    Your controller should tell you that in its wiring diagram. Which pins are the TC/RTD input, and which ones are the output. It would vary between controllers.

    You can fill kegs at any temp you want, you just have to put a ton more pressure in the tank to keep the co2 in solution. You're better off cooling it back down and waiting though.

    PAA is not phosphoric, its is Hydrogen Peroxide and Acetic acid. It is the standard in breweries, meat packing and processing, and other even more high risk food and beverage manufacturing.

    Honey is used as an adjunct in brewing. Too much and you can get some off flavors, unless you treat the beer like a mead. The other reason we don't use a ton of it is that is is very expensive.
