Many of us make a concentrated wort by just boiling about 2 gals and all the malt ingredients and top it off in the primary.

You need to do more research before you start brewing.

Are you even 21 years old yet?

I totally agree. It sounds form your posts that you have no idea how the process works, and while you'll find loads of information on this site, you need to research it further. Everything you've asked so far has been covered in here before. Search for it. Hate to be a jerk, but that's the way I see it.
