I'm brewing a pretty standard porter recipe. It's been in the primary for exactly a week. I decided to take a hydrometer reading and everything seems to be going great on that front.
However, the color is very light. more of an amber color than a nice dark porter. It also had the nice roasty finish of a porter but the front end was thin and watery.
Will this improve in the secondary? If not, what is the likely cause? Does it matter that my sample was from the top of the wart?
