What contamination are you trying to avoid? I don't see how venting the CO2 and contamination are related.

You don't need to vent the CO2 from the freezer, just don't stick your face in and take...

Yeah, I've heard of people who do electric brewing having setups that allow them to do this. I don't know much about it myself, but you might find people in the Electric Brewing forum who do.

Huh? Are you asking if the finished beer will taste like the warm flat hydrometer sample? I assume you're going to carbonate and chill the beer before you drink it. So no, it will taste different...

+1000! You should never stop fermentation early. As long as there are fermentable sugars and yeast in the beer, they will eventually consume all that they can. If that happens in the bottle you...

I guess by minimum you mean the calories that are actually coming from the alcohol, correct? In a 4% ABV beer the alcohol is contributing about 77 calories. In a 5% ABV beer the alcohol is...

I would say no if you want it to be to style. I think Belle Saison would probably dry it out too much and give you too much of a Belgian-ish/Saison flavor for a traditional RIS. But, if you're into...

Depending on your recipe, 65% attenuation may be about right for an RIS. RIS's tend to have a high percentage of specialty grains which contribute a lot of unfermentable sugars. The attenuation...

Haha, nice hashtag!

Yeah I don't know much about electric brewing or engineering either so that could very well be legit. It just sounded so similar to Ghostbusters!

Use the "Can I Mash It" calculator. 10 lbs with 1.5 qt/lb will take up 4.55 gallons. So you can do it, but it will be a bit tight.
