I did a 2 row cascade and S05 smash this summer and people loved it. I made mine around 4.5% and 30 IBU - very sessionable.

Increase your grain bill and reduce your mash time. You can get conversion in way under an hour. Do a no chill BIAB with a monster burner and you should be pretty fast.

You're gonna have to buy a fridge/freezer and temp controller.

The air lock tells you nothing about fermentation. Go by your hydrometer. I'd give it 3 weeks in primary, if not more - then secondary for a while - at that gravity, probably quite a while - I used...

I've done at least a dozen batches with 05 both dry and rehydrated, never saw much difference. I find it to start quickly, ferment clean, finish primary in a few days and flock hard after a cold...

I use a ghetto ugly junk grain mill and wheat and rye are noticeably harder than barley. I BIAB, so I grind a lot of flour as I can't get stuck. I have never had issues, but I haven't done more than...

I'd bring it to room temp, hit it with gelatin and then chill it back down for a week. Good luck.

I have a 25' 3/8 and do 5 gal batches. I don't think 1/2" would help much, as that would increase flow faster than the coil could absorb heat. Honestly, I think a 25' prechiller run into a 25' wort...

The only point is people get all concerned about hops and break material getting into fermenter. I usually end up with a lot of that stuff in the fermenter and think it hurts nothing.

Cold crash and siphon carefully and totally unnecessary. As for conditioning out a green beer - just don't put flaws into your beer in the first place.

Almost all my beers are 3 weeks primary,...

That head is going to reduce as your burst settles down to service pressure. At least that's what I've noticed in mine. You may be noticing a little carbonic bite now also - anyhoo - vent off your...

As a basic, high level statement - I would say beers of similar OG need similar conditioning.

If I had to make a 4% stout that needed to be ready to drink in 8 weeks from a keg, I'd feel okay...

Glass doesn't have a flavor, nor does it impart or retain flavors - except maybe pickle jars.
