comment Improving Your Brewing Significantly
I think going all grain has a much lower impact than proper fermentation, knowledge, sanitation, and pretty much everything else. You can get away with DME and a partial mash for many beers, leaving you time and money to focus on more important parameters.

+1 to calibrating in the range you actually use

comment What is 'Batch Size'?
Haha! Who knew pancakes were so helpful. That's a good point, everyone's process is different so a batch might not equate to the same amount of packaged beer. It just seems cleaner to me to think of the finished product. I hate losing a bunch of beer to dry hops and trub and not filling a complete keg.

comment Variable Final Gravity when Priming for Bottle Conditioning
+1 Especially the point about adding beer to sugar solution instead of sugar to beer. You might want to buy a mop (or helmet):D

comment Measuring Dissolved C02
Can I do this on my very lowly carbonated beer in the primary? I'm trying to define how much sugar is necessary given the residual CO2 from fermentation.

@Micheal Just to be clear, the only part of my answer I'm editing is the recommendation to dump. The facts above are all true and you will end up with a low alcohol, cloudy, starchy beer. Your acceptance of the other answer made me worry that you have misunderstood this edit.
