Copper- the deposit is not a purchase price. Those kegs are owned by the brewery, or microstar. Only paying the deposit means you are stealing from the brewery.

Why did you put gelatin in the keg rather than the fermenter? When I add fininings I will rack off them into a keg. Maybe I'm wrong but I'd think your first few pours would be a lot of sediment. ...

A bucket isn't very expensive. Either are the plastic water jugs for water coolers. I know some people who enjoy 1 gal batches, but in my opinion it's not worth the trouble

I personally feel that unless you get into freezing temps, you will still have enough yeast to carb. You could always just lengthen your primary if you are worried about sediment

Are you going to bulk age and then bottle or age in bottles? If you were planning to bottle and then age, maybe I'd cold crash it first

I'd be careful with the barefoot brewing. I've spilled boiling wort on my foot and wound up in the ER. Not a lot of fun. Since then I brew with boots on- pro brewers have certain brewing gear for a...

It's just sugar. You could measure it. That way you aren't taking anyone's word for it. Just dissolve a 1/4 cup of sugar in a quart of warm water and use your hydrometer
