I've heard my coffee should sit on a burner for no more then 20 minutes, what Is your preference? I usually use a thermos mug to keep It hot. If I want to time how long the coffee Is on the burner...Do I start the timer after the coffee starts entering the pot or after the brewing Is done? Thanks!

I always turn the heat off on my pot the SECOND it's finished brewing. If I forget it for even five minutes the results usually go down the sink.

Well...I know that some small coffee houses or gas station's with pot brewers don't usually let the coffee sit on the burner for more then 20 minutes. I don't really see a big difference If I leave It on there for awhile. Just not longer then that.

Is this for your Phase Brew?  I can only think of one glass carafe coffee maker where you can keep carafe on the burner for an extended period of time, and that is the Technivorm; it has a low setting for the hot plate.  There may be others out there.  If your Phase brew does not have a low setting then you should turn off just like CoffeeRon mentions, immediately after brewing, otherwise you just forget and before you know it you have cooked coffee.

Yeah It's for me Phase Brew, and that coffee maker doesn't have a "low" setting for the hot plate. But I did end up buying a Thermos brand double walled thermal glassware carafe to keep the coffee in. So this doesn't matter any more lol

Never, yep, that is what I feel.
For drip I go straight into an airpot.
Quality shops here, put a timer on the air pot set for one hour. When the timer reaches zero, the pot goes down the drain though as they are a pretty busy shop, it is a rare pot that reaches the end of the timer.

As others have said, don't leave it on the burner.  If I were you I would take the thing apart and unhook the wires to the hot plate.  I'd rather have warm coffee that's not burned than hot coffee that is burned.  And to answer the question about how long it takes the coffee to burn, it's basically instant.  The first drops that come out will begin burning as soon as they come in contact with the heat.  The less sensitive your palate, the longer it will take for you to notice the burnt taste, but the burning starts right away.

I ended up getting a thermos thermal carafe so I don't ever leave coffee on the burner. I just preheat the thermos and throw the coffee In their. And I can take the carafe with me to pour more cups without getting up to go into the kitchen :P
