I'm pretty sure NB just got it in stock recently, as well.

I haven't stretched my legs with something this big yet... would a 10g batch fit in a keggle? Thats almost 60 lbs of malt!

I better start plugging my piggy bank, double-time.

American Brewmaster in Raleigh carries pale chocolate. They are my LHBS, so I can vouch for them. I have no idea what they charge for shipping, though, since I always pick up my orders in the store.

Good news:
I've got all the hops in my freezer and more Centennial and Cascades on the bine.
I've got a pound of pale chocolate ready to use for something like this.
This sounds like an awesome beer, I really looking forward to brewing and even better drinking it.

Bad news:
This doesn't have any chance of fitting in a 5gal cooler.
I'm going to have to use about 5 pounds of DME to get to that gravity.

Lucky for me there is 1.5# of sugar in the recipe, this reduces the amount of DME needed.

Maybe its time to upgrade to that 10 gal cooler

So, what kind of pale malt are we talking about for this beast? I've got to imagine that the difference between 23# of Maris Otter and 23# of domestic 2-row will be huge.

Is there going to be a smoked version, or is it as the brewer see's fit?

Looks good. Might be a good idea, to get with another brewer in your area and just buy a bag of 2-row and split it. I imagine the price would drop a decent amount doing that.

What are the guidelines on making changes in the recipe for the swap? Not that the recipe doesn't look great, but I would to add a few pounds of flaked rye into mine. If its a big deal ill just leave it out. Also for DFW people Homebrew HQ does carry pale chocolate malt last time I was in their.

For us who are smoking, I suggest smoking the pale malt to a mild smokiness but not an over powering rauchbier-like smokiness. I would say 10-15 minutes on a heavy smoke would be sufficient.

Votes for wood-type? I'm thinking to go milder on the smoke time and harsher on the wood-type to balance this monster a little. Maybe Hickory....

Personally, I'm going to do a smoked BW independant of this and ahead of time, so that I can get some sense of what kind of efficiency to expect with a monster beer. I have no idea right now whether I can expect 80% or 60% with this much grain.

Thinking pretty mild with the smoke; if I use rauchmalt (instread of smoking my own), probably in the 12% - 15% range, versus the 40%+ I'd use for a rauchbier.

Cenntenial is a for sure no go for me. LHBS hasn't seen them in a year.
I think a 10gal cooler should work though it may be near its limit. The recipe is listed with a 65% efficiency. If you could get 70% efficiency then I think you can fit in the 10gal. Just keep a couple pounds of DME on hand just in case. Maybe I'm underestimating the extract efficiency of such a big grain bill but I usually get 80% on my 1.060 beers. I would think that 70% is doable even for one this big.
