Hi, i'm going to be making the Pliny the Elder clone that was printed in Zymurgy.
I don't have any Crystal 45 - but I do have some Crystal 15, Crystal 60 and Crystal 120.
If only I could subtract some Crystal 15 from the Crystal 60
Why do you want to watch TV and listen to the stereo at the same time? Because I like to party.
Use a smaller amount of the Crystal 60 than the recipe lists for the Crystal 45 (that I've never seen anywhere). This grain addition is more for color than taste.
How large is the batch, aal grain or extract?
I just used 40 that I had.
Thanks Dunerunner, I know that some of the crystal malts have caramel flavors and some really can't be substituted. We are making a 15 gallon batch - all grain. Almost 50 lbs. of grain!!
