:
