Grain Colour Scales

 The brewing industry measures the colour of grain using three different scales. The Lovibond Scale as developed by Joseph Lovibond in the 1860s, the Standard Reference Method (SRM) and the European Brewing Convention (EBC). All three scales identify grain colour on an ascending scale. The lighter the grain colour, the lower the value. The darker the colour the higher the colour. The EBC rating is the scale most commonly referred to in Australia.
