I am just about brand new to homebrewing and having a blast! I just finished brewing my first all grain batch and am very excited about it. I was however concerned about how long it took me to bring the wort to a boil. This boil was larger than my 2 previous steeped grains with extract batches. It was about 7 gallons. I currently do not have a designated propane burner, I am boiling on gas stove top.
It took about 40 minutes to bring the wort to boil. Is this an acceptable figure? Would it be recommended to buy a propane burner if I wish to continue boiling this volume of wort? Is it problematic to the wort to take this long to bring it to boil?
Any help or guidance for a new brewer will be greatly appreciated. I am very excited to be undertaking this awesome hobby!!!
