Personally, I boil for ten minutes. I get it cooled, but don't stress too much; the thermometer stays in the drawer. If the bottom of the pot is only warm to the touch, that's good enough for me - it's such a small percentage of the total volume of the beer, as long as it's not scalding, it should be OK.

I boil then add the primer and fetch back to the boil. I leave in a water bath until it's luke warm

Depends on the recipe. That's not terribly big, but not all beers have to be big.
