Only if it's nice and clear. If you keg cloudy beer, you're gonna have to wait a week and then pour a bunch of pints to clear out the bottom end of the keg.

My rye pale ale has a whitish film on top too...almost greesy looking. I think it is from the star san bubbles that were left in the secondary when i racked. Should be fine I think....right.......o god......ok....RDWHAHB

If you drink either beer you will be disapointed. Too young, too green, too astringent, and too damn yeast soupy. Mouth feel won't be there, taste won't be at its best, and you will be running to the bathroom and letting off some foul stinking gas.

RDWHAHB is the best advice in this business. If you don't have any go to the liquer store and find some quality craft beer. You'll just have to throw a Thanksgiving party and enjoy them both much better then. Or you can keg it and settle for, well you get my draught.

Patience is a ... and Good things come to....

Well patience is a virtue, but it apparently isn't always a necessity when it comes to brewing beer! We had our party and just like I thought, the batch we brewed on the 19th wasn't that great, but still better than some beers I've had. Anyhow, an hour into it we killed the first keg and onto the Belgian Blonde ale! Rave reviews from all around, I don't think it could have gotten much better. It was awesome...from what I remember! We still have a bit left we might bottle for gifts.
Definitely have to get some more brews going this week!

Well if you think "not great" is okay then you really don't need our advice.

Believe us when we say time improves things dramatically. You will notice that your blonde will get better in time, but then again, like doctors, it takes patience.

Personally I would have liked to wait at least a few more weeks but it wasn't only up to me anyhow.
I definitely think the Maple Brown needed more time, we never should have opened it so soon, but it was half gone by the time I got done with work!
I was really surprised how great the Belgian Blonde was though.
