So I finally made my first homebrew: the Chinook IPA. The end product was drinkable, but tasted more like a Budweiser and didn’t have the reddish-gold color specified in the description (it was kind of a dark brown). I’m positive that it was something I did wrong and not Northern Brewer’s fault, but I just wanted to see what you guys thought I did wrong? This did come from a starter kit that hadn’t been touched for 3 years (although I did replace the yeast with a non-expired version of the same type of yeast).
Let me know what you all think, thanks.
