I have done a 17.5 lb brew in my 5gal mash tun, but I had to use like a .8 ratio and it was super thick and sucked to work with. I also pulled off extra wort and boiled down to make up for the lower efficency.

Thanks for all the replies. At first I was thinking that I could accomodate the large grain bill by simply doing a thicker mash (1qt/lb or less?) but then conversion comes into play, and got me worrying that I wouldn't get full conversion.
If NB says that it maxes out at 15lbs, then I should, in theory, be able to mash around 13lbs.....albeit in a very confined space. Just gotta make sure I hit the strike temp...and keep it there.
Anybody have any good clone recipies (IPA's) for a larger grain bill that has worked for them in a 5gal MLT?
Thanks!!

Mash in two batches, probably get better efficiency, although it will take a bit longer. And then go out and buy a bigger Mash Tun for the next time.
