I am a big fan of MO, and use it in place of 2-row in a lot of my recipes. Nothing wrong with subbing it out, but MO is not right for all styles. I use it quite a bit in my APAs, and IPAs that I brew.

I use Belgian pils malt for most of my recipes (Dingemans). I only use MO for English style ales, and only use American 2-row on a select few American Ales I have done.

I generally prefer the Belgian Pilsner, I think it has great flavor.

Hah, i got a kick out of this...I think most of us would use more Marris Otter if we were dealing the stuff...let's see, walk out to warehouse w/ plentiful sacks of grain everywhere, make tough decision...domestic two row or Marris Otter???

My LHBS

Marris Otter $68/sack
Dom 2 row $41/sack

Not that 27 bucks is gonna kill me, but almost 70 bucks for a sack of grain...ouch.

*shrug*

I use MO in all my pale ale recipes and batches come out to around $12 - $18 for everything, including hops, grain and yeast. And I pick up my MO for about that. No warehouse here, just bulk buy hops and dry yeast that gets rinsed and reused.
