    Who has experienced this? Were you able to pinpoint the cause? What did you do to resolve the
    issue? I've heard water chemistry, I've heard mash temps, I've heard oxidation at different
    times can caus...

    It clears a little bit. Only a little. I'm so super-careful with everything. My mash is
    something I really monitor very closely. Got a great digital thermometer and paddle in nice and
    evenly.This has ...

    Because I can't filter my beer, I'm not cold crashing my next few batches. Chill haze makes the
    most sense.

    If you look at the countertop, the photo of my beer (the dark one) is actually OVEREXPOSED,
    meaning it will appear lighter in this photo than it actually is.Both beers are unfiltered. The

    Mine (left); Theirs (right)It blows my mind this is Pale 2-Row 149 60 min. mash, 60 min. boil.
    It's just not right. This is a SMaSH. One pale grain. Aarrrrgghhh!!!231699

    I vote hot side aeration. Maybe calibrate your scale?The only hot side aeration that could be
    taking place is during mash in. Other than that, the boil, which I really don't have control
    of. A good, r...

    by chance, are you using avangard pale ale (2-row) malt? I have found this malt to produce much
    darker beers than expected. Literature says it's 3 srm but i'm suspecting darker (~5-6
    srm).briess

    Maybe I should experiment with a "session" beer and see what I end up with. Most all beers I'm
    brewing are in the 6.5-7.5% range. More grain, darker color perhaps. I've certainly enjoyed
    many light co...

    No darkening of my kettle and it's a pretty high-quality MegaPot 1.2 from Northern Brewer.I am
    hitting final gravity on all of my beers.I will definitely start changing pH at mash. Thanks
    for that poi...
