Default bought 2-row...got pilsen...

So I'm a dummy...drove all the way to Mid Country Malt Supply to pick up a sack of Maris Otter and 2-row. Got there, was too excited to have my first bulk grain purchase and didn't even look at the bags. Got home and unloaded, I have a bag of Maris Otter and Premium Pilsen.

Will it be a huge difference? The Pilsen vs. 2 row? I was planning an American Wheat today...this throws it off. I feel like it won't make a HUGE difference, but what do you guys say?

P.S. I brew IPA's, Stouts, and Hoppy Pale ales for the most part....

I'd sub it straight across for 2-row. You might notice a slight difference...but overall you're still going to make excellent beer and be able to hit your target style/flavor.

Just be sure to boil 90 minutes instead of 60, to drive off DMS precursors. And don't panic if the hot break looks like egg drop soup.

So for the most part I'll be ok as long as I do the longer boil? I have no desire to drive all the way back to Mid Country lol...I don't even know if they will do anything if I called.

"Although mainly intended for all malt beers, there is sufficient diastatic power to convert a limited amount of adjunct. Care will have to be taken that too much adjunct is not used or flavour could be impaired. Also, excessive dilution of soluble nitrogen could result in yeast nutrition problems, causing poor fermentation or flavour defects due to diacetyl for example."

Adjuncts aren't really ever a large part of my batches...sounds like I should be fine.

maybe add a bit of victory or biscuit to get a touch of the breadiness you lost by the swap out.

I decided this will give me a chance to try all those excellent pilsner smash brews I've always read about. I'll use the pils for my american wheat as a pure swap, just because I have no biscuit or victory. I'm sure it will turn out ok. Maybe even good!

All malts (pilsener to black patent) are 2-row except for "6-row", which is kilned as a pale malt.

When one refers to just "2-row", what they are really saying is "2-row pale malt", usually the American variety. This is a lightly kilned malt around 3L. It is kilned a little more than Pilsener, which is very light (~1.5L). Pilsner has a sweet grainy taste.

I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe a bit more flavor hop.

When I buy Great Western 2 row 2.2L it's a lighter malt than GW Pale 3L.
