Default Rust?

I cleaned and seasoned according to directions on this site. However, when I did the vinegar soak, I didn't realize until afterwards, that I diluted my already diluted vinegar. After seasoning, I noticed the pan has kind of a bronze cast to it and wondered if that is normal or is it rust and should I repeat the vinegar soak with the correct 1:1 ratio of vinegar? Also, after the first use, I didn't realize I didn't dry the bottom good enough and a little surface rust developed. Wasn't sure best way of handling both of these issues?

Default Re: Rust?

The pan will darken up with use or more layers of seasoning. As for the flash rust, it should come off easily with a little oil on a rag and a bit of rubbing.
