5 liters of Boston baked beans

I want to make 5 liters (about 1.5 gallons) I don't remember the wattage of my crock pot but when I bought it, I choose one with the highest wattage available. Are there any special considerations I should have when making this much at one time? I am guessing that it will take longer to cook?

I would do them on low for 8 or so hours. We just got a new slow cooker and ours on low is a true slow simmer, around 180 to 190F. Just what you want. It depends though if you are using dried beans or canned. When I have made it I used dried and it sure needed 8 hours....more like 10.
