Chocolate Malt Brewing Values

These are the common ranges that we've seen with Chocolate Malt over the years. Each manufacturer can have slightly different qualities, so these ranges are based on a combination and average.

SRM
SRM is a scale for measuring the color intensity of a beer. Low SRM values indicate a pale straw color while higher values mean the style should have a darker color. Learn more »

Diastatic Power
Diastatic power (DP) is a measurement of a malted grain's enzymes, which are responsible for converting the grain's starches into sugar during mashing.
PPG
PPG measures the maximum starting gravity (SG) of the fermentable in points/pound/gallon. This can differ based on your mash efficiency and the amount of wort collected.
25 ppg
