comment Dry Hopping Question
I echo @bughunter! Just drop the pellets into your primary and wait a week. NOTE: You may see some "secondary fermentation" goings on. Do not worry. This is from the disturbance caused by adding the hops and some CO2 releasing, and from the yeast enjoying the oxygen that came in with the hops. Secondaries are recommended when you are going to leave the beer in the fermenter for months/years, like when you add fruit to a lambic. If you want to dry hop for months, then do secondary.

comment How does open fermentation yield alcoholic beer?
Even boiling an alcoholic drink does not always burn away all the alcohol (unless you boil away all the liquid).

The barrels were treated with tar, so the beer was not in contact with the wood. I am not 100% sure about the details. I am sure there are some references from coopers that will tell you exactly what was done with the barrels.

comment missing blow off water
Shoot! That is a lot! Taste the beer, as Danny says. HOWEVER: If it does taste funny, re-connect all your fermentation connections and let the beer warm up. I remember reading that the yeast can consume the starsan (if it is diluted enough to not kill them all). If it tastes good, call it a Crossley!

comment What are some good starter books to learn how to brew beer?
Podcasts are also a great source of information. Basic Brewing Radio and The Jamil Show should be listened to from the first episode. :)

How to brew covers the very basics to quite advanced topics (which you can skip on the first read). Highly recommended.
