How do you predict the color impact of toasting?

I estimated the increase to be about 24 SRM based on the difference between Pale Malt and Toasted Malt in BeerSmith, but I don't know if that will hold up with darker malts. Maybe it's a logarithmic curve, so toasting a dark malt has much less effect than toasting pale malt.

Anyone have more direct experience with this?

I've toasted 2-row Pale and it didn't really darken the beer much at all. It was only half a pound and represented only 2.5% of the total grain bill, so I don't think I would have been able to tell any way. Best thing you could do is toast it and then compare it to a couple of other grains to guesstimate the SRM.

You could try this for a start. It's from one of the software vendors so it's probably at least in the ballpark.
