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.

A Great Addition to a cream ale
I used 4% in a Cream Ale and it gave I a hint of sweetness. Exactly what I was trying for.
