Default Briess pale-ale 3.5L.Any x-tra specialty malt needed for english sub.?

My base malt is Breiss pale-ale.When I see a recipe that calls for an english pale ale malt it will always tell you to use some Victory if you are subbing american 2-row in order to give you the x-tra flavor you get from the darker kilning of the english malt.They are assuming you are using standard 2-row which is kilned at 2L and not pale ale which is 3.5L-4L according to my bag.In your opinions, does Breiss pale-ale have enough flavor to be subbed for english pale-ale or does it need some victory or biscuit to give it an authentic "English" flavor?And if so,how much?



Reason: Added question

if you are looking for flavor, try marris otter as part or all of your base malt. it was recently reccommended to me and i love it.

I agree with bwb. IMO adding Victory or Biscuit is no substitute for the real thing.
