How big of a mash can you do? It doesn't really make sense to convert an AG to a PM without knowing that.

I've got a 5 gallon Stainless Steel Brew pot. Is that what your looking for?

Yep. According to the green bay racker's mash size calculator, you should be able to mash the whole thing if you strike with 1.68 qt/lb or less. Of course, that would bring you all the way up to the very top of your pot (which is a bad idea), but you could easily mash in at 1.25 qt/lb.

So...I'm not sure this answers your question or not. You could still some of your grains to extract if you want to, but I'd need to know more about why/how you want to do that in order to convert the recipe for you.
