4-4.5 if I can keep the kids happy and out of the way.  That includes set up and clean up after.

I am not familiar with the yeast you're using, but i think it is way to much.  The last beer I bottle conditioned  I used 1tsp of CBC-1 to make a 100ml slurry.  I then used 4 tsp of the slurry and the appropriate amount of priming sugar (120grams ish) to carbonate 5 gallons of a Dark Saison I aged on fruit with Brett for 6 months to 2.5 psi.  I am by no means an expert, would hate for you to end up with a bunch of bottle bombs, just check your calculations again.

I am a big fan of Bukowskis Tavern, they have two locations: Boston near the Pru and Cambridge.  They serve up great pub food along with an above average beer menu.  The Public House in Brookline is fantastic but a bit of a train ride.  You should check out Sullivan's Tap just for fun.

I tried real hard to support the 3 LHBS with in 30 minutes of me, one is ridiculously over priced and the other 2 have horrible business models.  I would routinely place an order via email tell them I would be over on my lunch break, they would respond all set.  I would get over there and either get the owe we are all out of that or some other excuse.  I now rely on one of the big online suppliers for 70% I my supplies.  The third local place has been closed for renovations for 4 months, I emailed then about estimated opening date and never heard back.  Guess I will stay with the online ordering for a while.

Beer Travel / Re: Trip to Boston and Burlington

LOrd Hobo in Somerville is by farm the best beer/food bar in or near Boston in my opinion.  Bukowskis has two locations one near the Pru and one in Cambrige, this is my second favorite beer/food bar in Boston.  As far as Burlington goes I would skip Vt pub other than being Noonan's place there is nothing special about it.  The Farmhouse Tap and grill is solid but a little pricey.  I would recommend Hitting Three Pennys in Montpelier on the way by, this place is my favorite Vt bar.  Also if you do stop in Waterbury and are looking for a real nice place check out Hen of the Wood (again a little pricey) it is similar in food style to Armsby Abbey but not quite as solid beer menu.  Also near Pro Pig is the Reservoir and Blackback pub, both have solid beer menus as well.  IMHO I would skip Burlington and stay in the Waterbury/ Montpilier area I thought the scene was much better, my wife thought differently.
