Thanks all......well brew day went fine with only a couple of hiccups.
1-definitely need a propane burner as it took well,over an hours to boil 6gallons.
2-I had to leave the lid on the pot to get a good rolling boil. I know it's a no-no but I've got a 10 gallon pot and watched it like a hawk. No boil overs...!!
3-made sure I sanitized, sanitized, sanitized. Probably too much but better safe than sorry...lol.
4-used my wort chiller and was perplexed a little. I know it works, it's basic science but I figured the water coming out would've been a lot hotter. But it did cool the wort down to 75ish in about 20 minutes or so.
5-transferred to my fermenter and voila as of this morning I have fermentation, so must have done something right.
Now just let it sit in my closet for awhile and have patience.
I can see this hobby getting very in depth in the future....!!
