Hello all, newbie here, just brewed my first batch last weekend. I brewed a Continental Pilsner kit from BB.
I racked from the primary to the secondary. According to the FG everything was right on target and it didn't taste too bad, a little water down possibly but not too bad all in all. How much head space should I have in my secondary. I have been reading about too much oxygen being a bad thing. I am using a 5 gallon carboy and the headspace is roughly 3-4 inches, is this a terrible thing or what.
My second question is, the beer itself seems really dark. I don't know if anyone is familiar with the Continental Pilsner, but should it be that dark. It is a little darker than Michelob Amber Bock, as an example. Is this normal or did something go wrong somewhere.
Thanks for the advice and help. I am sure I will be on this forum a lot in the future.
