Probably all murky from being stirred up if it's an uncarbed sample while you kegged it. It'll come around.

Color wise, it's probably because of the extract, and you may have not gotten a ton of color from the steeping of the crystal perhaps.

Some people have changed the recipe a bit, so it's all over the place, for instance, here's mine on tap. Pulled a sample snifter to show; mine has a little honey malt, which is 25L, so might be darker than some.

Not too worried. Seems like it should be nice after it settles and carbs up. Thanks for the replies. Now just to get the carbing down. Swmbo's biggest complaint is none of my legged brew is carbed enough.

Well, what temp is your keg at, and what PSI are you putting to the keg?

I keep my kegs at I believe 35* roughly, and carb most of mine to around 2-2.5 volumes. Which for my set up, has me carbing and serving around 9 psi. I get plenty of carb.

Most homebrewers end up over carbing beer.

Set it, and leave it. The shake method just isn't reliable enough to repeat.

Used the shake method the first time and blah. I know rushing anything brewing related is usually not good. Temp inside kegerator is about 35-36 and psi was at about 15 on the main regulator split to 2 kegs so about 7.5 each I guess. Need to get more co2 tomorrow as this tank is now empty.

It wouldn't be 7.5psi if it was split.

If the regulator is putting out 15psi, then there is 15psi in each keg.

I think the color of that one is fairly close to yours.

My brew day for this beer was June the 24th.

I can now say that it's a beer that I will brew again.

I mixed 60/40 pilsner grain and 2 row.
Mash at 148f
1.001 final gravity
The first 2 weeks after kegging it was way too green. I added a lime in my glass and it was just like Corona (my memory of a corona)

Its a good beer for friends that don't like the hops tea we like to make ;-)

Thanks for the recipe

Just got done brewing this. Came in at 1.052. I used 20% extra grains across the board not knowing the efficiency of my system.
