With grains you never want to soak them at more than 170 or you'll extract tannic acid... not such a big deal given the amount of grain you're using. Some tannins can be good depending on the beer,...

I'd have to agree with PL. I'd suggest 1.5 to 2 weeks for primary for future batches. I only secondary for dry hopping and like everything to be quite settled before removing it from the yeast cake.

Just want to mention it as I don't think it has been:

I can't say that there is a right way to sparge, just that there are many wrong ways. You don't want your grain bed to get above 170F, and you don't want to dump the wort on the floor. If you go by...

well if you measurements were a little off and you added a little more water that would account for that. Also you have some grain in there that no one can get 100% out of. So if you got 70% out of...

no, not really. Those only work on really dry wine. There are too many sugars in finished beer to use one of those with any accuracy.

seems like a great idea for that scale. I'd recommend hammering some sticks of rebar into the ground and then putting the legs on these to make things more stable.
As for scaling up; it may get...

Well it's very very unlikely anyone grew male plants, since only the females make useful flowers. If for some odd reason it is a male plant, a few seeds in your cones is not that big of a deal.

I'd recommend a blow off tube next time around, but for now, just make sure the lock doesn't clog up. Once it slows down clean the air lock out and it'll be good.
