Default Crystal 25L amount vs Crystal 10L amount?

If I have a recipe that calls for 1/2lb of Crystal 10L and my LHBS
only has Crystal 25L, 40L, 90L and 120L, how would you adjust
an amount using 25L instead?

I'd still use a half-pound. There's no conversion factor; 25L isn't 2.5x sweeter than 10L. 25L will give a little bit more flavor, but for a half pound - it's close enough. The beer will be SLIGHTLY darker, but not enough where I would worry at all.
