I loose almost 1.5gl per/h. So id have more pre boil than another guy
K, thanks. I only brewed 3 batches with my new system so I still don't have a good feel for the evaporation rate per hour. Guess I'll start out with about 6.75 gallons this time.

Just finished brewing an extract version and had an OG of 1.054 - I expected it to be a little higher than OP's, as I used 6 lbs of light LME. My hydro sample was very tasty and I am hoping these 4 weeks go by fast =)

My wife just made me brew this, OK...I really just needed more beer and she loves the caramel beers and ambers so it was a no brainer. This was a fun one to brew and I'm very excited to see how it comes out, thanks for the recipe!

I'm getting ready to brew a batch and was wondering what the pre boil volume for a five gallon batch should be, and what the OG & FG targets are. Thanks.

Preboil will depend on your boil off rate. I do about 7.50 to get 6 when I'm done. I rack about 5.5 and leave a lot of crap behind.
