100% of everyone on this forums first batch looked like this:


So don't be surprised if yours does too.


Homebrewing has come a long way in the past 30 years. People used to crack eggs in their beer (maybe some still do) to get their beer to clear. Now we crash cool or use gelatine. There was also no interbutts in the 70's. Now there is.

And as far as green beer, do you mean literally green? Around here green beer means young, unaged beer, not beer that has gone foul.

Green could mean a few things:
1. Green flavor like vegetation
2. Green color (from coloring) like on saint pats,

The later is not going to happen without intention. My take is don't listen to your buddy. Make a beer it will be better than anything you can buy most likely.

Some people will say anything as an excuse for their own laziness.

You're not going to get beer unless you specifically put something in there to do it. I'm trying to concoct a way to brew a green beer, the right herbs may do it. However I don't know how many that may take plus finding the ones that will be drinkable in such quantity. Maybe the right fresh leafy green veggies and steep out the chlorophyll. Japanese matcha tea, but that could be pricey. Plus it's gonna have to be a lighter beer so you're not having too many dark malts to overcome.
