Is there a common form of crystal malt similar to English Medium Crystal?
 
Looking to make my first non kit English pale ale recipe that calls for 0.5 lbs of english medium crystal malt. Is there a common form of crystal malt similar to English Medium Crystal? I was thinking of using either crystal 60L or 40 L.

Most "medium" crystal malts from English maltsters are around 45L, or a bit darker, so you're in the right ballpark.

it's a little maltier than american crystal 40, so i'd go with crystal 60 to replace
