Very true. I made that mistake in the beginning. Now it is always uncovered, until it hits the fermenter. I used to cover while cooling, haven't had that problem since.

An increase of all the grains by 10%, should get you about 4.4%. This is assuming you are hitting the same efficiency (70%) as the original. 15% increase would get 4.6%, but that math is much harder...

Cooling and sanitation seem spot on. For the dish soap, I go with 7th generation free and clear on a non abrasive sponge and rinse well. Starsan is very good.
