Looks great! Pretty similar to the Shakespeare Stout recipe I just brewed. You probably won't need two packs of dry yeast if you rehydrate it.

A single batch sparge will be the easiest. Just look into your kettle after the first runnings -- the amount of room you have left is the amount to sparge.

agreed, it does look like a nice recipe. would you consider a slightly higher mash temp? like 154? it probably won't matter much, but might be worth thinking about.

edit: well, maybe not. i was surprised to see the 'Shakespeare Stout' recipe called for a 148 mash temp.

so instead of the 1.47 1.47 just do 2.94? Also is the 4.42gal actually the mash drain? not a sparge was kinda confused when i saw that

That cannot be the first runnings volume with only 4 gallons of liquor in the mash. Figure about a gallon per 10 pounds of grain absorption, so expect almost 3 gallons of first runnings. Sparge with enough to reach preboil volume, whatever that turns out to be and RDWHAHB.
