    Also, did you mean OG instead of FG? FG will also be impacted by your fermentation and BS can
    only guess as to how great that went.Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    You have to set your own boil off rate, and brew house efficiency in BS. I found mine are close
    to the defaults but not exact.Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    I'd say that are useful but to use with caution and double check against a hydrometer to get an
    idea of a correction factor. I find mine is usually within 3-4 points (usually measures low) so
    I use it...

    Actually it has darkened slightly as it has cleared because the yeast is a very pale color it
    was actual lightening the beer a touch.If that is the same color everyone else is getting with
    Dingemans p...

    Here is a sample, a little lighter than last sample bit still darker than Duvel. I do start
    heating my wort after about 3-5 gallons so that might be part of he prob.

    Yeah, I'd say that mine is very similar to your pilsner sample there. Would be interested in
    seeing if your sample changes with treated water.

    Yeah, full 90 min boil. Driving me crazy that I can't seem to figure out what it is.

    If your all pilsner malt beer is coming out the color of Sierra Nevada, either you're scorching
    it or you're not using the malt you think you're using. I've never heard of the color being
    affected muc...

    Using dingemans pilsner malt and have brewed this recipe 2x with nearly the same color as a
    result. Also I use gelatin so the beer is crystal clear. How does Duvel get is so light if that
    is what pils...

    I am judging color based on hydrometer and glass samples, not Carboy. I have not had my water
    tested but I do use those ph strips in the mash and it looks ok. Not sure how accurate those
    are.
