Hold the casehead between your thumb and fingers, rotate the neck in the hottest part of the flame. You will 2 changes in the brass that look like a wave moving from the neck towards the base, the first is the moisture being driven offf the surface, the second will be a slight discoloration. Once that second wave hits the bottom of the shoulder, dump it in a bucket of water.

If the brass gets hot enough to burn your fingers, you aren't heating it fast enough and/or are leaving it in the flame too long.
