Default Substitution fo Belgian 2-Row

I'd like to brew a Dubbel this weekend which calls for Belgian 2-row. What I have is about 40# each of Maris Otter and Briess Am. 2-row. Would the MO, or even the Briess be a suitable sub for the Belgian, or do I need to make a HBS run?

If I'd known I was gonna live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself!

I don't know that it will matter too much, but I'm far from an expert on any Belgian beer. I think I'd opt for the Marris Otter, the byo grain page lists belgian pale malt as a similar Lovibond rating as the Marris Otter, where the American 2-row is more pale.

Coming Up: Pompous Mudblood, ??
Production: American Barleywine

Drinking: NewZealand IPA, 2013,2011 Maker's Mark Bourbon Barrel Stout, Palate Assaulted Again Black IPA and Kaiser Alt Zwei
