Aromatic is at 6 L

Interesting; Dingemans lists theirs at 30°L minimum. Who's the maltster for the Aromatic you used?

  Looking at aromatic now, I see it at 29 so I have no idea were that 6 came from. Must have been looking at something completely different.
 Still can't find anything on that page with a six.

One has to be clear when stating Lintner (Diastatic Power) or Lovibond (color).  Easy to get the message mixed.

Good point. DP is in degrees Lintner (°L); color is in Lovibond (L). It gets really confusing because a lot of people can't/won't type a degree symbol.

I don't know if it's correct or not, but to make matters worse, I've seen Lovibond expressed as degrees as well.
Is that a counter-pressure bottle filler in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Good point. DP is in degrees Lintner (°L) . . .

Unless it's °W/K.
