If you haven't already purchased things here are my 2c.

Use a german pilsner malt (Weyermann or Best).

Drop the carapils.

WL833 (german bock) is my favourite lager yeast. Awesome in a pils (bohemian or german) and dunkel.

I have the dregs of a german pils on tap (100% best pils malt, Hallertau, WL833) and a very light feeling keg of dunkel (munich, Hallertau, WL833).

You won't be disappointed.

Be sure to make a starter even with a fresh vial of yeast. Faults stand out like a pair of the proverbials in beers like this so be kind to your yeast and you will be rewarded with a great beer.

thanks for your 2c they are always welcome!!!

moving to liquid yeast just gives me another excuse to add to the homebrew toy collection and I figure this is the perfect excuse..
