Anyone see this before? I have brewed a few juicy style NEIPA all were good and held their color even after 8 weeks in the keg. I only made some minor tweaks to recipe but this one turned on me, a day after transferring to secondary. I had a beautiful hazy yellow/orange color in primary and day 1 of secondary, but on day 2 it completely lost the yellow/orange and changed to amber almost light brown. I know oxidation can be an issue for this style, so I followed my typical oxygen precautions, a pressurized CO2 transfer from carboy to carboy. So I really don't think this this is oxidation. It turned in 24 hours so, any ideas on what happened. I haven't tasted it. Another bit of information, the hydrometer sample i took when transferring is still bright yellow/orange.
