Default Vienna as base for triple/belgian ale?

I am out of pilsen and two row right now....have 40 pounds of vienna to burn though. Also, have a few packs of belgian wit, trappist high grav and belgian saison yeast sitting around. So, I am thinking something like this

20 pounds vienna
4 pounds clear inverted sugar
1 oz magnum at 60
2 oz glacier at 5
mash at 149


will the vienna totally throw this beer out of line? I am thinking it could be a nice beer, but I have been wrong before

I got good result with vienna as a base malt in dubbel (+ some sugar and pinch of Special B). Proven by 3rd place in regional competition.

Won't be a tripel, but probably a good beer. More along the lines of a VMO beer, but a Belgian yeast might make it interesting.

I think it would turn out great, just don't plan on entering any competitions. FWIW, I've used Vienna as the base for a saison with a couple of pounds of rye to round out the grain bill and loved it.

Nice! I have four pounds of rye sitting around as well.

I ended up making exactly 2 pounds and 12 ounces of clear inverted sugar rocks (wife will be happy when she finds all sugar in house is gone), and today i will decide on yeast strain.

I may end up making this a multigrain, belgian style ale of sorts to give the wyeast belgian saison strain its first spin at my place.

16 vienna
3 rye
1 oats
2 #12 oz clear candi rocks
20 IBU magnum at 60
Boat load of glacier at flameout
Belgian saison yeast

Pitch at 70, ferment at 70 for 3-4 days and then ramp this baby up into the eighties (or however warm my garage is).

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I make a simple vienna and rye blonde. It's delicious.
