Default First batch of caribou slobber, is looks a little off color to me

I shined a light on it earlier today since it really is pitch dark in this closet and it looked a little green. Is this how its supposed to look?. I know the temperature is a little low but it has been done fermenting for several days. I opened up the door to let it get back up into the 65-70 range.

I just brewed this and mine was a little darker, but I'm sure yours is fine.

Is that extract or AG?

I did an AG recipe and it was darker than that.

But taste is the most important thing in the end. As long as it tastes good, who cares if it is off color a little bit?

Extract, and I was a little worried because it took forever to get to a boil

I'm having trouble getting the lid to secure tightly on my primary bucket from NB.

First time brewing a 5 gal batch and I wanted to make sure the lid being loose will not cause any issues.

Thanks.

If you didn't follow the recipe perhaps you ended up with Caribou Snot.

I brewed this 3 weeks ago, had trouble getting it up to 170 on my stove. It was blacker than night when it finally did. Haven't bottled yet, but I don't expect much change. I finished brewing with a burner, no more problems.

Ive brewed it. Mine was actually very dark, almost porter-ish and too dark for the target color. I also did the extract. It was still really good.
