If you use this method to pour directly into a glass and it foams too much then maybe you're over carbonated in the keg?

This early in your brewing career I wouldn't worry about the haze just yet. Get your process down before you go tweaking with it.
You added quite a bit more malt and sugar to this second batch,...

Right off the bat I recommend getting an additional vessel for primary fermentation so you're not rushing your beers.

4 days in primary then racking to secondary is way too fast. If this is...

After 2 years I finally had my first boil over!

Oh well at least it's just a sweet stout so it's not like THAT should be very sticky. Ah the smell of burnt sugar on a hot day... :cross:
As soon as it happened I thought I heard a faint "hooray!"...

My first skeeter pee batch now smells like rubber. I followed the recipe exactly until it hit 1.000 when I siphoned it into a glass carboy.

Let's talk score sheets, hilarious/ludicrous comments

I'm curious to read the comments you've seen on your BJCP score sheets that 'judges' have made that are questionable at best and/or downright laughable at worst.

You're probably right. I guess I just like the simplicity of direct pitching, and since I've never had a bad experience so far with this approach I find it hard to switch methods.

You could be right Shelly, but taking that long for a starter seriously screws with a brewing schedule.
