Just finished the sparge waiting on the boil, looks more brown than I expected. Just a faint tint of red.
This is my first official all grain so I am going on like nothing is wrong. If I need to do something please somebody stop me
EDIT: Well it did turn a nice garnet/ruby color once cooled, but like a dumbass I got so excited about it that I forgot the basics. I failed to pay attention to the volume and just went ahead doing what I normally do during an extract... ended up with 6.5 gallons at 1.045 - any thoughts? Should I go back and add some DME to make up for it? I figured a lb of DME in a quart of water should be enough to bring it up to par. Help, thoughts, input appreciated... I just want to make sure its not going to taste watered down or anything.
