comment in depth cleaning glass bottles
Assuming it was sanitary then there's no harm cooling it, but equally no real harm adding it warm to a small amount of beer that's already in the bottling bucket.

comment Should I have extra wort for boil when using leaf hops?
Nice link. This works as 32*0.15 = 4.8x - so say 5x the dry hop weight. Confirms my answer! :)

How much hops are you using in the recipe and what is the batch size?

comment CO2 tank slowly losing gas, not sure where the problem lies
Disconnect the QD from the post and spray both with starsan - you need to try to nail down if it's a problem with one single item or a problem only when they are connected.

comment CO2 tank slowly losing gas, not sure where the problem lies
there's the keg post and the quick disconnect, usually grey for gas. You mentioned you see bubbles coming from this when plugged into the keg - do you get bubbles from the post or the QD when both are disconnected?

Have you tried adding detergent+water to a spray bottle and spraying that over all the hoses and connections? A leak may then show itself as bubbles.

comment What are some effective, cheap, easy ways to clean and re-use bottles?
This works, but is probably overkill. Cleaners such as Oxiclean and PBW will remove a lot of the crud and labels without any scrubbing if left overnight, and StarSan is a no rinse sanitizer that sanitizes the bottles in a few minutes.

comment Johnson A419 BLE/WiFi Modification
If you really want to use the A419, you could use it to control a fridge, which you then simply monitor with brewpi. If you later get a second fridge, brewpi can also control+monitor that.

comment No-rinse acid sanitizer - is there a risk?
Just to clarify, yes, beer is resilient to spoilage than some would credit it for, but wort isn't, and it's during the time before the yeast have lowered the pH and produced sufficient alcohol that the wort is susceptible to bacterial contaminants.
