So I brewed NB bourbon barrel porter extract kit a week ago and everything went well. OG was right on target at 1.064. Pitched 2 packs of dry yeast at around 64* and kept anywhere from 62-65 during the entire week.
I decided to switch out my blow off tubing as I saw no activity in the last 2 days and figured I would take a gravity reading while I was at it. The first thing I noticed when I pulled some out with a wine thief was the brew was nowhere near as dark as any porter ive ever seen. I would say it was around the opacity and color of a brown ale. Just curious what would could cause the lack of darkness.
The gravity was a little on the high side (1.025) so im hoping it isn’t done fermenting. Not sure if this would attribute to the color or not. I pulled it from the swamp cooler to raise the temp a bit hoping to get a little more activity.
