Default Vienna Sub

Looking to brew a Xingu type dark american lager... the CloneBrews recipe calls for 1/2 lb. of Vienna, which of course, I don't have, and no LHBS nearby.

I do however have Munich, Maris Otter, and Pilsen.

Would it be best to sub the 0.25 lb of Munich w/ 0.25 lb Maris Otter? Or, w/ 0.25 Pilsen? Or some other combination?

I be inclined to do maybe 2/3 MO and 1/3 Munich given what you have on hand. In my limited experience with Vienna it doesn't seem as robustly malty as Munich and closer to a rich pale malt.

It is only 0.5 lbs. I would replace it with Munich.

I'd go Munich/Maris Otter given what you have on hand. It won't really be the same, but beer is an adventure and it will taste good anyway I'll bet.

Missed that it was only 1/2 lb. Makes my thirds breakdown a little silly. I'm with weirdboy, I'd just do the Munich/MO combo and call it a day.
