I won't be able to make it out the the store to get more yeast, so that's out of the question. I'll re-aerate though.
My airlock has been pretty reliable so far.

Grainy Tasting?

My past few beers have been sorta grainy tasting. Almost like the unfermented wort. I think it may have had something to do with the boil. My pot doesn't quite fit on the burner and never quite gets...

2. What...

So do you think I'm good? I'm dry hoping, will that maybe mask some of the off flavors?

Thanks guys. Will be making some changes. Also, do you think this beer will have some body? My coffee stout was kinda watery in the middle and I suspect it was from a lack of DME. Is this enough DME...

Also, is this TOO much hops? I know you can never have a beer that is too hoppy, but is this at the point where it is overkill and won't have much of a difference?

Quick question. When adding hops in the boil, do I leave them in for the entirety of the boil, or take them out at the next hop addition?

Well, I bottled them and it looks like it filled with milk. By the time I had finished, the first bottle looked almost like a normal beer. Hoping for the best.
