I closed mine down to .32.  A finer crush helps increase efficiency but you can go too far.  I went down to .25 - .28 and it was like sparging concrete.  8^)

Grain conditioning does help if you are going close up the gap.  Give the mill a try at .39 and see how it works.  You can always play with it later.

It's more than likely fine.  CO2 was blowing out through the port the whole time and that C)2 was filling your keezer with CO2 too so it isn't a very hospitable growth environment anyway. 

If it tastes fine I would just keep going with it.  No point in throwing it away until you have some evidence that something is wrong.  I've had the bubble lock blow out before, sometimes for days, and it didn't cause any issues.

Nice setup.  It reminds of all the stuff I learned in electronics tech school and have long since forgotten.   :-\

Keith, did you post the correct link?  Or is my lack of coffee showing this morning?  It's probably just me but what does water ice on the moon have to do with drunk pregnant women?

A glass of beer or wine isn't really an issue now and then for a pregnant woman.  Knocking back a sixer would be a problem though.

That's very noble of you, but I think I can survive. I washed everything in the sink and have clothes drying everywhere. Makes me feel a little more alabama.  ;)

garc_mall, are you not at the conference? I'd buy you a beer if you got some time to spare Sunday.

Most hotels have a laundry service or at least washing machines available if the "Europe on $2/day" method doesn't work out.   ;D

I use in a couple of recipes.  I've never had any issues with it but as other have said some people really dislike this yeast.

In answer to the copper pipes question; I'm assuming you are talking about your manifold and there isn't any need to solder the connections.  When I used a copper manifold I never soldered it because it made cleaning easier if I could take it apart.  The seams will just act as more places the mash can filter through.

Many on here (including) me will suggest that you use a braid instead of a manifold if you are going to batch sparge.  If you're going to fly sparge then you are fine with a manifold.

+1 on the ways people have suggested to seal up the port.
