Crab boil water as stock?

BernalKC | Dec 6, 201402:55 PM

We just cooked 5 good sized, live Dungeness crabs for a dinner we're having tonight. They look fabulous. I love crab season!

Now I'm wondering about the leftover liquids from the boil. Can I use this as stock, or at least as input to reduce to a stock? Or should I wait, take the picked over bones minus the carapace and head -- which I read is not edible -- and make stock from that?
