Malt Rating Question (newbie question)
 
Hey everyone, I am putting together a Porter recipe on Beersmith, and I had a quick question. My LBHS (which is actually two hours away) lists their UK Chocolate Malt as being 350L and I was just wondering what this meant. Sorry for the n00b question!

350 degrees lovibond..its a rating of color..the higher the number the darker it is.

Its just regular chocolate malt. The 350Lovibond is the color.

There is also Pale Chocolate, but that's a different animal. IIRC the Lovibond on that is 150 or so.
