Default Toasted 2-row tastes burnt

I toasted 2 lbs of 2-row today in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes hoping to get a brown malt for a my brown ale I plan to brew next week. Out of the oven the grain tastes a bit burnt. I plan on letting it mellow out in a brown bag for a week before I brew, but should I worry that I may brew a beer that tastes burnt?

Letting is sit for a while might help some but it is burnt. 45 minutes @ 450F is too long and too hot. Next time try 350F for 15/20 minutes and check the malt as you go.

I made a mistake it was 400* for 45 minutes. Nonetheless, it tastes burnt.
I've toasted at 250* for 20 minutes and another at 250* for 30 minutes with excellent results. I was shooting for brown malt so I'll keep working on it.
