Default Black roasted barley vs English roasted barley

Are they the same thing?

It depends on the maltster. Typically, black roasted barley is around 500L, while I believe English Roasted is a bit higher near 600L. There are most likely subtle taste differences too.

Have to do a direct comparison to be sure, but as long as their Lovibond values are close, you should be fine to substitute.

It is within the imagination to presume a black roasted barley could hit 600L and an english roasted barley could be down around 500L. These things aren't exact and swapping one out for the other shouldn't hurt anything, particularly if you are using them in a small quantity, which I imagine you are.

100L one way or the other shouldn't hinder your final color, you'll end up with a real pretty brown no matter what.
