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.

Pot doesn't show signs of scorching and given its been the same both times when buying the malt a year apart it doesn't seem a malt mixup is likely. Guess I'd rather deal with the color rather than...

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.

Beersmith predicts its going to be almost clear (like a Duvel) but its really about the color of pale ale like sierrra Nevada.
