European Brewing Convention
The European Brewing Convention (EBC) color method was developed in Europe for measuring the color of Malts and beers. The method uses comparison between a sample material and standard color to determine color at the same frequency of light as is used in the SRM method.
- To convert from EBC to the more popular SRM or Lovibond color units, the following formula is correct for lightly colored malts and beers:
- SRM * 1.97 = EBC
