Not with steeping grains. You are correct that it was way too hot, but you'll be fine. Temperature control is one of the most important aspects we brewers need to harness. It comes with practice.

no worries. it won't be messed up. if it was all-grain, and you did the entire batch of grain that way, i would say there might be a little off-taste. extract with specialty grains? no effect at all
