Default Boiling grains

Before everyone cringes, I know NOW, that I should never have grains in boiling water due to the release of tannons.

Before I learned that lesson, I was doing a partial mash and when the water hit boil I added my Stout extract and "tea-bag" of grains, and added my hops at 60", 30", 5". Pull grains, Cool down, dump in fermenter, pitch yeast.

My big question is, should I even bother bottling this beer, or will the fact that it's a stout be a bit forgiving?

Thanks

Bad beer is better than no beer! I know I am a noob around here and you might get different opinions but I say if you don't have another recipe waiting to go bottle it and see what happens.

Who told you to boil your grain for an hour?

Never toss a batch before it's finished. It may have a lot of tannins and be terrible but because it's a stout, it might hide the flavors good enough to be ok.

Nobody actually told me to boil grains, it was a case of reading so much information that it all blended together in one huge brain-fart.

It's better not to boil the grains, but I've done it and the beer turned out fine.
