You could brew right before you leave. Show him how it's done, drive the four hours home and pitch the yeast when you get there.

You're actually backwards. Some people leave the lid partially on if they have trouble achieving and sustaining a boil, but you don't want to boil with the lid ON.

I'd leave at 50 degrees. It definitely won't kill the yeast but it will help to prevent the yeast from eating the priming sugar, depending on how cold the beer actually gets.

You're right. Really what they're asking you is what is the highest temperature your beer reached after active fermentation has completed. This will indicate how much residual Co2 is in your beer. If...

He's in technicolor!

Is the carafa malt regular carafa or carafa special? Carafa special is not overly roasty that could cause your roast flavor to be low but it should be very dark. Are your grains crushed? That's the...

As long as you keep the cider cold you don't need the the sorbate or sulfite, but if you let it get warm it will start fermenting again.

I put the probe under a folded up paper towel held to the fermenter or keg with packing tape. It seems to work for me.

60-62 is a great ambiant temperature. Active fermentation will add 5-10 degrees to your fermentation, so that's about perfect. Adding a little extra heat at the end of fermentation wouldn't be a bad...

Mr. Beer doesn't use booster anymore, so you don't need to add anything. The new standard refills are 100% malt extract. I wouldn't argue against adding a little extra dme to the basic kits, though.

I haven't seen this asked yet, are you purging your kegs with co2 after you fill them? If not, it could be oxidation.

Don't worry about Munich turning your ipa into a brown. 100% Munich won't make a brown.
Personally I think that Munich adds a great maltiness to an ipa.

I'll sometimes add a little table sugar when I have a bit too much head space. Not enough to change the flavor but enough to produce some Co2.

I kept it warm for the d-rest for 5 days. Then I moved it to secondary for a week at 50 degrees. Then brought the temp down to the 30's to lager for another 2 weeks before I bottled.
