Yeah, I figured someone else might have the same kind of problem.
I'm brewing my first brew with it tomorrow. I figure it'll be a few brews before I get the gas/air vent/flame dialed in.

I would agree with the above statement only if you don't have a wort chiller. If you are immersing the bucket into your bath with ice, then maybe you are better off just immersing the pots. But if...

Yes. This is what I do.

I boil my wort in two stainless steel crock pots and, despite the hassle of dealing with two pots, they start boiling faster than one big pot.

Anyhoo, I also use a hard...

It also depends on how big your batch was, was a yeast starter used, what kind of yeast, etc.

1.072 is pretty big, I'd just wait it out.

74 seems a bit warm, but if you brought it down to 70, it should be alright.

It's probably done fermenting but there could be a variety of gases building up and every now and again, you get a bubble.
