OK, so I'm now bottling my first batch. I opened the primary fermenter (did not use a secondary) and I've racked the beer to the bottling container. It smells hoppy and delicious. I'm pleased.
I taste just a bit before I begin to bottle... and it tastes... bitter. Sort of burned maybe.
I know (now) I didn't do a good enough job pouring the wort off the trub - I definitely left too much trub in the fermenter. Is that the reason? Will it mellow as it bottle conditions? Should I trash the whole batch?
I'm bummed and looking for some direction - I appreciate any thoughts.
