Oh, man what a brewday I had to day!
What was supposed to be a longish 5 hour brewday with a rather long mash schedule (BIAB) has turned out to be 9 hours and will end up in around 10 hours total!
During the start of my boil, my electric heating elements gave out so I had to boil the 6 gallon batch on the stove in pots of various sizes. I am finally finishing all of this but now I am concerned that the wort may have been burned at some stage (probably before my elements gave out).
Below is a picture of the wort as I moved it to the ferementer. I am cooling it down in the tub filled with cold water.
So what to you guys think? Does the wort look like it was burned during the boil? This is the recipe I used. Not sure about the type of Crystal malt I used so the SRM is probably off but is was entered into the recipe as 20 SRM. :
