Is there an adjunct grain out there, or some checmical that would lighten the color of your beer? I'm interested in using an Amber DME, but I'm afraid it might be a little too dark...

No, all grains, etc add color. There's no way to lighten.

But this begs the question...if you want a light beer, why use Amber DME? Why not use light DME?

I was being stubborn. I figured an American Amber should use Amber DME. I was shooting for a reddish hue. But, I swallowed my pride, switched to Light DME, added some Biscuit and CaraMunich to the steep portion....ran it through the recipator and....BAM! Perfect coloring........thanks just the same, though!
