I just brewed a belgian triple from an extract kit
SRM was supposed to be around 4.7
Actual SRM more like 19-20
Any thoughts on why SRM could be higher than anticipated???

What's the recipe. Extract is usually significantly darker (liquid more than dry) than pils/pale malt so you're going to have an issue brewing pale beers with it. The older the LME the darker it gets.

Its the LME. I never brewed a light colored ale until I went all grain. Stick with extra light DME.
