I like the idea of going against the generally accepted parameters. So when I noticed there was a big debate on this forum about coloring light beer I decided that I wanted to do it, but not only do it, but document it for the community to see.

And to be perfectly honest, Its not going to be just a ****ty green beer. Its going to be a nice homemade light ale that happens to be green.

2/22/11 *UPDATE*

The fermentation slowed enough that I could remove the blow off tube and get an airlock on it. I learned that if you are going to use food coloring that you will undoubtedly end up staining your stoppers. I am currently soaking the one that came off but i dont know if it will be coming clean. The tubing I used for the blow off is soaking also but its just dirty and should be fine.

The color has lightened to more of a pale green and is noticeably more yellow in color. I would guess that as this beer sits that a lot of the green color is going to fall out with the sediment. I would not be surprised if the green color was almost completely gone by bottling time.

Well, when the bar runs out of green beer, they just put a drop into each pint, so you could always add a bit to your bottling bucket before you transfer the beer into that or put a drip into each bottle before the beer enters.

yeah I don't want to bash this idea but I will say that I "grew out" of wanting to drink green beer on St.Patty's day when I **** green the next day.

I agree with the statement Stout > Green.

I tend to associate green beer with that of drunken Frats/douche baggery now.

If the beer continues to turn more yellow then I think I am indeed going to add more coloring at bottling.

What I am going to do is bottle about 6 bottles as it sits without adding any more coloring. Then continue to add a little bit more color to the bucket and bottle in batches of 6. This should to help attain the amount of coloring needed at bottling to have a green looking beer.

I figure that I have already helped come to a conclusion about when to add coloring. It is definitely not desirable to add the coloring at flame out as I did.
