The Blonde is a very clean style with not much to hide behind, unlike the hoppy goodness of a DIPA or a acrid richness of a porter where some slight off flavors could easily get lost. I would try...

You can skip the secondary and just leave it in primary for 2-3 weeks and then dry hop 3-7 days.

Just using all centennial hops and ~95% base malt will get you very close to THA.

eBIAB setup is electronic temperature control circuitry whereas the the heat stick is just a heating element on or off, no control. The heat stick is very handy though.

Agree it's the crystal. I'd skip the carapils and maybe do 1/2 lbs of the C40, although you could consider not using any crystal and add something else like a biscuit/victory or amber malt for a...

If you are looking for a quick pilsner-like beer with ale yeast, try Nottingham and ferment on the cold side. It's crisp, clean, and dry. Works great when trying to tweak a recipe or just want to...

Have you had that hop combo before? If not you might try a smaller test batch first like a lower gravity IPA. Make sure you mash low to finish dry. For a beer this big you should probably set your...

The MM2 is the 1.5" two roller mill. The MM2.0 is the 2" two roller mill. I went for the MM2 and it seemed like it was bigger than most others in the price range.

The oxygen absorbing activates when wet so dipping in Starsan or iodophor at bottling is fine. You just don't want to get them wet until you're ready to use.

It's no different than any other recipe. Grain amount depends on your target batch size, OG and overall efficiency.

Ballpark, about 10 lbs of grain will net about 5 gallons of 1.050 wort.
