Test your electric stove before you put too much time/money into making something. My last 3 apartments have all had electric stoves. The one I am currently in will boil 7 gallons with no lid using 1...

I don't really know for sure, but I thought the main problem with twist-offs is that they were more likely to break when you cap them with a wing-style capper. Once they are capped I think the...

I think you are missing an ingredient because that doesn't sound like it could be much darker than a light amber color.

This is pretty much it. Crystal malt is mostly unfermentable, so it will make your finished beer pretty thick. Going from 8 oz to 4 oz drops you from 20% crystal malt down to 11%.

I thought malted wheat actually had more enzymes than 2-row malted barley, but I could be wrong. I don't think 2 lbs of malted wheat flakes will be enough to convert 7.5 lbs of unmalted wheat though....

8 oz of crystal malt is a little high for a batch that small. I would cut it down to 4. Other than that it sounds like you will be fine. For a 1 gallon batch you probably won't even need to do a...

I pay $0.72/pound or $29.50 for a 50 lb "virtual bag" where I pay in advance and they keep track of how much I have used until its gone.

Brewer's yeast is a pretty specific type of yeast. You could get it from a local microbrewery, but that's pretty much your only other option.

My advice now would be to mark off gallons (and half-gallons and quarts if you want better accuracy) on your fermenters so you have an easier way to estimate your volume next time.

I don't have much to add in terms of advice/help, but if I lived it Bend I would just live at the Deschutes Brewery and probably drink myself to death in a few days.

Wrapping your pot in aluminum foil helps a lot for stovetop brewing too. Real insulation probably works better, but foil is cheap and only takes ~1 minute to wrap around 10-12 times.
