Despite what I said previously about Jamil indicating the caramunich was important, I agree that you shouldn't be afraid to substitute. If I were brewing it again and didn't have caramunich, I'd do just what you say - I think it'll make a great beer regardless.

Obviously Jamil knows his s**t when it comes to formulating recipes, but at the same time, since he's out winning contests left and right and has every kind of grains and ingredients available on hand all the time, he doesn't hesitate to use exactly the ingredients he thinks are best, even if they may be difficult for some people to get their hands on.

I also find British "Medium" crystal malt that comes in around 55L. That's a good substitute for CaraMunich.

Beer is good for anything from hot dogs to heartache.

Default Cara 45

Dingemans cara45 is CaraMunich. So if the LBS store doesn't have it maybe try subbing some Munich 10L with crystal 50/60. Mix and match to your liking or style.
