A few months ago, I brewed a Californian Common using Maris Otter as the base malt. Recipes I have seen online use different base malts. One uses Briess Brewers Malt 2-Row (difficult to get); another uses Weyermann Premiere Pilsner Malt and there are others. I was happy with my Maris Otter effort, but wonder if this base malt results in a beer that is actually true to the style. Can anyone offer any suggestions on this?
