IMHO, a microbiologist would be the best place to start. I would guess that
the pink color is caused by some bacteria or fungus that got in your sugar
brew. It could be inhibiting your yeast and causing lower CO2 output. Try
rinsing out your apparatus with very hot water or a mild bleach solution (make
sure to rinse THOROUGHLY after the bleach. Hope this helps.
In E. Lansing, MI. Love that wind chill!
