It's tabeled now, but I'm sure I'll do it...

No, quite the opposite. Black Patent is used for intense roastiness, acridness. Carafa III is basically black patent but with the husk removed so there is less acridness.. Use dark chocolate, Black...

Absolutely, keg it, flush with CO2, and then continue aging it in the keg when you arrive, or rack it back into the carboy. I think if you don't have much headspace, fine, just use the carboys, but I...

Thanks! I brew 2-3 gallon batches anyway, so it's easy. Probably domestic pale ale malt, a little Amber, Biscuit, or Aromatic, and a pinch of dark crystal, maybe C-150.
