Hi hi. I am prewing some pale ail and after day 5 in the primary I am noticing a blue tint in the color.

Like it is really looking blue and it is starting to worry me.

I will get home tonight and take pix but for now does anyone have any ideas of what may be going on?

There is zero foam on the top.. like. no head at all and i put yeast in it 4 days ago. The smell is normal with a bit of a lemon smell.

Cleaned it with the pink stuff and rinsed very well. brand new bucket never used before this batch.

Pics would help, but 4 days and no Krausen?

How about this... Recipe, yeast type, yeast pitching temp, etc etc.

Help us help you.

Morgan Mountain Lager kit. Yeast is Coopers. pitch temp is a little cold but barely in the green on the beer thermo ( last I checked this morning ) In a dark area sealed lid with a blowoff.

Below is the pix on the kit box.




** edit.
That pix was just from a google image search of Blue beer

Reason: Added info

Just a thought -- if you have a light beer like that sitting in a clear carboy, then any colors in the surrounding environment can easily cast a color or shadow through the beer.....you might try moving it into another area of the house with neutral colors and lighting, cause I've never heard of blue beer ;-)

ditto
But +1 on the optical illusions. I thought my second batch was infected. Turned out to just be an illusion right where the carboy curved. Made it look like there was a 1inch layer of black on top
