Do u have a lid on it? Might help to get it to a better boil. But you'll need to keep an eye on it so u don't boil over.

Make the investment in a turkey fryer. Its well worth it.

It'll be fine. The yeast will re-activate once it gets back to room temp.
I would let the bottles sit for at least 3 weeks before trying one.
