Belgian or German pils malt is what I recommend. Rahr pils is good too.

I used to use Rahr pils, because it's the cheapest malt at my LHBS. It's not bad, but I think for styles without a lot of specialty grain (like a Trippel or Golden Strong) I think a continental pils is a better choice. After a few disappointing continental-style beers, I ended up using the rest of the Rahr in American-style beers.

I plan on brewing a lot of Belgian styles this year, so I was thinking of getting a sack of Castle Pils. Anyone have any differing suggestions?

Castle is good.  I've tried it, MFB, Weyermann, Durst, and Best (maybe another one or 2).  For my tastes, best beat everything else.

Best is what I use for everything - even my IPA!
