Default Can I substitute Halcyon or Maris Otter for British Golden Promise in a Scottish Ale?

Can I substitute Halcyon or Maris Otter for British Golden Promise grain in a Wee Heavy Scottish Ale? I have about 10 lbs of Halcyon and 10 lbs of Maris Otter along with plenty of 2-Row Brewer's malt. I need to have 16 lbs of base grain for my first attempt at a scottish wee heavy.

Yup, it's not a problem at all and will turn out a really similar beer. Many people wouldn't even be able to tell the difference.

So should I go 8 lbs Halcyon and 8 lbs Maris Otter or should I mix in some 2-row Brewer's malt?

Thanks for the quick response.

Use the UK malt.

Thanks...I'll let you know around New Year's Day how this turns out. I plan on brewing this for my wife to enjoy after the birth of our second child in the fall.
