subtle grist changes are more what makes vienna distinct from oktoberfest, not just gravity. vienna is typically all or mostly all vienna, whereas fest is usually base of vienna with munich and pils added.
no brewing this weekend, but we're doing a club brew next weekend - 70 gal in two days!
I have little experience with Vienna lagers, other than occasionally having a Negra Modelo or a Bohemia at a taqueria in San Francisco's Mission District that serves alcohol illegally after 2 am. I actually went to summer school in Vienna when I was 16 and only ever drank Pilsner there (along with tequila shots Wiener-style, with cinnamon-sprinkled Orange Slices rather than salt and lime).
