+1 on the light munich. It should be around 7 or 8 levibond.

I used light munich on my latest batch of CB. Looked a bit darker, but didn't notice a serious difference in flavour.

I agree on the light munich.

Roast some two-row at 215 for about an hour.

Bumping this thread as I just found myself in the same situation. Is a 1:1 swap with Munich ok to do? I was wondering about 50% munich and 50% 2 row to replace the missing Vienna.

Also have Biscuit and Pilsner as options. I really liked the Vienna in this so disappointed to have to make a change but have no other option to get this brewed.

I have brewed this a few times and last two I went with no Vienna and it was great....you can just leave it out.

That small amount of Vienna doesn't make a huge difference. You can leave it out or do what was mentioned here and lightly roast some 2-row to give it a more full flavor.
