A couple of things the go over here.

First, with an OG of 1.090 and an FG of 1.020 I get an apparent attenuation of 76% which is the upper limit for that yeast strain according to white labs'...

In general high fermentation temps will lead to more esters and other compounds and possibly more off-flavors. Also, big swings in fermentation (in either direction) are not ideal and can lead to...

2-Row vs. Maris Otter efficiency?

I've been doing 2.5 gal BIAB batches for a little over a year now and I've dialed my process in pretty consistently. LHBS double crushes my grains, mash for an hour (don't lose more than 1 degree...

Just leave it alone. Took my triple a month to carb up fully. I didn't cold crash it first, but I think you'll be fine.

Fair enough. They do make munich LME so you could use that if you wanted. And then just go with the light DME or LME. The issue I've had with the munich LME is that you are rarely using a whole...

I wouldn't use amber dry extract. I'd use the light dry extract and get all the color/caramel flavor from the steeping grains. Otherwise, looks great.

My understanding is you need to mini/partial mash the oats with 2-row or something similar to convert them. You can use flaked oats or you can use old fashioned rolled oats (not quick oats). You do...

Just make a starter with the one you already smacked. A date on January won't hurt the starter too much. This is one of the reasons to make a starter.

Have you calibrated your hydrometer? Mine is off by 0.004. That could be where your "missing" gravity points are.

Yep. That's why you need a blowoff tube sometimes. Is that an empty milk jug your are fermenting in?

The only difference you might notice is in the hop utilization. If you put most of the fermentables in firts you'll get a slightly lower hop utilization because you have a higher preboil gravity. But...

Yes, you can add chocolate to it. There are lots of ways to do it (cocoa powder in boil, cacao nibs in secondary, chocolate syrups in boil). The way I do mine is by adding cocoa powder at the end...

Bubbling in the secondary is pretty normal. It probably is just some dissolved CO2 being released after transfer. You might also be getting a little more fermentation because you roused the yeast in...

The Wyeast website says that 1010 ferments between 58-74F. If it were me I think I'd shoot for the low to mid 60s.

I think if you were to add 3 lbs of honey and 1 lbs of corn sugar that would be a LOT of simple sugars and you could have some fermentation/flavor issues. I'd probably pick just 1 simple sugar so...

1. Pitch the proper amount of healthy yeast
2. Proper (consistent)...

If you want to use a secondary I'd wait till you have almost reached terminal gravity. Since this is your first time brewing this beer that might be hard to know. But, I bet you'll be safe if you...
