General Homebrew Discussion / Re: homebrew turning black

ha- sorry: it was brewed a couple of years ago, but I don't still have it. It turned black after a couple of days and I dumped it after a couple of weeks when it didn't look any better. The other half of the same batch (the one that my friend took with him) did not turn this black color, which is what makes me think it's environmental.

The current beer is still just as dark, even when looking at a sample. It looks like a stout, not a pale ale. I don't think it's the yeast dropping out.

I recently made a pale ale and made a belgian pale ale a couple of years ago. For both, I stored the carboy in my basement. Both seemed to be doing fine, but suddenly turned black (no black malts used). I think it has something to do with where I'm storing it: I split half of the wort for the Belgian Pale with a friend, who took his carboy to his place and his half turned out fine. Any ideas what's going on?
