Default Specialty Grains

So I bought some blackPriz Malt, which is

Intensely roasted from hulless barley, Blackprinz® Malt is an amazingly smooth and mellow flavored black malt without bitter, astringent, dry flavors or aftertaste. Despite its delicate and clean flavor Blackprinz® Malt won’t disappoint the eye, delivering exceptionally deep color to dark beers or a slight to intense boost of color to other beer styles. The hints of toasted malty flavor that come through at slightly higher usage rates make Blackprinz® Malt a unique member and truly the crown jewel of the black malt category.

Im making a stout and decide to use this instead of Roasted Barley. Is this a reasonable substitution? How much would be appropriate to use in a 5gl batch?

Also does this grain need to be crushed or is it good to go?

I also have some choclate malt, does that need to be crushed as well?

Not familiar with Blackprinz Malt, but try using it in a 1:1 ratio in the recipe when substituting for black malt.

And yes, always crush your grains.

Not familiar with that malt either but it sounds like a substitute for black patent. Use in very small quantities for color. Roasted barley does add flavor and you will be lacking that roasted coffee flavor if you substitute this. Absolutely crush all grains.
