Crystal 10L should be nearly the exact same thing.

Briess defines both C10 and C20 as being "Candylike sweetness with mild caramel." So depending on what your recipe looks like, you might get away with that and/or a bit of carapils or munich10, if the original C10 only made up a small percentage of the grist.

My 1st PM yesterday used 4lb of 2 row,.5lb of carapils,& .5lb of crystal 10L. It smelled of caramely buiscotti to me. Good smell that reminded me of my extract pal ales. Just cleaner/fresher.

Ah, this was a crystal versus caramel question, lulz, that's why I just call it "cXX." My LHBS only stocks "C" in multiples of 20, so I'm used to subbing the nearest. Randy Mosher does a good job of demystifying which malts are nearly identical but named differently in his book "Radical Brewing." Check it out if you get a chance, it helps unravel other's recipes when they come from an area that uses different malts than you have available. Cheers!

Be aware that Briess sells 2 grades of crystal malts...ones made of 2 row and ones made of 6 row. The 6 row crystal malts are cheaper and less tasty.
