So I'm just fixin to rack my first try. It's been in the primary for 4 days, and the SG went from 1.045 to 1.016. It looks like beer, and it smells like beer, so I guess it's gonna be beer...unless I drop the carboy. The taste though is very bitter (I was going for an Amber Ale). I'm sure it's going to mellow out after another month or so, but is it normal to be more bitter at this point than it will end up?
