1 gallon plus how much your usually short at the end of the boil. It's impossible for anyone to give you any real answer to that question. Everyone's equipment, technique, and brewing environment are...

It's always a good idea to make a starter with liquid yeast. Just because the yeast is good for a 1.048 batch when it leaves the factory doesn't mean it still is once it reaches you.

As far as...

It's safe to warm it up because most of the sugar is gone by this point. The yeast make most of their off flavors (and eat most of the sugar) during active fermentation. I would take an SG reading to...

Adding a half gallon or so of water to a 5 gallon batch isn't an issue. I'm more concerned that this is a 1 gallon batch and your adding half the final volume with straight water. Your definitely...

Once fermentation is over temp control is no loner needed. If your comfortable in the room the carboy is in then it's good enough for the rest of the 3 weeks before bottling. Just remember to keep...

OG 8 points higher than supposed to be

Is this a partial boil extract beer? If so I would ignore the SG reading. Chances are the wort didn't mix completely with the water. If you drew your sample from the bottom it was thicker and gave...

Under normal circumstances priming sugar does not affect taste. The off flavors your getting in the over carbed beers is because of the excessive amounts of carbonation and still unfermented priming...

An airlock is a pressure release valve not a fermentation indicator. Give it a week then check the SG.

No... You should ship both items to me for proper disposal. (Hoping for an early Christmas present)

Both items are fine just need cleaning.

50% attenuation seems low. Before you get all crazy and start trying to unstick this fermentation confirm that it is actually stuck. Wait 3-4 days and check the SG again. If it hasn't moved then...

Never move a beer anywhere till it's done fermenting. Only your hydrometer will tell you when it's ready. Leave it in the secondary till your ready to bottle. No real rush.

Any one of a hundred reasons. Just keep your mash and fermentation temps steady, pitch enough yeast, and aerate.... Oh and don't forget to pray to Ninkasi.

1. Your going to have to wait till it's done carbonating before you can get a reading. You added sugar to prime which upped your SG reading. As the yeast carbonate they will bring it back down. Just...

An airlock is a pressure release valve not a fermentation indicator. Buckets are notorious for having non-bubbling airlocks because the CO2 is escaping from around the lid. The only real way to tell...

I'm sure it will taste the same but could be the cause of your albino stout. I suggest waiting it out and see if it darkens in the fermenter. The oatmeal may flocculate like yeast and leave your beer...
