Looks OK although a little busy IMO. The numbers make it more like a Euro rather than American. Should be pretty tasty.

Looks pretty tasty, though I also am kind of curious as to the grist. You're adding lots of body and flavor with the Vienna, then trying to take it away with the maize.

Hope it turns out well for you!

Interesting comments Bob. My feeling was to add the maize to bump up the OG without adding even more maltiness. Kinda to appease my BMC buddies.

I think that, if this beer will appeal to strict BMC drinkers at all, it'll do fine without the miniscule ABV bump. But it's your beer!

It's been in the fermenter about a week and a half. Needs a week or two more before I rack and taste. I'll keep you posted...
