Default Lme

I bought a brewers best red ale kit and when I went to add the light lme I noticed it had some off color to it compared to the the rest of it, it was like a cream almost white color, I went ahead and used it, is this abnormal? Thanks

It is fine. It is just more than one type of LME in the same container.

??? Never heard of that one. Sounds like it was off if it was a milky color. Light/gold LME shouldn't look like that.

Light LME should be a rich golden brown,kinda clear thick syrup. If it looks milky,it's likely off from exposer to air. Which contains nasties.
