i haven't seen it to be a problem even after the boil. its one of those things i ignore. also if i'm using dry yeast, sometimes i rehydrate and sometimes i don't. i also dump everything from my kettle into the fermenter, which i actually learned from a few people on here, but i think more often than not people avoid the break material and gunk.

If you let one beer sit in a keg uncarbed for 3 weeks, then blast carb it at 30 psi, I'm guessing it'll taste about the same as a beer that's sitting on 12psi for 3 weeks.
Bingo.

I use my fermenters as toilets and do not sanitize anything.

I don't weigh malt, I count scoops. I have a scoop that holds approximately 2 pounds of two row, 2.5 pounds of wheat or rye.
I don't take my kegs apart, I just clean with PBW and sanitize with Starsan.
I use buckets with spigots for primary, not carboys.

The was an interesting article about aeration in the last issue of BYO. The article even mention that hot side aeration can occur if you splash your wort from the mash tun to the kettle.

I JUST STARTED DOING THIS AND WAS WONDERING WHAT WOULD HAPPEN

Or cold condition in the carboy then keg and carbonate. All I know is I'm about to go home a pull several pints of perfectly carbonated beer that I kegged on Tuesday.
