Got the recipe for one of my favorite beers from the brew master of a local brew pub. I scaled his recipe down from 14 bbls to this.

My LHBS does not carry Pauls, nor the crystals shown.

If I substitute the same quantities of 60 for the 65, 80 for 90 and 120 for 140, the color doesn't change much, but what about the flavors ?

Before I go back to the brewer and hope that he will offer to sell me some of his Paul's, should I be concerned that it's Pauls or Weyerman's or what ever my LHBS carries?

I appreciate your input.

For the malt flavors this isn't a bad reference.

I would just go with whatever brand you have readily available. That way if you decide to make it again you will be more likely to get the same ingredients.

Sounds good though.
