How far is it off? If you suspect it's not accurate, the only way...

I would be worried about creasing the plastic buckets when they deform. I'd think that after a few cycles they might begin to weaken and possibly leak.

I don't think having some small amounts of...

If I were going to do a no-chill brew, I would just leave it in the kettle and rack it to the fermenter the next day.

I wonder what effect the extended period of time the beer remains at...

It makes no sense to me how two brewers can follow the same process and it works for one and not the other.

My process is almost exactly the same as yours, right down to the fog in the keg and using the partially removed bucket lid to trap the autosiphon in place. When you have submitted your hoppy pale...

That beer was also oxidized, although to a much lesser degree than my other beers were getting previously. It was actually drinkable, most of the hop flavor and aroma were present, but there was a...

I did the same thing once. My manifold got disconnected and I had to dump the mash out into my kettle, fix the manifold and pour it back in.

As far as gypsum goes, I use about 4 grams in a 5...

I think it would come out fine either way. It's such a tiny amount that you probably wouldn't even be able to tell the difference, even side-by-side.

I haven't seen anyone discuss the hop schedule. With this much grain, you'll really want to do a one hour boil minimum. That being said, most brewers put their bittering hops in at the beginning of...

Does "small scale brewery company" mean you plan to package your beer for sale, to bars or in retail 6-packs?

Does it taste sour or is it over-carbonated? Usually an infected bottle will show one or both symptoms.

What is Chemipro OXI? Is it a cleaner or a sanitizer? Remember that nothing is both.

Yeah there's no way you should be losing that much to trub. I typically end up with 5.5 gallons in the kettle and just under 5 by the time it gets to the keg.
