Another vote for water first, then grain. You can slow add your grain whilst stirring the dickens out of things which all but eliminates doughball potential. I'd go so far as to say it's the favored way of doing things. Certainly is for me at least.

Sure. I've had to use a blowoff at all different gravities. Seems to be more correlated with the type of yeast and pitching rates.
