I think it's a buck thirty nine a pound at my LHBS, for either specialty or base malts. They're pretty pricey.

Because the head presents the beer to your tongue at a different density with a higher proportion of CO2. Why wouldn't that taste totally different?

9% is still high enough that you'll want a long time for maturation. Go buy some craft brews and try to forget about your batch for a while, bro.

Also look into Horehound - it's a delicious herb that was also used prior to the discovery as hops as a bittering agent.

I've had good results when using half a whirlfloc tablet at the end of the boil. Without finings, not so much.
