Sounds fine, but I'd try to find someone to give the extra beer to if it was me. I like to bottle a few from the keg to give away.

70 is too warm for ambient, I shoot for 60-65 depending on the yeast. You could also probably get some great results with a neutral lager strain at those temperatures without the need to waste energy.

In the water show on Basic Brewing with Kai Troister (spelling?), he mentioned that 5.2 will basically prevent the PH from getting above 5.7 (I believe) - it doesn't lock it in at 5.2

If at high krausen I'd toss the whole flask, since there are a lot of active yeast cells in suspension. If you want to decant, you should chill it in the fridge for several hours first.

Your yeast viability will be low, though it depends on the temperature. 70 degrees for a year, it's probably dead. 50 degrees, there's probably enough. I'm not sure I would age on a yeast cake that...

If you read the package, you're not supposed to let it sit that long. I bet that your beer is fine, but you did underpitch so you might get more estery/phenolic flavors than you were looking for.

I disagree - you should be able to brew satisfying beer with extract. At this point moving to all grain before he fixes the issue might just make it harder. I think I moved to all grain too early -...

Try drinking sips of water in between drinks of beer, otherwise make stronger beers (Sierra Nevada PA has a strong hop bitterness and high carbonation)

What temperature did you take your gravity reading at? Did the wort look drastically lighter or hazier than your extract brewing?

Maybe and yes. The grain can be crushed as finely as you like, so long as it's not shredding hulls. This may result in a stuck mash, but will increase efficiency.

If you run the drill too fast,...

It seems like it might screw with your mash/sparge ph. Palmer says that a dramatic change between mash and sparge ph can extract tannins.

You may have just gotten a bad batch. I know they were planning on adding a bunch of new fermenters, but I'm not sure if it's happened yet. I hope they up production, we can't get it in Iowa anymore...

You can pry it off, just be careful. You don't want to scratch your nice chrome! I like to just use both hands, and dig my fingers into the crack.

You could probably do either, but it seems like it would be easier to set up some sort of an air recirculation system. It would be cheaper too, you could just use a cheap fan.

You could boil it, but if it fermented enough to blow off the top, I'd be tempted to just see how it turns out.

Also, aren't you nervous about racking hot wort to a carboy?

I've thought of that too, it seems like a waste to heat air in a house to try to cool it back down again, especially as I think heating is more efficient.
