I wouldn't do anything for another 2-3 weeks.

I'm sure I read somewhere it was OK to aerate until the SG passed the halfway mark on your planned attenuation. So if you're aiming for ~1.020 from 1.100 then unless it's past 1.060 I think you should be OK. I've never tried it though
I've read something similar, I couldn't remember what the cut-off is. If it were my beer, my cut-off would be a lot more conservative, maybe more like <20-25% of planned attenuation. I'd aerate if gravity > 1.080-84.
Quick oats would be about the same. If you use regular oat,meal, you'll need to cook it first. Quick oats can go right in the mash.
Ehh? Regular oats cook in like 3-4 minutes. I've always put them in the mash.
For real labels, I use Microsoft Publisher. After I print them out I attach them using a glue stick. The glue is water soluble so they come off easily when the bottles are empty. For down and dirty beer ID I just write the batch number on the cap with a Sharpie.Do you just use like a card stock or some other paper. I am not planning on a big production here but for some of the big beers that will be around longer or given as gifts I think it would be neat to design a nice label. Not to mention the fun of coming up with names and descriptions.
It is 210 gallons and yes I did know it is going to be that close.
I used about 430 lb of grain and did do 148 and 160 rest.
It worked out just right.
