The 18 minute mark is almost certainly a mistake. The source of this time limit is from Pesaḥim 46a Mishna: [Regarding] ‘deaf’ dough, if there is [a dough] similar to it which has become leaven, it is forbidden. Gemara: What if there is no [dough] similar to it?―Said R. Abbahu in the name of R. Shimon b. Lakish: [The period for dough to become ...

The Mishna Brura (247:1 sv. 13) And Shulchan Aruch HaRav (O.C. 247:10) both permit covering as a way of avoiding the issue of smell, which is one of the issues that the double covering is designed to avoid. So it would seem that according to those sources, yes, double covering would work.

The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in 114:7 states: אָסוּר לִמְכּוֹר אֶת הֶחָמֵץ לְמוּמָר אוֹ לְמוּמֶרֶת; וְלֹא לְבֶן מוּמֶרֶת, אַף עַל פִּי שֶׁיְלָדַתּוּ מֵאֵינוֹ יְהוּדִי לְאַחַר שֶׁהֵמִירָה, כִּי לְעִנְיָן זֶה דִּינָם כְּמוֹ יִשְֹרָאֵל, וַהֲוֵי לֵהּ חֲמֵצוֹ שֶׁל יִשְֹרָאֵל שֶׁעָבַר עָלָיו הַפֶּסַח דְּאָסוּר בַּהֲנָאָה One may not sell one's Chametz to a Jew ...

For a person to get a Biblically mandated punnishment, they must meet the "shiur" requirement - in this case, eat the volume of a "kzayis" of Chametz within the time span of "kdei achilas pras". The accepted Halacha is that "chetzei shiur asur" - even eating less than this amount (or in a greater time-span) is Biblically prohibited. However, no punnishment ...

The gemara in kiddushin 58a says that the only issurei hana'ah that have a problem of tefisat damim (the prohibition of the monetary exchange) are avoda zara (idolatry), hekdesh (consecrated items**), and peirot shevi'it (produce of the sabbatical year from the land of Israel; I believe even the idolatry issue is only with regard to tikrovet avoda zara ...

Great question, I have my own original answer based on a saying of the Talmud: "Kohanim Zerizim Hem" (Priests are possessed of alacrity {in serving Hashem}) (see Talmud Pesachim 36a and many other places). I have seen the term "zerizus" used for "speed". (see Talmud Pesachim 4a: "Zerizim makdimin Lemitzvos"... "A "zariz" will do a mitzvah at its first ...

According to this article, we do :-) THE LAWS OF PESACH by Rav David Brofsky Shiur #2: The Laws of Pesach Defining Chametz (1) R. Yosef Karo (Shulchan Arukh 462:1-4) rules in accordance with the view of Rabbeinu Tam and the Rambam, who permit matzot made with fruit juice. The Rema, however, concludes that Ashkenazim should refrain from eating matza ...
