The color will get lighter with AG. The key with a PM to keep it lighter is to add 1/2 the extract for the last 15 minutes only.
I switched to AG to get more control over color. I used to only use DME as my base malt and then PM the rest. I also tried a PM with half of my base malt included in the PM.
Keg 1: American Wheat
Keg2: German Ale
Next up: Christmas Old Ale, American Wheat AG, need suggestions
