Looks like you could learn your way around BeerSmith a bit better, but overall, I think you'll enjoy the beer. Cheers mate.

Loose the c-pils. The Briess extract is 2-row and c-pils and should have plenty of it. Don't need mouthfeel for a tripel. Don't think Warrior will make for a good tripel with that yeast but YMMV...

+1 to losing the carapils. I would also go with Pilsen DME over golden. You might want to move your 45 minute hop addition to 60; 45 minute additions aren't real effective for bittering of flavor. Also, put some thought into how your going to control temperature. Shoot for starting fermentation at ~65 and ending ~75.

Enjoy the beer!
