Had a stake in Maximiliaan's Brouwhuis in Amsterdam in the early nineties, where the brewing master Albert made fantastic german style beers. The place went broke due to bad management.

Afterwards I was the Dutch importer of San Miguel until I sold my company in 2002.

Since this spring I sometimes make beers with my friends, and try to keep myself informed.

In other words: wait and see, and don't kaizen it if it ain't broken.

My question is: Is this a normal procedure? Anyone knows about this? We might say that the fermenting process itself needs more time to produce the color, which indicates that we probably used the sufficient quantity of malt.

Today, after 10 days, the color is more and more turning red without any intervention. And we didn't do anything. Of course it's our first Red but we didnot expect this to happen.

Thanks a lot, but one more question: to what quantity of wort you refer to when using 2 handfuls of barley? It's a carboy of 50 liters?

Thanks a lot for this advice. In respect of the quantities you name and in order to add the adequate quantity of Sinamar you refer to 1 ounce = 28,35 grams and 1 gallon = 3.785 liter?
