Depends on the gravity. Larger strike and sparge vols for higher-grav batches require a longer boil to get down to 5.5g final vol. Today, I made a low-gravity English Ale, so I only boiled for 60m. I would have been done earlier, but my mash went like 25 minutes long because I had to cook eggs and have breakfast with the wife.
Gotta say, the new bayou classic burner is awesome. Keeps a rolling boil on a relatively low setting, and seems to be pretty efficient compared to the old walmart specials I was using. Everything went over without a hitch, too...that's what I get for brewing sober, I guess. I even remembered the irish moss...can't tell you how many times I forget the IM until like 5 mins before flameout because I'm 3 pints in...
