I don't know... I have an old crusty carboy (glass) that still has gunk inside... and beer hoses that grew legs and walk around (from sitting in the hot garage after a party). I wouldn't trust it......

I'm working into this too... I hate the heavy glass carboys so use better bottles now. Besides, if I used the pails, I'd buy new ones each brew since I am so lazy about cleaning some times! :o

I've done a few all nighters too. My neighbors didn't appreciate all the water hose cleaning and pot scrubbing at 3AM! Plus it's a PITA when your brew day starts warm enough for shorts, but you end...

I'd not use an airlock but release pressure now and then. Secondaries still ferment and produce CO2 - if you put a spunding valve on you won't have to worry about it and can start the carb process...

Yeah I missed the dilution tool - very simple in hindsight. I was trying to see the addition as a part of the recipe - i.e. add water. When I add the water there, no changes happen to the Gravity...

Won't the water addition change the bitterness profile? According to BeerSmith it dilutes the recipe as a whole - or that's the result from how I'm trying to use it. The new version is very...

I checked my gravity tonight and am down to 1.028 (1.034 4-5 days ago) from an OG of 1.080. According to BeerSmith, that's 6.81% (targets were 1.076 -> 1.018 for 7.61%). I think I need to scale...

I'm making this for the SWMBO - you should check out Sam's site, they give a lot of detail on their brews. I use Wyeast 1084 or Danstar Notty - both work really well.
