Also, you can mash thicker and sparge more to get where you need to be.

If doing partial mash would the same #s apply? Currently I just do extract with steeping specialty grains but wanted to move up to PM. I got a 5 gallon cooler from Home Depot on the cheap last fall and want to add the weldless bulkhead to it.

So in order to get my Barley Wine project just right I will still have to use some DME to finish it off. And here I was hoping to go ALL grain.
1.1 is a heck of a # to hit.

I have an imperial pilsner that was AG in my 10g MLT that came out to be 1.086 with 21.5lbs.

Also using 100% fermentables such as honey, sugar, ect... does not mean you are not going AG. Its just a simple easy way to raise SG.
