Add a reminder, the cara/crystal malts don't add any fermentable sugars, they are only for color, body and sweetness depending on the level of carmelizaton. Substituting any light cara malt should be fine.


I'm sure you'll be fine with the cara-blonde - that's only a few shades lighter than carapils. It really depends upon what other crystal malts are in the brew. If there are other crystals around the 20-40L, then you may not need so much of the carablonde. Then you could use 250g of that, and 250g of base malt, to avoid it becoming too sweet.
