Yeah that's a version of it. There's a very similar one in "Brewing Classic Styles" that might be a bit more specific and includes more hop varieties, it's just a black and white version. I think if...

Yeah measurements are by weight. My guess is 11 oz (liquid space) of grain might be just a little low but generally in the ballpark of 11 oz dry weight... Relax it'll be fine, def not royally screwed.

I really, seriously, did think before going "pro" that it'd be helpful if not necessary to go to Davis. Now not so much if that's what's being taught, particularly the stuff being stated by you,...

End of primary fermentation is indicated when there's one bubble per 2:30 to 3:00 minutes, I thought everyone knew that.

I personally currently prefer, with my system (10 gal cooler MLT, fly sparge), to skip the mash out step, and instead use that volume of water that I'd use to get to mashout temp as part of the...

I don't think you'd be able to tell if the priming sugar had been fermented because a hydrometer isn't accurate enough to detect such a small change. Best bet is to bottle immediately after priming...

You probably just had a typo - but that recipe says "Replace the wheat malt syrup with 3.5 pounds of pale malt. Increase the Munich malt to 4 pounds and the wheat malt to 4 pounds."

It is only important to measure pre-boil gravity if you mash grains, (i.e. all-grain, or maybe partial mash). Even then it's not "necessary" to measure it. Extract brewers, or extract brewers that...

The cost around here is about $80 to purchase a full 5# aluminum tank, and exchanges are in the $20-$25 ballpark, even from a local welding shop. I called around a while back, and as I recall I could...

60F isn't too low for most yeast particularly if you're referring to the ambient temp (not the actual temp inside the fermenter). You'll probably want to set your temp controller about 5 degrees less...
