Yep. That is a mistake. I did this with a roughly 4.5 gallon boil orignially. If you are doing this full-boil, adjust accordingly to get to about 30 IBU.

I want to do this as my first partial mash in my new 5 gallon beverage cooler (was using my bottling bucket wrapped in a blanket before). Since i've never done a mash in my cooler I have no idea what my efficiency would be, would this grain bill be a safe bet? Also, was thinking of upping the lactose to .75 to get somewhere between this and a commercial milk stout.

I have a half batch of this boiling away on my stove, thanks to Death Brewer's "Stove Top All Grain" Method. I tasted the wort and honestly wanted to start drinking there and then. Then I realized, I'll just be full and not drunk. I think I'll wait.

Your efficiency is going depend a lot on your tun design and how you sparge. Like you said the best way to know is to test it out. Before I moved to all-grain, I did PMs using brew-in-a-bag with a small 2 gallon rubbermaid cooler that could accomodate about 4.5lb of grain. I double batch sparged and got about 75% efficiency. YMMV.

Basically going to be doing one of these

but with a 5 gallon instead of a 10 gallon cooler.
I'm not too savvy with picking a grain bill so thats why I was wondering what to start out with to try and make this. Since the one you posted earlier was for 60% I think maybe it would be a safe one to start out with, if my efficiency is low than I'm safe, if its higher then I get a stronger beer. Right?

Yeah. And there is nothing wrong with that! I actually use the exact same design, but I have a 48qt rectangular cooler and I have always gotten about 75% efficiency. BTW, I haven't done the math, but you might be able to do this all-grain with a 5 gallon cooler assuming 75% efficency.

I hadn't even thought about that! Maybe Allgrain is closer than I thought... According to BobbyM here http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/how-...-needs-123585/
I should be able to fit about 12lbs of grain in my 5 gallon cooler.
However, the only hangup I have is that I have only a 5 gallon pot, so I am limited to about 3 gallon boils.

Sounds like it's time for a new pot! I use my old pot (about the same size as yours) for as my HLT. I would highly highly recommend this one:

You may not be able to brew bigger beers yet, but your average to low gravity beers you could do AG. Once you get a good handle on it, move the hardware onto a bigger rectangular cooler and enjoy the freedom!

Since i just spent $300 on my kegging setup I don't think SWMBO will let me buy any more equipment right now (i'd need a turkey fryer to go with that pot of course!).

Is there any chance you would be able to convert the recipe to partial mash with a 70% eff? I think i want to try and brew this this weekend.

I would just keep it the same. It really won't make much of a difference to be honest. Also, I am jealous of your kegging set-up. I am about over bottling every batch. Whenever you get the chance though, go with that pot and a Bayou Classic SP10 burner off of Amazon. It is the ultimate combo that combines both quality and price. You can get both for about $70 with free shipping.
