I have made one Brewferm beer before (the Grand Cru which turned out very well) and in an attempt to run before I could walk, when I came to make the other one I had (the Abdijbier) I thought it would be nice to replicate a buckwheat honey beer I had in Poland, so decided to exchange some of the sugar added at the fermentation stage for buckwheat honey. I replaced about 1/3 - 1/4 of the sugar with honey and checked to make sure I had the correct OG as indicated on the instruction sheet.
The brew has been in a bucket with lid and airlock for a couple of weeks and I've just transferred it to a second bucket for clarification. The SG is around 1.016 and there hasn't been much sign of bubbles over the last few days, so I'm not sure if it has reached a point where it is stuck and won't get to the recommended optimal bottling density of 1.010. However, my main concern is that on tasting it, it is a bit bitter. Is it best just to leave it for a bit and see if it mellows, or could I add a bit more sugar at this stage to sweeten it up a bit? Any thoughts? Is it too early to panic, or the right time to act?
