I have a recipe that calls for crystal 10, but I only have 40 on hand. I'm not brewing today or anything, but I wanted to figure out whether there was some sort of rule of thumb with subbing out crystals. I realize that 40 is going to lend more color and caramel sweetness, however if I added less, could I achieve the same effect of 10 or are they truly different grains?
