Quick question. Will the color change after the wort boil? I just put an oatmeal stout in the primary. Color seemed a little light? SG 1.045

It looks a lot darker in the boil before the hot and cold break, and in the carboy it looks darker in mass.
It will lighten up and be much clearer and lighter in the bottle and glass.

What was your grain/extract bill? Do you have an estimated SRM color?
