Hi all,

As far as I am aware, darker grades of crystal malts should generally not exceed 5% of the total grain bill for most styles.
Is this also true for Mild Ales/Brown ales?
The malt I am using is 60 - 120 °EBC.
Can I use 10% of this grade in my malt bill?

Yes, and 120 EBC is not very dark - that's ~60șL. The amount of crystal I can tolerate seems to have a lot to do with attenuation. An aggressive yeast can mow down a lot the sweetness.
