Default My LHBS doesn't carry 15L, so will this work?

Recipe I'm working on calls for one pound of 15L. My LHBS carries 10L and 20L. Is it a stretch to say that if I mix 1/2 lb each of 10L and 20L it will end up as 15L?

May just be easier to use a little less 20

Sure that works. A lot of people like to do this, as it gives more of a complex crystal flavor. 10-20 its pretty insignificant though.

You're sure the recipe calls for crystal malt, yes?

Yup, specifically says "Crystal Malt, 15L".

It'll be a slightly different flavor, but should work just fine. At that kiln level, you're not developing the flavor differences you would find between, say, 40L and 60L.

To be clear, this won't create the equivalent of 15L, but it will be a solid substitute.
