    Sounds crazy to me I own 2 the 19L and the 30L and never have this problem. I whirlpool in the kettle for 20 mins . and let it rest for 45 minutes.

    PAC man yeast

    Pacman is a beast I use it a lot and have it on the stir plate now. I think Wyeast is the only one that makes it.

    Fermenting an IPA..How long?

    All my beers I do not see a need for a second vessel. Pitch and ferment in one vessel when fermentation is done its done. I dry hop in the primary when fermentation is 70-80% done leave for a week and keg. This is the Tasty McDole method and I like it a lot.

    You will still benefit from the whirfloc I only use a half tab per 5 gallons. I would still dry hop even though not a fan of cascade as a dry hop.

    My overly complicated method of temperature control for yeast starter

    I use a home made stir plate which keeps it warm, other than that I never worried about it.

    yeast stuck. like, stuck.

    I take mine out of the fridge the morning of brew day. I decant just about most of the liquid off the top of the yeast. Then an hour before pitching I stick it back on the stir plate to loosen them all back up and have the stir plate warm things up a bit.
