How do i make sure i have enough yeast? i just rehydrate what they give me in the kit and pitch it? not sure what else i would need to do to make sure its healthy and the proper amount

This has a good pitch rate calculator on it, you can adjust it to fit your setup. I highly suggest always rehydrating any type of Dry Yeast, & make sure it is not too old. Also make an appropriate sized starter when using Liquid.

That's odd that your burner doesn't have a controller on it. You should be able to pick up a 10 or 20 PSI regulator at most hardware stores.
