Default 2 row Pils and 2 row Pale ??

I'm getting ready to brew and I'm short 6 lbs. of 2 row pale. (out of 22# for a 10 gallon batch of porter) I have an open sack of 2 row Pils. Any reason why I should go ahead and open a sack of pale for 6 lbs. instead of using pils?

I'm having a tough time finding a noticeable difference since both are domestic.

I cannot find much of a difference between them Ed, according to the Brewmasters Bible;
The Pale Malt 2-row is suposed to be 2.5 - 4 SRM with a 1.030 - 1.035 SG Yield.
The Pils Malt 2-row shows 1-2 SRM and 1.035 - 1.040 SG yield.

I dont think you would notice a difference.

For what beer? Unless it's really light on the hops, I doubt you'll tell much of a difference.

A Robust Porter. Pretty light eh?

I wonder if I should just use pils instead of pale for the beer, since I'm down to two 8# foodsaver bags of pale (at least till Sunday ).

I use Pils as my base malt for every beer I make. There's nothing it can't do well, it seems.

I get my grain in sacks from a local brewery, but 2-row Pale comes to them sans sack and goes straight into the hopper, so the only way it comes out is through the auger, the mill, and into the tun. So no Pale for me...But I'm thrilled with using Pils.

I say go for it, and enjoy it.

Just make sure to do a 90 minute boil to avoid DMS.

Pils malt does generate more DMS than 2-row pale, I believe it has to do with the modifications of the malts.
