Awesome - Best of luck.

Since collaboration brews seem to be the 'in thing' among pro-brewers, have you & Major considered doing one?
that is a great idea but we live quite apart.
As far as Pro-brewer thing. I am still working on license.
I hope to have it done by the end of the year.

I think you need to alternate between acid and caustic wash to remove beer stone.
Depending on thickness of beerstone you need to do it several times.
Acid5 from Five Star Chemicals is supposed to be very effective but I an not sure if we can buy it in LHBS.
Star San is a mild acid that might work too.
To increase efficiency of cleaning solutions you can heat them up (do not exceed recommended temps).

Cinnamon? Really? :P
Cinnamon is antioxidant.
May be that was the reason.

Mr malty pitching rate calculator can help you with your first question.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Why mash for 60 minutes?
« on: October 30, 2010, 09:28:15 AM »
As Bluesman mention one way to experiment with it would be to measure your mash OG at different time.
When your gravity does not go up anymore you are converted.
Also your mash speed depends on Mashing temp.
Higher temp faster conversion.

All that said we should mash our grain to get certian fermentable profile instead of how fast it converts.
This should also apply to commercial brewers.   
Just saying.

Edit: I wonder how well a 5 inch diameter ball will fit into the lid opening of a corny keg??
I would say no.
