    Are you thinking of PBW as a sanitizer? PBW is just a cleaner so there is no pH range for

    Yeast in the flask looks good. Inoculation rate may have been a little high for the volume of

    Look at this thread by @Grillbrewfish for building a collar with man made materials. No worries

    Your fermentation may have stalled or it is just proceeding slowly. This can be a
    characteristic of the yeast used. You won't be ready to bottle until the fermentation is done.
