Assuming a first order phase transition during inflation, a model scenario is described which does not require a tiny coupling constant. Thermal equilibrium is closely maintained as inflation commences. No large scale reheating is necessary. Solutions for N>70 are found for any δρ/ρ in the range 10-5-10-3.
