Default Caramel / Crystal malt

I'm preparing to make a batch of Vanilla Carmel Cream Ale and the recipe calls for Caramel 60. I have Crystal 60, is there a huge difference in flavor? or is it just a color difference? I'm using 1Lb as a steeping grain.


Primary 1: Cheesefood's Vanilla Carmel Cream Ale
Primary 2: EdWort's Apfelwein w/Montrachet
Primary 3: EdWort's Apfelwein w/Nottingham
Secondary: IPA
Kegged & Conditioning: Northern Brewer ESB
On tap: I.P.A. (BB Kit)
Bottled & aging: American Nut Brown Ale

On deck: Fat Tyre Clone, Irish Red & More IPA!

Caramel & Crystal are interchangeable terms, so it should turn out exactly how you expect!
