Default Question About Mixing Base Grains

I'm working on a recipe to use up my leftovers. I have a variety of base grains, but I don't know if they'll all play nicely together.
I have one lb. each of Kolsch, Vienna, and Munich malts, and three lbs. of Belgian Pale Malt. I was thinking of adding some Marris Otter, or I could get more of one of the ones that I have.
Any advice or suggestions ?

Never heard of "Kolsch" malt, is it pils? Otherwise, everything should be fine. I like MO with Munich and/or Vienna for more body.

The Belgian pale should blend fine with MO.

Kolsch Malt is malted specially FOR Kolsch beers. It's made by Global Malt, around 4.5L, IIRC.

I saw this the other day and was curious myself. Would be interested to hear of any experience with it. Possibly the OP since he has a small amount left?

Man, break down and buy a sack of base, and keep the higher L's for small special adds.

I imagine Munich would blast all over it in equal amounts. Might not come through in the finished product. *shrug*

I've used it once, and the Kolsch is in the lagering stage right now. It'll be ready for consumption in mid-June.
I sampled it green, and just after fermentation, and it was pretty good !

A sack of M.O. was my other option.
