Beginner Q

I have a small two gallon still that i recently built, and have been wondering how long it should take me to get done doing a run if i fill it 80% full? One other question is how full should i actually fill the pot?

How much shine will my mash make?

I made a mash with 2 lbs of sugar, 2 lbs of corn meal, and 2 gallons of distilled water. Im just wondering if anyone knows how much this could possibly make. Another question is how do i know when my mash is done producing alcohol when im cooking it. Very thankful for any help.
