I agree with poptarts. Also, your big pots (steel? aluminum?) are massive heat sinks and you are losing a lot of heat to the surroundings. I'd highly suggest wrapping your MLT in some sort of...

I would have suggested more 0 minute hops. Not sure what you're dry hopping with, but I'd suggest >2-3 oz per 5 gal. You really want that hop flavor and aroma to come through, since the beer itself...

Scorching won't be a concern. Assuming you are using a controller to control the element output and can dial it back for boiling, bigger is going to be better in terms of heat-up times!

That style of tap is notorious for sticking. It's just the design of it that allows beer to dry-up/sugar and cause the shuttle mechanism to stick.
