I made my first proper brew today and was wondering about the colour. It did not have the colour I thought it would have. I used 4 cups of pale malt, one cup of Halcyon, one cup of Maris Otter and also one cup of Amber Malt.
What I ended up with had a brownish complexity that I did not entirely expect. Is this the colour / clarity these malts give or am I doing something incorrectly?
