Yeah I don't know what you did wrong. Mine is jet black. Opaque. here is my extract:
It is amazing. Great job on the recipe. I modified it a bit as I always do.
Same grains/extract, added some belgian candied sugar.
Hop bill was:
.5 oz Magnum at 60
.5 Cascade at 60
1 Cascade at 45
1 Willamette at 25
.5 Cascade at 0
.5 Warrior at 0
Dry hop 1 oz citra for 10 days.
Yes, strange bill but it's what I had and what I wanted to try out for a nice hoppy black ipa. Came out awesome.
