As a follow-up, this beer took 1st in its category of "mammoth beers" (OG >1.090) in a local competition. It's a solid, solid beer, and the longer you keep it on hand, the better it gets.

If you turn down the temp on your burner, even though it's boiling, it will boil off less.

Yeah, i typically boil for 60-90min and get around 12% boiloff. Usually ~1gal per hour. I was working with a 5.1gal MLT at this time, so i made up for that with the addition of the DME and corn sugar, as well as the longer boil. The sugar helped to dry it out down to 1.013, i believe.

You don't need a monstrous boil - just enough to turn over the liquid in the kettle and to vaporize such things as DMS precursors, etc.
