comment Any drawback in heating the mash with grains in?
Could a longer heating time have any adverse effect? What would a longer time spent on the glucanase / protease range cause, considering I'm using 'modern malts'? Would I see more break? Would I see changes in mouth feel?

comment Fermenting, carbonating and dispensing using the same (corny) keg?
Trying it a the moment, my corny kegs are made in Italy and apparently are from a 'safer design', the gas and liquid valves have slightly different shapes, which mean one quick disconnect will only fit were it meant to (either gas or liquid). Also, my gas valve probably have some protection against beer going back into the co2 bottle, I couldn't use it as blowoff, it simply kept the pressure in the keg exactly as if it wasn't there (and I had to carefully bleed the CO2 via the pressure relief valve when I realized that). Now I'm bleeding manually every few hours. Spunding valve is on the way..

On step 1, how do you figure out the fermentation is slowing down?

This sounds like a working system. Have you tried dry hopping?

Given that most of the trub residue will stay in the kettle after the whirlpool and transfer, unless I have a very tick yeast layer, I suppose clogging can be avoided

Did you use a hop bag or keg dry-hopping is just a no-no?

comment Bucket Heaters and Condensation safety / Lid considerations
Wouldn't those sulfur compounds evaporate again after he removes the lid, even if they condensate back into the wort while the lid is on?
