Color of Mr Beer finished beers - No lighter than copper color for me yet

Recommended Posts

I have tried several Mr. Beer recipies and am starting to get good results.  I just tried a tapped into two well conditioned Klondike Gold and Long Play IPAs yesterday and they came out great!

 

One thing I notice about all my Mr. Beer recipes is that the finished beer comes out on the darker side.  The lightest I am seeing is about the copper color of a Sam Adams.  (NW Ale, Long Play IPA, Klondike Gold) Many go much darker, even to a coca cola color (Diablo IPA, Vodoo Ale).

 

Do any Mr. Beer recipes brew lighter in color?  

 

Any sample photos you have would help here.

Classic American Light, Aztec Mexican Cervesa, ...

 

Simply select the SRM range of 1-6 on the left when you're looking at the base refills, or any other category.

Just keep in mind you are probably not going to get pale american lager light. (Think Coors...Miller....etc.)

Extract beers are always darker than any commercial example of a style.  That is because of the process used to make extract and the fact that it darkens as it ages.  If you are making beers from grain and not extract you get the lighter beers you are looking for.  No real issue with the darker color from a flavor standpoint, just appearance.

Copper color and darker, but that is OK. Most important is flavor, body, aroma.
