It's going to be OK. We all had a few faux pas when we started (and still do ;-) .

Grain husks in the wort may add a bit of astringency, but a few won't matter.

Brew on!

Just bottled the brew last night and seems that everything turned out well. The beer smelled like it should and didn't seem to have anything wrong with it. Will be giving it a taste in a couple of weeks if everything goes well. Thanks again to everyone to your feedback and help while brewing.

I would (and do) taste one a week so you can get an idea of how things develope over time. The way that carbonation changes a beer is pretty dramatic, and you can see how the flavor changes from being a very "green" beer to having matured over a month or so.
