LHBS only carries White Labs, as I understand only Wyeast has Pacman commercially available, and I didn't want to mail order any yeast.

Yes, and for the love of God be careful.

It may not be 240V, but still enough to hurt and/or kill you, or burn your house down.

Use appropriate sized wire, and insulate well (especially at...

I don't think so. You probably will connect the power supply through two terminals which are in the same column.

Not all relays are the exact same, but thats the typical configuration.

You can...

I did leave the iodophor in that pitcher for well over a week, with CO2 bubbling up through it the whole time.

Like I said, I haven't thrown it out yet. I hope you are right!
