Yes, flameout hops provide more flavor than 10-5 min additions because nothing is boiled away with the steam.

The 60-30-15 hop schedule is outdated, most commercial IPA's use very late additions...

Weird. I'm a huge CCB fanboy and Tampa resident, and I didn't like humidor IPA at all. TBH I don't like white oak jai alai either, so maybe I just hate wood infused IPAs.

Scratches aren't a big deal. All buckets come with tons of scratches and huge gashes. Rub your hand over the inside of a brand new bucket the next time you are at the LHBS.

Tannin extraction is caused by high temps and pH. I always squeeze my bags with no tannins in the beer. Even if you just hang the bag from a pulley the grain is under more...

You definitely won't get anything from just .75oz of nibs, if the brewing with chocolate thread is to be believed. Recommendations there start at 5 oz up to a couple pounds.

Then 3-4...

Isn't 4.6 lbs A LOT for a five gallon batch?

I make a great Fuller's Porter clone with 10-12 oz each of brown and chocolate malts.

I've never seen a recipe with even 2 pounds of brown malt!
