comment I just had my Big Mouth Bubbler carboy shatter, now I'm terrified
I ferment in 10 gallons stainless kegs, but if I hadn't acquired them, I'd be using plastic. Glass carboys are just disasters waiting to happen.

Have you tried this technique with brewing grains? It's not clear from your answer.

comment High FG / Low Attenuation across 3 different beers
The question is about attenuation. Does pH affect attenuation? I understand that it can lead to poor mash conversion, but surely that would only affect the starting gravity.

comment What effect does adding flaked corn to a recipe have?
You make an interesting point. I was thinking that "body" is the same as "residual sugars". Since corn ferments out completely, it does not changes the residual sugar in the final beer, and, to my way of thinking, therefore does not change the body. But maybe it's better to think of body as relating more to the final gravity of the beer, uncorrected for alcohol content. In this conception of body, corn does decrease body by increasing the alcohol content and hence lowering the final gravity.
