comment Alternative/Non-traditional Brewing Practices
Fullers brewery in London does sort of a batch sparge/partigyle brew. Look it up on recent episodes of the Brewing Network's Can You Brew It

comment Alternative/Non-traditional Brewing Practices
I'm pretty sure I heard Papazian mention still using bucket fermenters in one of the many interviews I've heard. That dude makes good beer, but I don't know if he's into the competition circuit.

comment Low Cost Conical Fermenter
Just pointing out a downside to the seemingly cheap price of the tanks. Ultimately, I would be happier with SS. I converted to using half-barrel kegs and a special fitting for my fermenters. They're not conical, but are stainless and work well.

comment What is the best book for beginning home brewers?
I'd classify this as an intermediate book. It's not advanced and a smart new brewer could get good use from it. I always recommend this to homebrewers that want to improve their beers.

The OP doesn't mention it; Idophor can not be kept indefinitely.

comment Didn't hit gravity--how to calculate how much malt extract to add to the fermenter?
+1 To Brewchez's comment on correcting gravity in the kettle. Pre-boil gravity will tell you exactly what your original gravity will be. Also a good idea to check it before each hop addition until you get the hang of what's going on.
