Maybe it goes something like this:

To me, they still look a little immature BUT that doesn't mean you can't brew with them - you just won't get the maximum potential from them and they might impart a slight grassiness. For me,...

My 2 cents:
-There is legitimate concern of water spiraling down the threads under the lock nut (teflon tape fixes this)
-The whole assembly doesn't need to remain rigid and unmoving; you just...

Across the country from you but, FWIW, my refill/swap prices from a cylinder supply company are the same and they are:
10 lb = $15
20 lb = $20

I've also had a 5 lb refilled there but can't...

On the corn/sugar amounts:
I think 5% sugar and 7-10% corn would be a reasonable place to start. They're both serving the same purpose with the exception that the corn can also add a little to the...

They should not expend any appreciable amount. I'd allow for 2mm "expansion" but aside from that, you should be good.

It all looks perfect to me with the exception of too much dryhops (IMO). Otherwise, let me know when it's ready and I'll be over (with a few of my friends) :D

I would shorten secondary and bottle as quick as possible. Due diligence keeping out any extra O2 (acetobacter is aerobic). Carbonate, and put in your fridge. Drink soon. I suspect you'll be okay...

I don't think I have a good answer for that. I suspect that the strain you have will produce something more inline with the Belgian IPAs you've had as most tend to use a fruit-characterful yeast...

You already know the answer, I suspect ;).

While it's on the cusp of "cold enough" for fermenting a lager (50F is a good number), it's certainly not cold enough for the actual lagering of the beer...

14 oz expensive hops

vermont yeast

That's pretty damn good for $50 retail, IMHO. Granted, bought in bulk you could save some money but not a ton.

No, based on the reading I've done that wouldn't be an effective way to drive down your FG. The problem is that adding "hibernating" dry yeast to a solution that's mostly void of an available food...

152F should get you about to 70% attenuation, but it's somewhat system-dependent. That's probably about as low as I'd dare go without knowing how the strain worked for me. 153-154F to play it safe so...

US05 would reduce how the yeast impacts the flavor of the beer, and it can be anywhere from drastic to minimal. IIRC, you used S04 so switching to US05 would reduce the yeast derived esters...
