Title: Lovibond chart
Post by: sharg54 on February 27, 2011, 07:53:12 PM
I have been roasting a lot of grain at home and was wondering if there is a good color chart for lovibond? I can locate them for beer but not for grain. Is it the same chart?  It would save me a lot of trips to the brew shop to compair colors and help me from over shooting the mark from time to time.

sounds like a project.  buy a 1/2 pound of a bunch of malts, photograph, catalog then you would be set.  post when complete ;D

that's all well and good but if I had that sort of time I would have done that already. Is there a chart some place?

Yeah, AFAIK.

IIRC there's some samples inside the front cover of John Palmer's book. Also I have an iPhone app called BrewMath that has a color sampler in it, but it doesn't reflect copper tones. Still a good indication though.

And then there's this:

Thanks oscarvan. Thought it was the same but you never know. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask IMO. Ok Denny I'll bite what is "AFAIK"??

As Far As I Know it is a misspelling of something that is counterfeit
