the point is that you made a good beer no matter what. I don't think there would be any flavor difference, maybe color like GodsStepBrother said.
You know the reason why Vinnie put sugar in the first place was because his mash was not large enough for this beer and it added the gravity points he needed without the space. They use a different system now but still do it this way. It also helps dry out this beer.
