Pale malt vs. Pilsner malt
I want to brew another batch of my blueberry ale since people love it, and it's rapidly dissapearing. Here's the problem. I don't have the same ingredients, nor do I have the same yeast. And I want to brew this weekend, so there's no time to get the proper ingredients shipped in. (there is no LHBS)
The original Blueberry ale was basically a pale ale with blueberry flavor. Something like 8 lbs of pale malt, a little Munich, easy on the hops, with wy1028 london ale yeast and a shot of blueberry extract in the secondary.
All I have right now is 10 lbs of Pilsner malt, Munich malt, hops, American ale yeast and blueberrry extract.
How do you guys think the substitution of Pilsner malt for Pale malt, and American ale yeast for London ale yeast will effect the flavor of the base beer?
Any opinions would be appreciated.
