In my experience, processing agents don't affect Kosher status. In my company's case, we used gelatin from pig bones. As with any religion, there are variations in strictness depending on the sect.

Alcohol comes from fermented sugars, so that's pretty much what you have to work with. There's different kinds of sugar: Either increase your grain bill for more maltose or you could use DME. Or...

Blackprinz is darker roast more like Carafa III, but if you are going for black anyway...
Blackprinz does have an awesome smooth chocolatey coffee flavor. I keep it in stock at home.

Hop blocker definitely impedes whirlpool. I use it, and position my recirculation output so the clear wort flows through the coil at the thing so at least the trub gets pushed away from it. I have...

I guess I am not going for flash-cooling my wort. My 50' of 1/2" copper IC gets my 12 gallons to 65F in 10-15 minutes and I have been pretty happy with that. I have a plate chiller I use sometimes...

This is my experience as well. If 13=0, then midpoint is 31! (I know, inflammatory). I guess the confusing spot for me is a 28 point beer that is just not quite the right style, but a good tasting...

It is true I like the aroma of my beer to be smelled in the other room as its pouring from the tap. But, normally I do 1.5oz Citra and 1.5oz Amarillo or something. So you may be right.
