That was the main problem though: recipe called for carastan 14&34. Wasn't sure how much 10/20 & 30/40 to sub in. I'll figure it out sometime through experimentation though

I'd use the same amount of 20 and 40 as the original recipe calls for of the others.  It's not gonna be that big a deal.  The color of any crystal malt is just an average of the various colors that make it up anyway.
