I completely disagree on the experience level. You never know who will have a breakthrough by being uninhibited with contemporary homebrewing theory. I have brewed a couple of high gravity beers (leaning towards the dogfish 120 side of high gravity brewing) and learned a lot by doing it. if you want to save a bit of $$$ on your initial brews, start with a 1 gallon batches and get the recipe down.
I would say that you will need to mash at a low temperature if you want to do this all grain (maybe 148 or 146). my last one stalled out and was way too sweet because of it, but I think it could be done all grain.
Most of all, good luck and let us know what you learn.
