Hey guys and gals,

I was going to brew a recipe I found online, but it calls for English Crystal Malt I and II... no Lovibond listed. Anyone happen to know the L rating for these?

Thanks.

My guess is they're talking about carastan. MB has it and it's 30L, they also have a British Crystal at 50/60 and another at 70/80. I would assume the Carastan would be equivalent to the ECM I and the 50/60 would be equivalent to ECM II.

Crystal I is 45L.
Crystal II is 65L.

T. Fawcett makes these and I have used them both.
