Whatever it is, it is light. I've never had an extract brew come out that light. Even a kolsch. Guess that means I'm doing late additions from now on.
Check out my pics in #4:

Those are gorgeous homebrewer! I'll see how my "Slow Saturday APA" comes out, which was my first late-addition attempt. If it works like you say it does, it'll help stifle my desire to go AG (I think I want to go AG because I've had so much trouble with extract. Hah! I really just need to work out the kinks in my extract technique. Like not using anymore LME, using starters, and do late-additions).

Something I learned pretty quickly - there are plenty of wrong ways to brew, but there is no one right way to do it. There are LOTS of right ways. And quite a few wrong ways (which are to be avoided).
