You are right, I could have done without the carapils... I honestly cannot remember why I threw it in to begin with. As you pointed out, the beer has plenty of body. In retrospect, I think I would probably eliminate the carapils and increase the munich slightly to keep the OG close. I mashed at 154- I edited the original post to reflect that.
