What is the SRM of this?
Christopher J. Perri on Feb 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The others are correct that the color contribution measured in SRM is slightly darker than the name implies. However for most pale and light grains (under 20L) the Lovibond rating is a fair approximation of SRM.

The best of them all
I have tried all the popular crystal malts and this is by a wide margin the most flavorful of any light colored malt. My next issue is decide on the best Munich.

A little bit of amber color, a lot of tasty caramel flavor
I love using this to add some color and complexity; the sweet caramel flavors are great for just about any beer, though if you'r not careful they'll get overwhelmed by a lot of dark roast flavors in porters and stouts.
