I enjoy making and drinking lots of different beer, but my favorites tend to be Belgian style ales. But then again, there's nothing like a nice fresh IPA.

I won a "best of show" for a Southern English Brown ale, which I then got to help brew at Howe Sound Brewing. London Town Brown: https://untappd.com/beer/320937

Google "whirlfloc half" and you'll find plenty of sources suggesting using half a tablet for 5 gallons.

comment Make American 2-row taste like Pilsen
This is very interesting, but I'd say that it depends on the pils malt. I think if you had compared an American pale malt with Weyermann Floor-Malted Bohemian Pilsner Malt, for example, you would have noticed significant flavor differences.

comment Yeast overdose?
You can't stop fermentation by putting a lid on the jug. That would just (potentially) explode the jug. But if you just let it go a few days after putting the lid on you might be okay.

comment Yeast overdose?
The packets of EC-1118 I've had are, I would guess, about 1 teaspoon. If you used one of those, it doesn't seem like much, event for a small amount of juice like 2 liters. You'll soon know how it turned out, but I wouldn't do anything to try to "fix" it now. I'm not sure how you're planning to package it, but normally you have to let something ferment until it is done, rather than an arbitrary time period like "a week".
