Default making soymilk by hand

Today I tried making soymilk for the first time and it turned out
green! I followed the recipe from the Soy, Not Oi cook zine. What went
wrong? Is it because I used frozen soybeans or it is just that some
pulp spilt into the milk? Is it because I used guaze instead of
cheesebloth? The recipe says "you can use cheesecloth or anything with
small holes."
The book says you can eat the pulp too.

Yes. Try it with soaked dried soybeans.

No, it's because you used edamame instead of dried beans.

It's okay if you season it well and form it into burger patties. You can
also find other recipes online by searching for OKARA (not okra) recipes.

I wish the recipe would've specified which type of soybeans to use.
First I looked for fresh soybeans at Henry's and when I didn't see
those I got the frozen ones. I didn't even realize they were sold like
pinto beans and such.
