Default Wort Color & EBC to SRM help for BeerSmith

I trying to enter in some malt I just purchased into BeerSmith, Avangard Malz Wheat Malt and Avangard Malz Premium Pilsen Malt, found some spec sheets on a different thread but stumped with Color... The spec sheet says Wort Color and Boiled Wort Color. I'm guessing I use the Wort Color (not Boiled) and convert it from EBC to SRM, correct?

What you need when entering grain into software is the lovibond color of the kilned malt. I don't see this on the malt analysis sheets you posted. This is usually listed in degrees lovibond, or °L.

Wort color, what's listed there, isn't the color input in beersmith then?

Not as far as I know. It should be the grain color, in lovibond.

This link says 1.5L which checks out as normal for pils malt.
http://www.homebrewing.org/Pilsen-Avangard-Malz-Premium-1lb_p_4523.html

And this one says 2L. A little dark for wheat malt, but the picture shows malt that is darker than I'm used to, so that makes sense too.

Ah cool thanks. Not sure if it makes a real difference but thought I'd create an actual profile for the grain.
