Most likely it would be cheaper to switch your disconnects to pin (or ball) locks because the price per keg is still under $50 for a used pin lock keg. You could order four 5 gallon kegs and...

If you are allowed to use specialty grains, you can basically a ton of different directions with a 170F steep.

I think the best thing you can do is to try to eliminate the fusels in the fermenting process with a good yeast pitch and temperature control when you're making the cider.

If you don't have a store in a 30 mile radius, then you don't have a Local HomeBrew Shop, and there's not a lot of reasons to feel bad. Also, shopping local doesn't mean taking abuse or putting up...

I'd used BrewMath for that with a 5 gallon cooler sparge and it worked well. I do BIAB exclusively now though, so I don't use that part anymore.

It depends on if it has honey character or not. If it has a noticeable honey character, than Braggot, otherwise probably specialty beer. It really depends on if you boiled the honey or not.

Make certain the cold plate is there, it's probably the most usable part since you can make a jockey box with it. I don't think you'd want to use those faucets with beer.
