It might be sensible to make a couple of medium-strength malt oriented beers that you can count on to stick around longer. They're a good fallback.

Old thread, but Wikipedia says that Distiller's Malt is high in nitrogen, so presumably that makes in useful when a lot of adjuncts are being added to the mash. Same idea as its diastatic power.

If you think it needs a bit longer just give it some more time in primary.

"Considerably lower" doesn't sound like something that would be caused by a half gallon here or there. Are you getting the kits from reputable sources? Are you topping up with water? That would be a...

I hang mine up so that it drips out. It's probably not the quickest way, since I suppose you could rig up some kind of hairdryer thing.

I'd put the honey in sooner than the end of primary to maintain fermentation rather than restarting it. But given all the other flavours you're aiming to include, I doubt it will come through very...

You can get away with throwing it in the boil, but it's not uncommon to add sugar after fermentation is underway. However, I'd advise adding it when fermentation is peaking, rather than when it is...

I think that technically, as ajf pointed out, the special roast and the dark crystal moves it a little bit outside of typical ESB range, but certainly not impossible.

While EKG might be ideal for the Scottish ale, you can probably get away with almost anything, since you'll probably only need bittering hops. (Of course, its not true that bittering hops add no...

You can add the extract and crystal at the start, but you can add part of the extract towards the end so that you get better hop utilization during the boil. (Hop utilization is increased in lower...

As some others have pointed out, your most likely candidate is probably milling, especially if you're not having any trouble with a slow sparge. Try getting a finer grind.

I usually do 6.5g to hit 5.5g after 60 minutes. That way I can usually get about 5g into the fermenter. Remember that this means you need gravity points and IBUs for about 5.5g.

From what I understand, though I'm willing to be corrected, oats in large proportions are bad for head retention, although they can be beneficial in smaller amounts.

I'd avoid the oats and coffee, since those involve a lot of oils and in moderate amounts are bad for head retention. The Carafa, as people have already point out, won't have the roasted bite that...

I would say it's a cream ale, since you're not including aroma hops. However, if you intend to split some of the hops for a later addition, you might get away with calling it a blonde ale. However,...
