Has anyone encountered such a dark color? Is there something wrong?

is a little darker than what i usually see with MCT. have you brewed with this batch of the TE before or is it a new batch?

How high was your temp? MCT's "smoke point" is lower than many other oils.

New batch Bro, got the parcel days ago. The color I used to make is really much lighter than this. This is too yellow.

Looks great to me. Nice color. Test E and C raws sometimes have a yellow tint.

yeah usually is lighter but Zomb said what i was thinking as possibly with it being a new batch, it may have a slightly different hue to it. pin it and get some bloods and you'll know if its Test at least

Not that I’m any expert on home brewing, but MCT oil doesn’t need much heat to start turning color. Let us know us know how it goes with the lower temp

No that looks good , maybe filter with 45 ug. Watman filter ,or cybex
Reheat with needle ba ck Sticking out of the bottom and then put in the oven for a little while if you filter it You will try it might work I don’t know
