Default German versus Belgian Pilsner

In your experience are these interchangeable or are there some noted differences that would recommend one or the other for specific brew styles?

belgium beer has a yeast profile much different than a German style pilsner. So I would say they are not interchangeable based on taste.

I presume you're talking about malt, not styles, though I can understand confusion.

I find no perceptible difference between Belgian and German Pils malts.

That was easy!

With Dingeman's vs. BestMalz, I think I found the German to be slightly maltier/grainier, but maybe it's because I wanted to think that.
