My second batch was a partial mash, with DME, it scorched on the bottom of my aluminum kettle.. I never tasted it in my brew. I sure learned to turn of the heat when adding extracts, and i guess honey too.
It wasn't a really bad burn i guess, but bad enough that now after 10+ brews it is still visible some on the bottom, about 4-5 inches diameter.
I'd give it a try and see what it tastes like after 6-8 weeks. You can always dump it then, or after an even longer aging.
