Great - been thinking about a Vienna or Munich Lager, but I've only had one before and my memory of it is rather hazy beyond "that was nice".

Took a hydro sample yesterday and it clocked in at 1.016, four points above the expected final gravity. Then I moved it to a 65F room for a two day diactyl rest. The hydro sample tasted very much of vienna, but there was something else that may have been a little 'appley' tasting. Hopefully the diactyl rest will clear up any acetaldehyde that may be in the beer.

Humm, mabey a little bit of butterscothch/butter taste to this beer. But otherwise it tastes alright so far. It's not the greatest Vienna Lager ever brewed, but it tastes aright for my first try.
