Default vienna as a base malt

I brewed a vienna lager last weekend and used about 90% vienna malt, has any one else tried using mostly vienna?

I make a Pale with 80%. Turns out real nice. A little more depth than pale malt, but not as toasty as Munich.

I have a recipe that is 80% vienna 20% pils, and its the best beer I make. Some people don't consider vienna and munich as base malts, I am not one of those people!

Any recipes folks? I would love to see them. I am a huge vienna fan. I used it in my wheat beer (5 lbs wheat malt, 2 lbs 2row, 2lbs vienna, hefe iv yeast) and it is fab!

Yooper posted this in the database, I had the original recipe and she made a change or 2 to fit what she had on hand. I think mine was the best beer I have ever made, and yooper enjoyed hers as well. Fizzy Yellow Beer There is a link to the original in that database posting as well!

I knew there was a reason I bought a whole sack of vienna... other than because I could....

Mine is in my recipe dropdown. Pretty simple though, 100% vienna and a hops of your choice. Use an ale yeast like Nottingham if you can't lager.

One of my best recipes has 53% vienna, 27% munich. It's a great all late-hopped amber. The big malty flavors go amazingly with the huge hop flavor.
