Would a malt bill with equal parts Munich, Vienna, and pale malt be too cloying? Something along the lines of 3 to 4 pounds of each in the recipe. It wouldn't be like throwing 3 pounds of crystal in there, right?

I have made many beers with Vienna only and one with 40% munich.

So I like your idea.

My Oktoberfest is 4 pounds Munich, 3.5 Vienna and 3 Pils. Turned out great.

two of the finest beers i've ever tasted were SMaSH ales.

one was 100% vienna with northern brewer

the other was 100% belgian munich with mt. hood

my dunkelweizen recipes are usualy about 40% munich.

remember...people didn't always have specialty malts. These are base malts and are intended to make up the majority of the grist

I've done 80% Vienna and wouldn't again but 1/3rd each would be nice.

I've done Vienna Lager (100% vienna malt) and Munich Dunkel (100% dark munich malt, triple decoction) and both are excellent beers. The dunkel is in the 5th month of lagering so I haven't had it carbed but it is TASTY.

Munich and Vienna are very different from crystals, so you don't have to worry about the beer being too sweet.
