Not in my experience,no. I add LME at flame out,cover & steep for 15 minutes. Even though pastuerization happens about 162F. Ciovwering & steeping the wort accompishes this,since the wort is still 180F+ at this point.

I make extract kits with a 3.5 gallon pot. Just follow what the thread says and you'll be fine.

Alright. So I don't need to cool as fast as possible? Or as long as temp is above a certain level? ( http://www.howtobrew.com/section1/chapter7-4.html it's my current reference )

After steeping,I do an ice bath. Put BK in the sink,fill to top of sink with ice,then top that off with water. I have a floating thermometer in the BK while chilling down to pitch temp. Then pour all through a fine mesh strainer into the FV. Top off with chilled water stir roughly for 5 minutes.

Just to make sure, the LME I add count as the total of "liquid" in my recipe right?

What I mean is if my partial boil is 4 GAL, all the LME in the partial boil count toward the 4 GAL right? It's not 4 GAL of water + the LME

Basically,yes. you have to account for total volume of water + any additions.

Is the amount of water lost during stepping of any concern?

I'm about to brew my first beer, which explains the huge amount of questions

It's not as critical when steeping. After the steep,do your boil as usual. Then adjust the volume with top off water in the fermenter to recipe volume. That's what I've always done.

Kontrol,

When I was doing split boils on my stove I used fermcap-s to keep boil overs to a minimum allowing me to fill my pots nearly to the top.

Hey thanks guys for the tips. I finally made my first brew and realized many things. First off yeah, I boiled 1 gal per hour or so. And I should get a new pot, problem is, I'd like to finally do all grain so I'd like to plan what I should buy. And my stove is one with the glass surface, so I don't know what's the limit of weight I can put on it.
