Default Imperial Russian Stout Recipe question

How does this recipe look? I'm looking to brew this next week. The grains will be steeped at 150F for 30 minutes. I'm curious how the wyeast 1728 will affect the flavor. I read about it on their website and it seems fairly promising. Any opinions on this one?

recipe looks ok. might want to switch the LME to late and the DME to early.
Have you worked with 12lbs of extract before? it takes a lot of pot space.
can you boil it? can you cool it? high gravity solutions cool slower. if you're stove top you might need to do the LME as a separate pan, just disolved in a gallon or so to serilize it. cool it separatly and add it to the primary.

Thanks for the tip. I've done 10lbs before with no problems. Should I maybe substitute some dextrose for some of the DME?
