Default The munichs in Dead Guy Clone?

According to the recipe below, what would you suggest out of all the different munchs found on Midwest Supplies? I am working on my 4th batch so I dont really know all of the differences yet. Thanks in advance for the help.
Midwest supplies offers: Caramunich I,II,and III.
Dark Munich, Light Munich and Munich 10L.

Steep grains in a bag at 155 degrees. Sparge with 1/2 gallon 170 degree water. Allow grains to drip into pot, but don't squeeze. Discard grains. Bring to a boil and add:

I've brewed 2 different Dead Guy clone recipes. Both use Munich at about 7 L. One recipe uses Caramunich II (45L) and Carastan (34L). The other recipe just uses Crystal 40L. Both were very good. So I'd say go with the Caramunich II and Munich that is between 5 & 10L. However, at the end of the day, I doubt that you will be able to notice a difference between CM II and C40. You could just go with 20 oz of one or the other.

Cheers,
Glenn

IIRC, German munich is slightly lighter. So maybe go with the light munich. Otherwise the 10L should do just fine.
