i don't boil the grains, I steep at 160f for a half hour. ^_^
damn. I probably scorched the LME. so much for a red ale... *sigh*

hopefully it'll mellow out in the bottle and at least be drinkable.

Heh... I almost never keep track of temps. Technically speaking, I don't boil them either. They're in the pot as the water heats to boiling. It probably means that I've got them in the water longer than 1/2 hour, but I'm probably not getting the most efficient extraction of deliciousness from them.

I've been meaning to do a partial mash. Just need to pick up a candy thermometer or something.

Give it a try. Sometimes beer that tastes awful at first changes significantly after a few weeks or months of sitting.

yeah. I thought the whitbier was a goner at first, but it's probably my best beer now that it's mellowed. ^_^
