Is there a substitute for Carmel Crystal 20? DME?

Just use 1/3 Crystal 60. :roll:

Sorry, I'm such a smart@*$

Dark DME is 17.5 SRM, not sure if you'll get the same effect though.

You could toast some pale malt slightly, there's probably a recipe somewhere on teh interwebs for time/heat.

here is another web sight with a description of each type of grain used in brewing, each one has a distinct flavor but some are very similar to another,

Make your own!

Seriously, I just made a couple pounds of crystal malt, and it turned out pretty damn good! I followed these directions:

I think crystal 20 is about the same as Cara Red? Usually available at the usual places.
