California Steam ale

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I am just brewing the California steam ale and I am concerned that the colour is not right. I am 4 days in to fermentation and the colour started off reddish brown (like a ruby porter) and is now a browny colour. I checked the elements before brewing to make sure they were correct. I have poured a little and it smells ok.

Can anyone who has brewed the steam ale tell me if the colour is normal.

Yes my California Steam was relatively dark too.

Tasted nice, slightly unusual, apparently a hybrid ale-lager style.

I found the carbonation was low in bottles compared to my other brews, and with poor head retention.  And it was my first brew that was not too heady in th Brewflow!
