Yes. ;)

For 5-6 gal of average-gravity lager, one pack in a 2-3 L starter, two packs in a 1-2 L starter, or four packs direct pitched.
This is what I do. No problems whatsoever.

I do the following for my Christmas Ale:
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1.5 tsp nutmeg
.5 oz ginger root

I add them at 5 minutes left in the boil.

I have not read the book, yet. But, Brad Smith did talk to Ms. Talley on his podcast a few weeks ago. See link below:

Thanks for posting. I haven't seen any in my beer, thankfully.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Tighthead Brewing Powerful Pils

German Pils guidelines (BJCP 2015) are 4.2%-5.2% ABV. IBU are 22 - 40. Hops used are the German Noble Hops (Hallertau, Spalt, Tettnang, etc.). The beer is usually clear, at least that is what I shot for.
Czech Premium Pale lager (or Bohmeian Pils) guidelines (BJCP 2015) are  4.2% - 5.8% ABV, IBU are 30 - 45. Hops used are Saaz hops. This beer is also usually clear.
When I brew my versions, I just use pilsen malt. 
So, is what you have there a pils? Probably not. Ultimately what matters is does the beer taste good and do you enjoy it. So maybe it is a NEIPL.
Hope this helps.

When I bottle, I put my bottles (about 52) in the dishwasher with pbw. I put it on the sanitize cycle. During that time, I prepare to priming solutions and do my set up. When the dishwasher is done, I would have the bucket of beer with priming solution ready to go. I remove the bottles, fill them all up, then cap. I haven't noticed any issues doing it this way. Hope this helps.

I bought mine last winter. It's an amazing piece of equipment and worth every penny.
