I brew from extract, boiling on an electric stove (in an apartment). Every beer I've brewed has been darker than I expected, which isn't an issue most of the time as I generally prefer darker beers... However, I'd like my next attempt at a pale ale to come out pale!
I think this is primarily caused by the way I'm boiling, essentially caramelizing on the bottom of my brew pot. Is this correct? Any suggestions on avoiding it, or generally keeping an ale light colored?
