Beer Color (SRM) Calculator

Beer Color Standard Reference Method (SRM) Calculator estimates how light or dark your beer will be based on known grain color values assigned to grains, extracts and adjuncts. It also factors in the quantity of the ingredients to calculate the final beers approximate color profile using the Malt Color Units (MCU) Formula which is fairly accurate with light colored beers, but becomes increasingly inaccurate for beers with SRMs over 10. Values over 40 are reported as Black.
