Grain Color is SRM?
« on: November 21, 2012, 10:52:57 PM »
I was creating my first recipe and was adding a new grain that was not listed (Paul's Crystal Malt).  I see that the color is listed as SRM.  Is this Lovibond or really SRM.  I know that they are close but the grain that I buy list Lovibond and not SRM.  Do I need to correct for SRM (More important in Darker Grains) from Lovibond.

°L = (SRM + 0.6) / 1.35
 :'(
So if I have a Crystal that is 42.5 L  = 56.35 SRM?

May have already found my answer.  In the Crystal malts listed the Lovibond and the SRM are the same (which they are NOT :-X) so I guess it really means Lovibond and the color is  is mis labeled
