Unless you're extremely careful with your lighting, even good meth
will leave little bits of brown residue. And if you're so careful to the point where it leaves no marks on your pipe, you're probably heating it too little, to the point where you're starting to lose out on a big hit. So yeah don't worry about the brown residue. Try clean it up every few bowls or so though. What works good is a q-tip, dip one end it water. Squeeze it so it's not overly soaked. Then dip it in cigarette ashes. Then use the ashy q-tip to scrub off the brown. The ashes (carbon) create friction, and make it "scrub" sort of. Then using the clean end of the q-tip, wet it, and sort of quickly wipe up any ashes left behind from the cleaning, then finally with another dry q-tip I soak up any water droplets left behind. I recommend this because sometimes if a pipe gets too dirty or marked up, it seems to effect how the meth melts, and burns, and smokes etc.
It could possibly be the cut, but meth is nearly always cut of course. Maybe pure meth does it too, who knows, never tried pure meth
So yeah don't worry about it. If you over heat your meth, you'll know. Mainly from the taste. It'll taste really strong and usually pretty gross depending on the meth. Regularly meth shouldn't give off a very strong taste (though some more than others), and it definitely shouldn't taste gross. Also, make sure it's not sizzling or bubbling. This means it's being overheated.
