This looks fantastic to me (as does your most recent version, without the biscuit. Either way you've got an excellent bitter). I don't use acidulated malt, so I'll leave the ph argument to others,...

I'm no engineer, but my bet would be that you wouldn't see a significant difference when using any one of those options over another. The point is just to keep the wort moving, so that there's...

Agreed. I'd drop the carapils, the flaked oats, and the acidulated (unless you need it for ph reasons). I like adding a little biscuit to my bitters, even when MO is the base malt; it adds a bit...

So you think water is leaking out of the back of the ball valve? If so, I'm not sure what else would fix that, other than teflon tape. Give the nipple 6-7 good layers of teflon tape before you...

Damn, that looks good. If you want to make sure it dries out, you can always add 1/2lb table sugar or honey to the boil. Or do as other people say and mash at 150-151. Either way, looks like a...

I don't think it matters much. As long as you're getting the energy into the wort, the placement of the elements relative to each other shouldn't make a difference.

Engineers, please feel free to...

Looks fine. Bittering hops don't matter all that much - they provide mostly bitterness and not much flavor or aroma. I think going for the same IBU's for the first addition is a good idea. And...

How much do you need? I have 4 oz, but could probably give you 1 oz. 3 oz should be plenty for the single hop IPA I'm planning.

If you're really desperate, maybe we could trade an oz of Nelson...
