Would there be a difference in color, but more importantly taste, between using 1 lb of Crystal 60L or 1/2 lb of Crystal 120L in any given recipe.
Logic tells me the color would be the same. Any additional color provided by the 120L would cancel out being only that half as much is used. A beer calculator I used seemed to confirm that idea. But would it work the same for the caramel flavor provided? The 120L is said to provide a caramel, but almost coffee like flavor, whereas the 60L is a mild caramel flavor. Would have as much 120L in a recipe also give a mild caramel flavor or a mild "almost coffee like" flavor?
Just wondering if I should buy 60L or if I could buy half as much 120L that would provide the same results.
