Pawtucket Patriot:
I'm brewing a CAP this weekend and bought Wyeast 2278 (Czech Pils) instead of the American Pilsner strain.  Does anyone have any experience brewing this style with 2278?  Based on Wyeast's description, it sounds like a great option.  What say you?

Here's the recipe:

The Rocky Mountain Lager yeast makes a nice one.

34/70 too

Reviving this thread to ask a related question...

Would a small amount of Victory (~2.5%) be out of place in a CAP?  I'm not asking whether it would be to style, but whether it would be a complimentary malt to a CAP grain bill of, say, 6-row and flaked corn.

I really like 34/70. Nice and clean. Easy to use as well.
