comment Boil options with a small pot
Your link to Palmer suggests that the question is about brewing with plain malt extract (adding your own hops). It seems to me that your edit (mentioning pre-hopped extract) totally changes the question. You should boil when brewing with extract, but you should not boil when making beer from a pre-hopped kit, such as Coopers (hopped syrup) or Brew House (slightly concentrated hopped wort).

comment Is there any reason to re-rack and wait another week after dry hopping before bottling?
I think it would be better to put a filter on the end of your racking cane. I use a bit of plastic mesh for window screens, held in place by a bit of wire.

comment Sanitizing with bleach without rinsing
No, they don't need to be completely dry. I give my bottles a shake, then hang them in a bottling tree until I'm ready for them... 30 minutes or so. Then I give them another shake when I take them off the tree. But I think the idea with any no-rinse sanitizer is that it's fine for a few drops -- even quite a few drops -- to get into the beer.

With bottles, I think you'd want to immerse, wait 30 seconds, then drain.

The vinegar adjusts the pH to where it needs to be. See the first link in my answer for more details.

If the information in my answer is correct, for your SANITIZE solution you could (1) increase the bleach to 34 ml, and (2) add 34 ml vinegar, and then you'd have no rinse sanitizer which requires only 30 seconds of contact time.

comment pH Meters and measuring mash pH for the first time
How cheap is a "cheapo meter"? Or, how much should I expect to pay? What brand(s) would you recommend?
