Default Great Western Superior Pilsner Malt

So I just left the brewshop with a bag of Great Western Superior Pilsner Malt. Now I am having second thoughts.... Is this the type of pilsner malt I want? I am just now getting into lagers as I have temp control. I also do a fair amount of Belgians, which generally ask for "Continental Pilsner" in the recipe. Is this a comparable product??

It is a similar product. However the soil conditions the grain grows in does have an effect on the taste. The earthiness of Maris Otter is a prime example. Using a GW pilsner in a recipe calling for a continental pilsner may result in a slight taste difference. I however wouldn't worry to much about it; just brew a batch and see if you are happy with the taste.

Thanks for the reassurance, as that is basically what I was looking for! I think I may try another bag of Weyerman's Pils and try a couple of recipes split between each malt to taste the difference.
