I always use whirlfloc and cold crash. They come out crystal clear and are a summer favorite by everyone who has it. The longer you can cold condition it (Lager) at around 34F, the better it will be....

I don't like much crystal in my IPA's. If it were me, I would drop the CaraPils and cut the Crystal by 50%.
5.2 is a waist of $ and does nothing for your beer, IMO.
All else looks great.

Use a standard racking cane and a carboy cap (double spout type). Tilt the carboy while racking. After cold crash, I have very little beer left behind, maybe a cup. I personally don't like the auto...

A bad or damaged (out) post o-ring can drain a keg quick. But if you filled and pressurized with water and no leak was found, :confused:

The only inherent flaw is in testing to much to soon.

I cant really tell you how much you should pull for a test as your beer lines and setup differ from mine and others. Only you can determine...

My beer lines are coiled on top of the kegs and the faucets are above that point. Usually, my first few onces are higher pressure/carbonation and it evens out after that.

It must not actually be 25F or it would freeze. I keep mine at 36F and it's about right for my taste for Pales and IPA's. A normal bottled beer in a regular fridge is usually 38F.

It shouldn't gush like that after just 2 weeks. How long did you let it ferment. Sounds like there was still some fermentation going on when you bottled. How much sugar did you put in the batch and...

Same here. 4 or more ounces of pellets gets a bag. 3 or less goes straight in.
Whole cones go straight in regardless of amount.
