Trying to find the diastatic power of Crisp Maris Otter without success.
I've checked the Crisp Malting website and emailed them (no reply.)

Beersmith lists Crisp as 50 Lin and Thomas Fawcett as 120 Lin.

Does this sound reasonable? Could their malting processes be that much different?

That 150 is either a misprint or is the number in US rather than UK terms. All of the similar UK malts will have numbers in the same ballpark.
