Default Sub for carared?

Looking to make Denny's Waldo Lake Amber only to find out I only have 3.2lbs of carared instead of the 4lbs required for a 10 gallon batch. Here's what i have that i can sub in. Caravienne or Honey Malt. I'm leaning towards the honey malt myself.

Honestly, either one would work as its such a smaller pecentage of the grain bill.

Sightglass, Refractometer, Ball Valve, Weldless bulkhead, Thermometer, Decals, Stainless Steel Fittings, Compression Fittings, Camlock Quick Disconnects, Scale, RIMS tube, Plate Chiller, Chugger Pump, Super Clear Silicone Tubing, and more!

The caravienne would be closer, but the Honey Malt more interesting.


Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

ixnay on the honey malt. Caravienne is closer in color and flavor. I never use more than a pound of honey malt in anything. It gets too be too much.
