Oh my gosh, Tbone, the same thing happened to us. Within the past 2 weeks a tile contractor installed Jeffrey Court Weather Grey tiles on a shower surround wall using Oyster Grey grout. I kept hoping that within a few days the grout would dry to an even color. It is now dry and the appearance remains the same. I was ready to blame the tile guy. But apparently it is my fault for requesting this grout. I have never had such an experience with grout. What we hoped would be a beautiful bathroom redo is simply an ugly nightmare and I can't bear to look at it. The project was very expensive. We also used this grout as recommended by Home Depot for the floor tile in the same room. It applied unevenly, displays similar inconsistency in color, and some cracks and pinholes are apparent. Results are awful all around, and I now wish I'd kept the 30+ year old 4x4 white tiles with original and almost pristine white grout. I would give it negative stars if I could.

This grout was easy to work with, but it is not consistent. It dried much lighter and much more uneven than expected. I was unable to grout our kitchen backsplash in one shot, so the places I overlapped the next day or fixed in a corner are darker than the places where there are no overlaps. It looks wet but it's dry and not matching to the rest. Again, this might be my bad technique, but you would think the same product would match itself. Go with a pre-mixed grout if you can. My Home Depot didn't have unsanded pre-mixed, and I'm sorry I went with this stuff.

fromWhy is the Color Sample Purple? This grout is dark brownAfter reading all the negative grout reviews, I did some research as to how NOT to have my dark grout turn out significantly lighter than anticipated and end up with white surface effervescence. I followed strict instructions on the water measurements and made sure my sponge was only damp. Also, i learned that grout has problem drying in humid or cold temperatures so I took a blow dryer to it to expedite the drying process and it did not effect the color. The Sable color is great with the tile I chose. I only got a bit of spotty grout toward the edges where you can't tell. And for people who are confused on what the color is. When you see the grout mix dry in the bag, that is the color the applied grout should dry to. My Sable brown looked like a melted chocolate bar when wet and dried lighter. I have posted a zoomed in photo for color comparison. On my computer screen the grout color sample looks purple lol

fromDries uneven colorsWe used this grout on gray/taupe subway tiles for our tub surround. We mixed the grout according to the instructions, and it seemed fine when going on. All was good until it dried. It dried almost white in some places and dark gray in others. It was completely random and varied from white to dark gray over the entire project! When grouting we noticed streaks of red and orange pigments in the mix. We used a hammer drill to mix so it wasnt that it didnt get mixed enough. I couldnt leave it like that so i had to buy some grout renew and painted every single grout line in a slightly darker "delorean gray." That added an unnecessary 8-10 hours! (Yes, painting grout lines is a huge pain!). We finally have the look we were going for, but it took considerably more time and money than it should have. What a disappointment! We have used white grout by this company with no problems, but we will not buy any other colors of grout made by them. I would not recommend this color.

We went with this color and because the Royal Cream is so light it actually turned out great. Glad we used this. The snow white has a tad bit of grey in it so it isn't bright white which we were afraid would be too light for the tile.

It mixed to look like dark chocolate. I thought it might dry to the grey that was indicated on the box. When it dried it was a mix of colors from the dark chocolate(almost black) to a light gray. It was splotchy all over the place. I only used it in a small closet because I was worried after it mixed so dark. I mixed per procedure with a paddle mixer and drill, so I know the mix was consistent. I threw the rest of the mix out and returned the other boxes to home depot. I bought a different brand of grout that was about the same color and it worked perfectly.

BTW I also tried the sanded version in this color on a 1/8" line. Same negative experience with both. I was wary of the product before I began, but vowed that I would "do everything right" and avoid the mishaps of others. The grout is terribly blotchy and unevenly colored. I precisely weighed the product and mixed religiously according to instructions. I used RODI water at 70 degrees F to do so and mixed by hand. I tried to avoid excessive wiping to the point of crawling around and only wiping the tile and not the grout line with a damp microfiber cloth. After several failed attempts, I decided to apply grout in my closet and just let the crap dry for 6 hours before wiping with lightly damp sponge. Same results. I have worked hard to get this right and tried it several times with a few batches and 2 boxes of product. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. Unfortunately, there aren't many alternatives at the big box stores and dark grout seems to be a problem. I have laid 500ft of tile with this product and plan to go to a pro shop to find some alternative for my remaining 900ft. The only reason that I haven't completely gone mad from this grout is because it is camouflaged by the irregular color of my tile. If I had solid colored tiles, it would have killed me.

fromDries to a different colorI had the same issue as other reviewers - once the grout dries the color lightens to a medium grey, not a charcoal as is pictured on the box. It seems like this is an issue with just about all black grout due to the amount of cement required.
HOWEVER I was able to salvage my project by using polyblend's grout renew colorant/sealant - it's good to seal your grout anyway and the charcoal grout renew does dry black!
I used the grout renew to brighten up dingy tile in the past so when I was disappointed in the color of this grout I was excited to see that they do make the grout renew in charcoal! I highly suggest that anyone planning on putting in tile with black grout uses the grout renew - I just used a toothbrush to scrub it on and wiped off the excess.
