Default Large amounts of Vienna/Munich malts in recipe.

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.

Single Malt and Single Hop. Pick one of each and knock yourself out.
