I was brewing porter yesterday and while steeping the grains, the temperature got up to like 175. I still do the brewers best kits and the ones in the past had said not to let the grains get past 170 or else tannins would be released. This one did not say that. So did I inadvertently release tannins? Or is there a chance they stayed in?

IF your PH was high it is quite possible. tannin extraction comes from both mashing too high combined with a higher than ideal PH.

It's hard to determine at this point but if you did there will be an astringent component to the finished beer. Somewhat dry, mouth puckering taste.

Not long at all, soon as I saw it I took the pot off the eye. Then let the grains steep for 30 minutes on the counter
