On a high gravity beer with a big grain bill, is it ok to rinse the grains more to get more of

Glad to see recent activity for this clone.I plan on taking on the Hopslam clone this weekend.

dry yeast ...

I like the sound of that idea, any idea how to calculate the yeast count on that? Or doesn't it

I really enjoy the recent release from many of the breweries in my area of Strong Scotch Ales.
(I assume that would be the proper classification.) New Holland has the Dragon's Milk, Founders

Does this beer rival Dragon's Milk or Backwoods Bastard? Those tend to be on the sweeter side
with a distinct Bourbon flavor that I hope to find.
