I hope it works out for you guys. Like I said I really like goldbrau, but my tests fell flat for me.

Had a professional lager brewer make one of my beers this year, using 40% vima, 20% muma (Weyermann). He was used to pima+kara grists, and was blown away by how much the vima improved the bready maltiness of the beer.

What made up the other 40% PIMA? I want to brew a Vienna Lager, but I am worried by some of the comments that high percents of VIMA aren't good with LODO.

Vienna and Munich malts are wonderful with LODO. They don't have the crisp, cool, refreshing quality that Pilsner malt does but they're far richer and more bready and warm.

You can make every one of the German lager styles with Pilsner, Vienna, Munich, Carahell, Caramunich, and Carafa. Of course you can use other malts too but those are the 6 essentials in my opinion.
If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always gotten.

Yes, took the tour there awhile back and sampled many brews, pretty decent brewery.

AA,
Any updates on your Vienna? Mine still has a couple more weeks to lager before it goes on tap.

Yeah, it's only a few weeks into spunding and lagering. It's a mouthful of crescent rolls upfront with a pie crust finish though: really tasty. Gonna be a winner when it's done lagering, likely 8-10 weeks on this one. The foam on this is crazy thick and craggie.
