That's not a substitution.

Crystal grains and caramel grains are the exact same thing. Some places just call it crystal while others call it caramel.

Sweet deal, then I guess the recipe will remain authentic and I will not have a scape goat if I fail. I know, RDWHAHB.

You can always blame it on differences between your water profile and his.

I think this will be the first AG I go for. Might might up the hop to make a ESB. Will chat to someone who knows more

3 Oz of Goldings, East Kent, following your schedule (roughly) . I was a little shy of 5 gallons on my wort produced and it boiled down to just over four. The home made MLT (water cooler w/ stainless screen) seemed to get plugged with the first runnings (less than a gallon collected)Mashed at 1.25 Qt per Lb , but flowed nicely after the sparge (170 F. for 10 min.) Fermentation began by the next morning and is slowing down now. I plan to leave it in the FV for 3 weeks, as the belgian wheat I recently did (partial mash) ceased fermenting (started out as a volcano) for a while, then took off again. I know I over hopped your recipe by a little, but figured it might come in as ESB. Brew day was a blast, tried out the new toys(MLT and wort chiller) and enjoyed a few of those Belgians with my Dad while explaining how it all works. If AG works out, uh oh, time to build more gear.
