Hop and Grape do a 70EBC Crystal Malt on special order. Isn't 20L a dark colour? Wouldn't you need a light colour such as 2L to 6L? Sorry, showing my ignorance on lager brews and lovibond scales here maybe..

20°L is pretty light. I've never seen any crystal with a single sigit Lovibond rating, but it might be out there somewhere.

The lightest crystal I have ever seen is 10°L, then 20, 30, 40, etc, all the way up to 100°L or maybe a tad higher.

It's not a special order as such, just another sort they keep out the back that you have to ask for because there isn't shelf space for everything. But from your address I'm guessing you don't shop there in person anyway...

no i don't really have a local shop so i order of the net and 20L is about amber colour i think and once diluted in the wort it should be lighter by the way my larger is now priming and it is good! shame about the amber colour but it tastes good! forgot to add is there an alternative to crystal malt which is light?

the lovibond scale for beer hues appears to be different than the scale for grain colors... if you click on the the "grains page" from your own reference, you'll see that they even call 40L crystal "pale crystal" (http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homep...age/Grains.htm)
20L is definitely a light crystal
