A much easier way is to take about 1/2 to 1 gallon of the first runnings and put them in a seperate pot and reduce it at least to half and return it to to main boil.

Didn't brew anything. Went away for the weekend and then yesterday's brewing day turned into a mowing day! Oh well...gotta get some brewing done soon! Otherwise, I'll be the one with no homebrew!
