All good with sanitation, much practice from wine making.. As to a "flameout".. Could you explain that a bit more for me? When do I do it? What do I do? what does it do? ect.. Thanks so much for the help and advise. I will post my progress and results here as I go.

flameout hops = zero minute hops = hops you add just as you stop the boil.

hops that are boiled for 60 minutes give bitterness - all the flavor and aroma are boiled away. hops that are boiled 10-15 minutes contribute mostly flavor - delicate aroma compounds are mostly boiled away, but flavor remains. hops boiled for 5 minutes or less provide mostly aroma. so adding hops at flameout means that they are barely boiled and provide the most aroma. you can further enhance aroma by dry-hopping: throwing hops in to your fermenter once fermentation is done. leave them in there for 3-7 days, then rack off to a bottling bucket or keg.

Drinking: a belgian pale ale, a belgian imperial stout, an Epic 09.09.09 clone, a brett'ed saison
Carbing: a hop-bursted APA, a citra farmhouse
Fermenting: an abbey ale (to be soured)
Aging: an oud bruin, a BDSA/Dubbel thingy, a soured fruit saison, my "wild oats" brett/sour, a saison with a brett mix added at bottling.
Up next: TBD, probably not brewing again until july.

I picked up "4" 1oz packs of hopunion cascade hops. I am thinking of adding some at flameout for nice aroma sinse the LME is already hopped and I should be ok on bitterness? Does this sound ok? How many ounces should I add? I like hoppy, just not over the top. Though I actually dont know this for sure having never drank many craft beers.. Just going for something average. Wow, I have a lot to learn..

Try adding an ounce at 2-3 minutes from flame out. Then leave it to steep for a bit before chilling the wort. I did this with my pm cascade pale ale kit,& it was pretty good. I thought it gave a nice lil boost to the overall balance.

What's the reason for the first 40 minutes of boiling if hops are only being added for the last 10?

Bittering hops at 60 minutes,flavor at 20 or so on down to aroma 5 or less. If one is using pre-hopped extract,usually pre-bittered,then only flavor/aroma hops would be added.

So I dont need to boil if the lme is already hopped? Or just bring to a boil to add the aroma hops?

Right-o! I believe, if it is pre-hopped LME, then there is no need for a full-length boil. So, you determine the length of the boil based on what you want from the hops you are using, like Uniondr mentioned.
