The SRM is really low on this, shouldn't you add like 2oz of black patent or something to get a slightly darker vienna color?

If you're looking to brew totally to style you probably should. I don't have much interest in that myself as it adds nothing to the flavour in this case.

When I'm trying to brew one to style I use a little Carafa Special II (i.e. dehusked, ~410 SRM). I think my last one used 1.5 oz but it had some dark munich too.

Brewed this a while back. Drank it pretty fast. Added some carapils i had left over from another beer just to get the color right for style.

Good beer. Wouldn't make it again because it's a smash beer, therefore simple. And that's to point. Really helps you understand what the ingredients taste like, which helps me think about what will happen to future recipes if I add vienna malt or hallertau.

After much anguish and deliberation, I've decided to try this first w/o doing my first decoction attempt.

So, I'm going single infusion and thinking about a mash temp of about 154 for 60 minutes. So, no melanoidins for me

But, we'll see how she goes. I still have high hopes for it and I'm beginning the brew now so if anyone has any tips or suggestions, feel free to let me know

Cheers

Do the decoction I did it for my 2nd all grain and its not hard at all, I just did plenty of reasearch and watched youtube videos on it, it'll help so much with the traditional malt flavor

I have brewed this recipe 4-5 times now and I love it. I have brewed it multiple ways as well, decoction, single infusion, multiple infusion. It's an awesome beer that shows how great a simple recipe lager really can be.
