should i dump it
Long story short I fell asleep and scorched the living hell out if my wort. I pitchhed yeast anyway and fermentation took off.

Why would you dump it before trying the finished product?

+1. Might as well see how it turns out first.

Does it smell or taste scorched?

Search for some of the "don't dump it" threads- it MIGHT be undrinkable if you keep it, but it WILL be undrinkable if you dump it.

Do you mean you scortched the grain/LME/DME, or you boiled down the wort to burnt nothingness?

Colorowdy 12-11-2012 12:02 AM

I scorched the grains. I just tasted it it tastes like burnt sugar.

Pitch belgian yeast and wait.
What was OG and batch size? and final batch size?

Colorowdy 12-11-2012 12:58 AM

Og was 1.085. Batch size is two gallons

If it tastes scorched, it isn't going away. If the final product tastes bad, just dump it.
