Did I ruin my kettle or am I safe
 
2 Attachment(s)

So after my last brew day I thought that I would really do a good job of cleaning out my brew kettle so I got out my PBW and put that into my kettle full of water. Unfortunately something came up and I forgot about it until bb2 days later. When I remembered I dumped out the water and there was a large brown spot where the PBW residue had settled on the bottom along with a powdery residue all over the kettle.

So I cleaned out the kettle with a sponge and hot water and then I did a hour long boil that got rid of the brown spot on the bottom and i was able to get rid of most of the residue. But along the sides there are now some weird streak marks. I've posted pictures to show what i'm talking about

So my question is did i really mess up my kettle or should it be ok to keep using it. I know PBW is suppose to be safe but did it do anything to my kettle???
Also if I did miss any PBW residue will my beer be safe in the next match?

Thanks for any help that you can give!!!
