I plan to call them in advance for sure, but why would a keg be any different as far as a pressurized vessel than say, a case of beer?

I serve multiple 5 gallon kegs using a single 20oz paintball CO2 tank. I don't think you'd have a problem with one on a 9oz personally.

What would the equivalent of FWH be in a BIAB process? Would you add hops to the mash, or immediately after (which is well before a full boil obviously)? Is it even really possible in BIAB brewing?

The only alcohol percentage refractometers I've seen don't work in tinted or sugary solutions. Interesting if they have some that do though.

Not quite. Alcohol content throws the readings off. Unless you are correcting for the presence of alcohol, you're readings with a refractometer will be wrong.

In all likelihood you're just seeing the drop in pressure associated with cooling the tank. An easy way to check is to remove it from the cold environment and let it warm back up to room temperature.

Excellent. I've got some beers fermenting away at 68... The wine will fit in nicely.

What about the warm and hot? Is it really insignificant enough that they don't need to specify temps?

Graph paper! Psht... model that stuff in a CAD application! Seriously though, plan it right and you won't be disappointed.
