Default Negative Effects from Burnt LME?

As I was cleaning up from this debacle I noticed areas where something (I assume to be LME) had burnt onto the bottom of the pot. Is this going to carry over into the taste of the beer?

I've found that several soaks in hot water and oxyclean has cleaned the results of boilovers from the drip trays under the elements on my electric stove...

I'm not concerned about the stove. This was *in* the pot.

Uh.....I'm saying if it works for carmellized drip catchers on the stove, it will probably work inside the pot as well.

I use it *IN* my pots all the time...

OK, I'm not concerned about cleaning the pot, either.
As my original post said, "Is this going to carry over into the taste of the beer?"

I think he's more concerned about the batch in which he burned the LME, not the pot or future batches.

I'm guessing yes...if you scorched your LME, you will probably taste it in your beer. As with most bad flavors, it will probably mellow somewhat with age.

Taste your next hydrometer sample.

If it's sticking to the bottom INSIDE of your pot, then yes, it will, in theory (really depends on how much there is). All your equipment, should always be clean, all of the time.

I think what Revvy is trying to say is that you should clean your pot thoroughly

In my experience this can be avoided by:

- bringing your pot to boil and then turning down the burner so you achieve a "rolling boil" but not at 100% of the output of your burner. Sometimes it comes down to the quality of the pot.

- slowly adding your DME and stirring constantly so it doesn't "clump" on the bottom and burn / caramelize.


Cheers,
Awfers

The above technique works well for DME. However, LME sinks like a rock when you put in a boiler, and the only way I was ever able to avoid scorching was to take the kettle completely off the heat (like take it off the stove burners, or turn the propane burner off and wait a couple of minutes), add the LME, stir like crazy, stir some more, and then slowly bring it back up to a boil.

I had a bit of burnt LME in the bottom of my pot and didn't taste it.

I did. This happened during the batch. Its not like I had unclean stuff I was trying to boil in. I know I'm a n00b and all, but really now
