In case it doesn't settle well, you could tilt the fermenter to encourage the trub to settle to the side away from the spigot.

Another fix for city water with chlorine is campden tablets. Crush and add at the rate of one tablet per 20 gallons - this can be done conveniently by dissolving a tablet in 2 liters of water, and...

I haven't had the problem of LME not dissolving using a 2.5 gallon boil. I wonder if it's just the hot break you're seeing. I like the flameout addition method because then you don't have to bring it...

Welcome.
One thing I would add is check the fermenter bucket for scratches. If it's scratched, I wouldn't use it.

I'll throw out an unlikely possibility - wild yeast. I had an APA ferment out to 1.006. The flavor was way off, but I couldn't identify it. The guy at the LHBS tasted it and said it tasted just like...

I've used both and can't tell any difference. Now I use cane sugar because it's cheaper, and it's always available. I've used cane sugar in the kettle, too. It seems to work real well.

If using craft (or other) beer bottles, get the pop-off kind - not twist-off. You can cap the twist-off bottles, but sometimes the seal won't work right.

Are you using the inverted cup on the end of the auto siphon? It should work the same as a racking cane. Maybe you just had more particles than usual.

One concern that I have: Your original attenuation was 68% - then it apparently stopped due to alcohol content. Your new yeast might very well eat more of the residual sugars plus your priming sugar...

I haven't tried it, but several brewers have said they like it.

I agree that varying utilization rate is not the result of dissolved sugars, but this does not mean that the Tinseth formula, or others, are wrong. Proteins/hot break may be the real reason, but the...

How about a 5 gallon bucket from Wal Mart? I just bought a bucket and lid for about $4.00. Of course, that could be another debate.

I'm not sure what you mean by "inverted", but it's normally used just like corn sugar - just not as much needed for the same effect. I've used it many times, both in the boil and for priming.

Your OG is so low, I wonder if you got low conversion efficiency. Maybe a coarse crush.
