Should a light malt look very light?
My wort is quite dark which led me to check the expiry date.
Yes, I know. Papazian would tell me to relax and have a homebrew.
Light malt doesn't really look that light. Is this canned extract? Is that the expiration date or a packaging date?
My thought...listen to Papazian. Nothing you can do about it now. Will the flavor be off? Maybe, maybe not.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
