Well, brew day is over and I'm satisfied with the results...given the number of unknowns I had to deal with:
1. new burner
2. new, larger stockpot
3. 1st all grain
Apparently I miscalculated how much I'd lose to evaporation during the boiling (maybe the burner was on too high?) so I came up about 2/3 of a gallon short of my target. Not too bad though since after topping it off I still managed to hit my target OG. Actually I overshot it by about .02....but it's a learning experience and I definitely have a few lessons learned to go over for next time.
Which is going to be in two weeks I'd say. I got that itch
