I am using the BIAB technique, so my brew kettle is also my mash tun. I forgot to have my brew shop crush my grain so I used a pestle and mortar to crush about 20 ounces of my grain with a pestle and mortar. It was quite fine, which I wanted for better extraction, but there was a small amount of grain on the bottom of my kettle. It was there throughout the boil...

I don't need to be worried about tannins do I? There was a very small amount.

You'll be fine, wont hurt a thing.
In their efforts to regulate beer quality, the ancient Babylonians, who were among history's earliest brewers, decreed that any commercial beermaker who sold unfit beer would be drowned in their own libation.
