I meant no munich or vienna with two row. I almost always use 5-10% munich or vienna with pils.

I would go as far as saying no 2-row period. I don't think it would hold up being so dry.

Yeah, just not as good (or authentic) a product with 2-row IMO.

I've done really well in competition with Great Western NW Pale ale malt as a Saison basemalt. Maybe not as traditional as a Pilsner malt, but I prefer it.

Oh yeah, and a little bit of Caramunich.

I'll stick to a bill of pils, rye, Munich and Vienna.  Do you feel that dry hopping with galaxy would be. Fine shile preserving yeast character since it really only plays role in aroma?

I think it'll be lovely.
