Gusty 10mph wind and 54F. Beautiful clear skies. Low humidity. Smoker is smoking and the mash is mashing.

We did something different for Christmas Eve this year. After the 5:30 Childrens Mass we ame home and had crab cups, shrimp cocktail, hard sausages, cheese and a couple of cheese balls with crackers. The kids thought it was great.
For Christmas dinner, which we jsut finished, it was very trditional. Turkey w/ stuffing, sweet potatoes, mixed vegies and a salad. I feel like a stuffed pig and the Castle Reisling went down ery well. Now off to hook up the new blue ray palyer and fall asleep for awhile.
Haven't noticed, didn't look very hard though..... Don't get any in the beer either.....just a slight haziness which I don't mind. It's all nutrition.....
And the next question is, is the result any different than if you were to just hook it up and carbonate it? The only thing I can think of is that some of the yeast in suspension would drop out and the beer would be (a little) clearer?
I'm afraid that not having had a blow-off on this beer left it's mark. I'm
getting the harsh bitterness finish that I associate with a Kraeusen that fell back into the beer.
