Default Grain question

Had a guy send me a recipe that calls for c-20 or crystal pils. Is c-20 Crystal 20L and is Crystal pils Caramal pils malt? Just trying to figure out what he is talking about as far as grain goes.

Yes, c-20 is Crystal 20l and Crystal Pils is what we generally call Carapils.

If I'd known I was gonna live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself!

Crystal/Caramel 20L is most likely what is called for. Crystal-Pils is a Durst trademark.
