He never really said what he's doing. There's no real reason you COULDN'T mash the 2-row and crystal together. But it would be much easier to steep the crystal malts and just replace the 2row with a bit more extract.
Not sure what you mean by crystal malts not being mashable. They don't need to be mashed, yes, but you can sure put them in a mash.
