I just got done brewing a Hefeweizen and the color came out darker than I wanted. I use a late malt extract addition and added 75% for the last 15 minutes. I was hoping for a nice yellow color, but it came out more as a deep gold/orange color.
When I was checking the Briess website, they say their wheat extract is a 2-6 Lovibond and this is the number I used for my recipe. When I looked closer, it says the Wheat LME is a 2-6 and the DME is 6-10.
It doesnt make sense to me that the DME would be that much darker than the LME. Has anyone else seen/experienced this before and know if these numbers are right or not?
