comment Bottle Conditioning with Saison Yeast - Any adjustments to priming sugar necessary?
I disagree @CodingSpike, bottle bombs are very possible from just the bottling sugar. I know this from experience.

comment plastic storage for bottles
I have URLs for South African sites, not sure if that will help you (not sure of your location). Google for "Catering Suppliers", "Plastic Manufacturers". Or go to a hotel and ask where they buy their equipment.

comment Pitched dry yeast into 57F wort, underfilled the fermenter with water… have I ruined my batch?
The brown color might be a few things: 1) Old extract. 2) You poured the extract into a pot that was being heated, causing the sugars to become very dark 3) Excessive boiling (boiling too vigorously). The caramel might be from nr 2 or 3. Diacetyl can be removed (next time) by doing the following: When the beer has done fermenting, allow the beer's temp to rise by a few degrees (I usually do about 4C) and leave it there for a day. This will get rid of most diacetyl. It might be the ticker body that is creating the concept of higher ABV... not sure.

comment What's the best way to ship bottles of beer 3000km in hot weather?
We have similar issues, with the addition of theft of parcels. Shipping glass is easy! It is expecting the glass to arrive in the same shape that is the issue.

comment dry hopping in primary?
Welcome to homebrewing, where there are 3 correct answers for every question! :) Remember that most people work on "this works for me", and it might, but something else in their system/technique might be the magic. I only dry-hopped in secondary once because there was no way that 600g of whole hops would fit into my carboy!
