OK, so I made a Brewer's Best Witbier, and everything was going great. Fermented down to the prescribed final gravity, smelled great, sample tasted decent after 2 weeks in the primary.
Then came the black death. I racked to a secondary carboy (brand new, but I washed with Oxy clean, then sanitized).
Then I added 1/2 teaspoon of gelatin. As directed on the package, I added the gelatin to a pan of 1 cup water, let sit for 1 hour, then brought TO a boil and stopped, cooled, and funneled into the carboy. After perusing the forums, I learned you aren't supposed to boil the gelatin, but the package originally said so.
When I woke up in the morning, the carboy was VERY dark (blackish). I'm going to Europe tomorrow, so I'm just going to leave it for 2 weeks and relax (not SUPER worried).
Also, I understand WitBiers are probably supposed to be cloudy, and I understand some people are against secondaries. So please don't hammer me on those 2 topics. I wanted to free up my primary vessel, and my first beer was uber cloudy, so I wanted to try out the gelatin.
Any idea what this could be? Thanks a lot guys, I appreciate the help (for this issue and weeks of answers I've found by simply searching the site)
