Default Can I mash 32 qts of water and 25 lbs of grain in a 48 qt cooler mashtun?

Most of my brews have been in the 4-8 gallon size but now I am thinking about doing a 10 gallon batch of a milk stout. Beersmith sys I need 32 quarts of water to mash the 25 lbs of grain. Is it realistic to think that that this can be done in a 48 qt rectangular cooler using a stainless steel braid for my filter?

PS, Yes you can. You only need 10G of space, and you've got 12G.

Rackers calc tells me 25 lbs at 1.3 qt / lb (32.5 qt. strike) mashes into 10.1 gallons...good to go!
