This came up on the Oktoberfest 2011 thread. I made the same suggestion, swap out C-60 for CaraMunich. Seig heil!I agree with Denny, it's totally optional. But if you like the taste of some sweetness to go with the malty profile, then the flavors of CaraMunich will fit better. FWIW, I use some CaraMunich typically. You definitely don't want a distinct caramel flavor; that's why you should avoid the crystal-type malts labelled 'crystal'.
