I did a decoction for one of my lagers a while back. While I was heating it, I got distracted and scorched some of the grain on the bottom of the pot. There was a pretty good layer of burnt grain on there. Anyway, I figured what the heck, and dumped the unburned grain back into the mash. I tried some last night and it's got a distinct bitter, burned flavor to it.
This happen to anyone else? Will it fade over time or should I just ditch this batch? It's been about six weeks since I brewed this.
