Boil off is usually lower indoors because the humidity is usually higher indoors than out....Except in the summer east of Colorado

Too many variables, On my gas stove I would boil off about 1/2 gallon/hour now with my turkey burner I am over 1 gallon an hour.
Since I am working in a non temperature controlled environment I would expect my boil off rate to change depending on the weather.

Did my 1st partial mash yesterday. Boiled off about 1/2 gallon in the 1 hour boil. Electric stove with new burners that heat up faster & more evenly. But harder to hold temp than the old,slower ones. Just can't win.

I would assume 1.5 gallons of boil off if you are doing a full boil. Chances are your going to be between 1-1.5g per 60 minutes, assume 1.5g. You will probably lose .15-.25gal to trub, worst case you end up with 5 to 5.25 gallons of beer. You can always boil off extra water with another 15-20 mins of boil if you over estimate, or just take the extra beer if your gravity is fine.
