Well now I have a huge flame with too much gas and not enough air.

I had to put everything away because my wife was coming home for lunch and I didnít want to get caught messing with her stove. Curiosity got the best of me and I took it apart again. One of the times that I removed the needle valve it dropped inside. The service guy was monkeying with these when the stove was installed and apparently he did the same thing. The one I picked out from under the burner wasnít the one I had drilled. It had a .077 hole instead of the .052 that I drilled. Guess Iím not as bad a F-up as I thought.
Time for a boil test!

Our tap water is well below 60 degrees. The 6 gallon test went from there to boiling in 52 minutes. From mash temperature (~150) to boiling took less than 20 minutes. It was a good rolling boil, so I think more volume is possible. Before this, 4 gallons was my maximum boil size and that was a weak boil, so this is a big improvement.

Just yesterday I was playing with it again. It’s getting plenty of gas, but more air would help. The only way I can enlarge the opening where air is drawn though is using a Dremel. The hole can still go a little bigger, but the flame is burning cleaner now, almost all blue with a little yellow in one spot.

Now I have to get my wife use to it. None of her pots or pans are nearly as big as my brew stuff. Not realizing what I did, she turned it on full and walked away. Flames were lapping around the sides and she almost melted the handle off!

I've have this in my five gallon MLT now at 153F. I'm going to fallow your hop schedule but I have 7% AA pellets. It smells great!

Maybe I should go with .75 oz. FWH?

FWH = First Wort Hop...put in the wort before you begin your boil, basically as you are doing your first runnings.

i usually just do a 60 minute boil, so you can just stick to that.

.75 oz for each addition would work just fine.

It's just my IBUs will be ~27, the extra quarter oz. should put it close to 33 IBU.

I've wanted to do an all-Vienna Pale Ale for a while, ever since reading this thread, and I'm creating the recipe right now. Going to make it an AIPA.

Deathbrewer inspired me to do all-grain stovetop, so why not a recipe too?

I know this is the mother of all thread resurrections.

LOL. Not really the "mother of". After all, we've seen threads that haven't been touched since '05, randomly pop up because someone didn't notice the date on them.
