I bought a turkey fryer recently so I could do full boils. I boiled 7 gallons for one hour to build that oxide layer that I read about on here and in the very center on the bottom it's still a little shiny unlike the rest of the kettle. My question is should I boil again and try to change the bottom or will it be fine as is. Here is a pic.

You'll be fine. One batch of beer and that spot will be gone.

Don't worry about it unless you soak it in starsan or something else acidic. Even if it is shiny, the surface is still oxidized.
