While snowbirding this winter I have been doing kits rather than my usual 20 gallon AG. Just for laughs I decided to do the Irish red kit without boiling the extract.
I steeped the grains then brought the water up to boiling and boiled the bittering hops for 45 min. At the end of that added a pound of table sugar (I put sugar in lots of beers) and the finishing hops. Turned off the heat and stirred in the extract. It almost did not dissolve all the LME.
Chilled in an old fashion ice bath in the sink, dumped into a bucket and topped up with filtered water. Pitched a third generation starter of Hothead yeast made with Fast Pitch canned wort.
It fermented normally and I kegged it and primed the keg with table sugar.
Just tapped it the other day and it is great. My wife that isn't thrilled with many of my beers is attempting to drink all of it.
At no point has it been chilled. I am serving it using a jockey box I made years ago using a two circuit soda cold plate with the beer running through both. It is in a cooler with a Perlick faucet.
