Still interested as well. I'd most likely want:
3 x F101 Franco Belges Pilsen
1 x F201 Franco Belges Pale

Maybe some candi sugar too, but not if it's going to be a pain.

I've used both. I did one keggle with the saw and 2 with a grinder. The Grinder is much easier, much faster and will give a much cleaner cut. I'd never use anything but a grinder again.

I usually change out all my tubing every 4 or 5 batches. It's cheap and it doesn't make sense to me to try and save $1.50 of tubing and risk ruining a batch of beer.

Agree with all of the above. If you really don't like a sweet stout, you can brew another batch mashing for attenuation (149-150 degrees) which should get you down to 1.010 or so and then just blend...

+1 on back to the fermentor. You'll end up with aobut 1.5% more abv than you planned, but that's not such a bad thing. Especially compared to 50 detonations.

As long as you didn't sneeze into the fermenter, you're fine. CO2's heavier than air, so it will displace air/oxygen and leave only CO2 touching the beer.

1 pound of candi sugar adds about 38 points per gallon. So in a 5 gallon batch, it would add ~ 7 points to your OG, or roughly 0.8% abv.
