You could do that, the only issue is, the yeast will only last a few weeks. With slanting, they will last a year or more.

You may want to check the Constitution again before you invoke it in an argument.

This should be simple. Most PIDs have a built in relay that can switch a few amps, so you would only need to add the 3 way switch.

However, why do it this way? Why not do it the Kal way and set...

Did you use DME for priming? I've heard that this can cause a krausen ring in the bottle, but it wouldn't really make sense for only a single bottle to be affected.

If this is something that really keeps you awake at night with worry, I would just buy two temp controllers. Wire them in series so they both have to be closed for the fridge to kick on.

Definitely do 10/4 cable (usually labeled as 10/3 with ground). The price difference is almost non-existent, and then you'll have that extra conductor there if you decide you want it.

You can buy 32 oz of StarSan online for $16. So $0.50/oz undiluted, which is 10 cents per gallon of diluted solution.

Yeah, so equipment loss should be 0. The little bit of liquid left in the pot is part of trub loss. And as far as figuring boil off rate, you can just test it with water.
