Muntons is not
normally old. It's a very reputable maltster and IMO more tasty than Briess. Many brewers would agree. Though there is certainly nothing wrong with Briess products. Muntons are Briess are among the top two quality competitors. However, Briess offers a slightly sweeter, stickier DME. In my experience, Briess DME has been more difficult to work with when adding a portion as a late addition. I get more clumping and slower dissolving. All in all, I tend to prefer English 2-row, even in American IPAs. It's very similar to American 2-row, but with slightly more character.
In regard to your specific question about Muntons, they had their own line of Carapils for many years, (which brewers thought was exactly like Weyermann Carafoam or Briess Carapils). However, Muntons changed the "Carapils" suffix to the aptly named "Caramalt" in an effort to be less misleading. This is because the Lovibond of the grain is 10-15 L, and thus is more akin to Crystal 10-15.
You shouldn't have a problem with using extra light DME. Just don't add any additional carapils. As duck said, you can combat these minor
effects with supplementing some corn sugar.
